Houdini 16.5 MPlay viewer

Movie export from MPlay

MPlay supports the creation of movie files from the loaded image sequence and audio.

When rendering with QuickTime, you can either render directly to MPlay or load your rendered sequence in MPlay. Once in MPlay, you can encode the image sequence into a movie file through File ▸ Export ▸ QuickTime Movie.


Linux movie export is implemented via external applications. In particular, if ffmpeg or mencoder are installed on the system and are found in the PATH environment variable, appropriate menu entries will be found in the File ▸ Export submenu.

These external applications are registered via the $HFS/houdini/MVexport file.
