I have a file of 800 animation frames I will be rendering in maya and wonder if final cut express would be suitaable for importing and editing them into a finished animation? (I also have imovie and director available)

What format would they best be rendered in for import?

Thank you for your reply!

to get a clean render, you've got to render every frame in individual files.. so Targa files are good quality. Then you've got to import your sequence into a program and tell the program that every image imported is 1 frame.. or else the program will just put each picture for 5 seconds or something...

Personaly I would render the Maya animation in AVI not to break my head, but it sometimes cuts down alot of quality... and takes long...

Anyway... GL... and if I were you.. I'd get an after effects program to assemble the animated frames togeather.. like Combustion...

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. When you mean an after effects program,

how about after effects, which I also have?

Could you explain why this type program instead of final cut etc.

Thanks for the reply!
