frame rate output above 30fps in truespace

Post by solar fleet »

Greetings everyone:

Question. Is anyone aware of some way to trick, hack, or otherwise get truespace (any version) to render an animation in a frame rate above 30 FPS?

Have been playing with the old VistaPro landscape rendering program, which surprisingly still has some useful life left in it. Have been playing with different frame rate outputs which it lets you select any number of fps. 30 being the de facto standard, when upping to 60 fps is startling in quality of output. While the file size also increase dramatically, the final output is worth it.

Thanks for any ideas you may have.
Jeff

An animation is made of frames. You should render your animation as still images (frames), in PNG for best quality and keep transparency if needed, and convert the numbered files into animation in a video edition program.
This way you have better control over frame rate and compression mode.
Also, if trueSpace crashes during the animation rendering you won't loose everything : just restart animation rendering at the frame that failed.
