Generating movies by using ISL script

Post by bshan »

I am trying to use ISL script to generate movies.

I know there is a <movie> tag that I can use to generate .gif ,.mcv files. But it is just an image file really.

Can I generate a "real" movie by using script? Like the one from screen Capture->Movie?

Thanks

Hi Baojuan-

You can create a Quicktime movie, animated GIF or Google Earth KMZ file from a script.

From the help:
-------------------------
If the file ends with .mov then a Quicktime movie is created. If the file ends with .gif then an animated gif is created. If the file ends with .kmz then a Google Earth KMZ file is created each being time stamped. Note: The file attribute can be a comma separated list of files, e.g.:

<movie file="test.mov,test.kmz,test.gif"/>

This allows you to capture multiple types of movie products in one call.
-------------------------

Is this functionality sufficient, or are you still looking for something different?

Thanks, Jay

I got it. I was thinking to combine several images to one movie.

Thanks,
