This excellent tutorial below was created by my colleague David Creighton at Buckinghamshire New University, and explains briefly but clearly exactly how to go about creating a Quicktime movie from Maya. This is something that animation students ask about all the time, and it is super helpful to have a short video that takes you through all the steps.
In brief, what the video explains is how to do the following:
- Export your files from Maya
- Import the files into Premiere (you will need a license for Adobe Premiere for this)
- Edit the frames in Premiere
- Export a QuickTime movie file from Premiere
Many thanks to Dave for taking the trouble to record such a helpful short video.
