How to Create a QuickTime Movie in Maya

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:
  1. Export your files from Maya
  2. Import the files into Premiere (you will need a license for Adobe Premiere for this)
  3. Edit the frames in Premiere
  4. Export a QuickTime movie file from Premiere
What you end up with is a QuickTime movie file that you can upload to YouTube and then embed at your blog or website. Below is the video in full.

Many thanks to Dave for taking the trouble to record such a helpful short video.
