image export questions..

Hi,

I want to export jitter images to be printed to 35mm film eventually..

question 1:

simplest is to go [exportimage myname tiff] -> [jit.matrix]
but is there a way to switch off the standard packbits compression
without using the dialog ?????

question 2:

I just upgraded to jitter 1.5.2 and the new [jit.openexr] object is
great, but it is not yet sure the filmlab i’ll be using actually
supports it.. :(

hence my next question: any chance that jitter will be supporting
either cineon or dpx formats anytime ?

http://www.cineon.com/file_format.php

investigating my options here…

ciao,

Joost.

At this time, no. Getting at these options and creating a reasonable-
to-use interface via max messages is a bit of a design challenge,
which I haven’t had the time or courage to deal with. It is on my
long-term list of things to play with, though.

This is something I have wanted as well. All you can do right now I
guess is use jit.qt.record and set the appropriate quality attributes
and codec and record a 1 frame movie. Perhaps an Applescript could
then convert it to a normal image format.

Thanks for the responses,

i realize it is not easy to deal with all the different paramaters of
the different codecs etc., but your playing with would be highly
appreciated with it, also in the long run…

i’ve been thinking of that too, or of trying to find an application
which can somehow translate batches of openEXR files into some other
higher-quality format my lab likes….

getting back to this old thread:
does anybody know why tiffs are exported with standard compression on
though ?
is this some kind of systemwide default setting which I could perhaps
change otherwise ?

ciao,

Joost.

Hi
I’m also looking for a way to get 32 or at least 16-bit image sequences out of Jitter.

jit.openexr should do the trick but I can’t seem to get it to play nice with After Effects. The colors end up wildly out of range. Is there there a way to set it so that the values I get in AE will match the values I had in my jitter matrix?

or! I’d gladly settle for a nice 16 bit tiff. Is there a way to specify bit depth when I send the export image message to jit.matrix?

Thanks so much
- Ted
