    export output as still image

    by monsieurmeus » Wed Jul 25, 2018 11:55 am

    Hi,
    I'm asking a very stupid question but I couldn't find the answer anywhere maybe because it's so simple but here it is : how can I export my output to a single frame with transparencies (like a png file). Everything I get when using export is the shape of my image, not my image. How is it working ?
    thanks if anyone can help
    best
    Samuel

    There is no option to save the graphic engine output for a specific projector, though it might be an interesting feature.
    But you can start fullscreen and make a screenshot.

    Hi mad-matt
    and thanks for your reply. I was afraid of that. Screenshot is what I did but I don't have transparency and I maybe have quality loss… Too bad. Yes this will be an interesting feature, I did a mapping on madmapper with a still imagine because tools are very simple and fast in comparison to photoshop or Gimp.

    Workarounds:
    You can change screenshots format to tif on macOS with a terminal command.
    You can also put a green blackround (a quad with a specific color) so you can remove this color and get transparency using photoshop...
