Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Playblasting a sequence, part of Cinematography: Maya.
…When you're ready to output your sequence to a play blast.…Remember you can do it in two ways, wither through the camera sequencer…play blast menu, or through the main Maya window menu under Play Blast.…And again, the difference is that if you do it through the camera sequencer then…what you see in the sequence will always be what you get in your play blast.…Because if you do it through here it will respect…the difference between animation source time and the sequence edit time.…
They don't have to match exactly and will come out fine.…However if you play blast through this menu you won't see…the resolution gate so you won't know what your framing is.…If you render through the standard Maya window…play blast, then you will get the resolution gate,…but the restriction is that you have to…have source time and edit time exactly match.…And you'll need to create an über cam if you want the entire shot.…So those are the limitations that you are working with.…
I've got an uber cam here that we made in the previous movie.…
