View Full Version : Best way to make movie file (.mov, or .avi, ...) from the output of OpenGl program?

Hi,

I have coded a 3D animation with OpenGl and I would like to put it on a web page. What's the best way to produce a QuickTime .MOV file (or .AVI, or animated GIF) from the output (rendering) of my program?

Thanks

The easiest thing to do is dump the frame buffer to a .TGA file. There is a freeware program called BMPtoAVI which will make an .AVI from the TGA files. You can set the frame rate using this program.

hope that helps
