Exporting mp4 or Uncompressed

Hello all,

I’m working on a short project (two files only a couple of seconds each), and my tech guy is telling me he needs the files mp4. Toon Boom Studio 8 doesn’t seem to support that, so he told me to export AVI uncompressed. However, there seems to be no “None” option for compression.

Workarounds? TBS is the only software I have suitable for animation. The only video editing software I have is imovie, which isn’t really a high-class animation software, ha…

I’m using TBS 7, and it lets me export in uncompressed AVI format:

  • From the menu, select File > Export Movie
  • In the pop-up window, set Export Format to “AVI” and click the “Options…” button next to the “Export Settings” dropdown list.
  • In the “AVI settings” pop-up window, click the video “settings” button and set the compression type to “None”

The TBS 8.1 User Guide shows that exporting works the same as version 7.

-flips table- Then something must be up with my version, because the option is not even on the dropdown.


Hmm. Time to ask Toon Boom Technical Support: https://store.toonboom.com/contact/support

They should know what’s up with your installation.
