[SOLVED] Exporting?

Sorry, but I’m new here, and I’m still trying to figure this program out.

I’m trying to export an animation, (about 19 frames) at 12 frames per second as a .mov file. It has no sound, and is just a bunch of images. However, even though everything seems to work perfectly, I can’t find the file.

The same thing occurs when I export as a GIF and PNG, but for the GIF, it just says it failed.

I’m not sure if this is a bug, or if it’s just a misc, so I put it here.

Also, I know that every new frame shows the previous frame in grey, but can I remove that in the exported video? I find it useful, but I don’t want to see it in the images.


@135dragon unfortunately, pencil2d’s export feature currently only supports image sequences efficiently, video export isn’t that good yet. So its suggested to use another software to do the conversion from image sequences to gif or video format. Another member here has done videos for it and how it can be done using free software, so have a look at it:

As for the frames showing previous frames, a bit faded, is just the option about the onion skin. You can turn it on/off from View>Onion Skin>


Take care.

@135dragon There are plans to support video export, but for now it’s as Sumit says. The videos he posted are found as entries in our dedicated FAQ and “Tutorials” pages, please give them a visit to clear out further doubts about the program:

However if there’s anything else we can help you with, please let us know through this forum :slight_smile:

p.s. The “Shotcut” video I think is a bit too much for easy video export, so I’d also recommend to take a look at the Pencil2D & Blender video for exporting youtube compliant videos.


what i did was do export>video export>take the icon for the picture and put it in what ever library you want>export video
