    Animated travel maps

    One feature that I'd like to see in Studio is  the ability to create animated travel maps.

    Yes, Hero does have it (I have hero also in my "stable"), but this one is free and works. It's not a replacement for what heroglyph can do.

    And ... there is always Vasco Da Gama.

    Not cheap but really amazing things one can make with it.

    Watch a couple of demo videos on the MotionStudios site.

    Reading this thread I have downloaded Route Generator. The finished movie is saved as an AVI file.  I imported this into Studio 23 in the usual way.  However although it plays all I get is an orange padlock on the screen.  It will open and play in Photo Gallery, Movie Maker and VLC Media Player.

     Any ideas would be welcome as Pinnacle lists AVI files as importable.

    Re: Animated travel maps

    AVI is a file container. Studio can import them and open them. But it doesn't mean that he can read what's written in it. This depends on the CODEC used to compress the video.

    Route Generator may have installed the right CODEC on WIndows and that's why Photo Gallery or Movie Maker can read your files. But Studio mainly relies on its own library of CODECs, not the ones installed in Windows. For sure the CODEC used by Route Generator is not included in Studio, hence the padlock.

    The only workaround you could apply is to transcode your files to a format that Studio is able to handle (H.264 or Mpeg2, for example). For this you may use an external tool like Avidemux, Mediacoder of Handbrake.

    Another option : is there a way in Route GEnerator to select another export option ?

    Many thanks for your quick reply and explanation.  I found an online converter called Convertio and produced an Mpeg2 file which has happily imported to Pinnacle.  This digital editing is a minefield to a beginner!!
