Default Publishing Movies in Maya

Guys what's the deal. I make animations and so far can only publish them after going through playblast. Then it shows the soft mode edits, the XYZ thing in the corner and it has poor resolution. How do I save my movies as .mov files? How do I increase the quality (getting rid of the grey background)?

Thanks,

go to the render menu set... and choose batch render.

but you have to have your render set up in render globals for what you want to do... file extension, animation length, rendering camera, etc.

Thanks for your response. When I batch render my animation it comes up with a filename + .iff. What do I do with the .iff file to make it into a movie? If it is an animation shouldn't it produce multiple .iffs to use. I don't have any problems creating animations and design, but publishing them is a serious issue for me.

hey, i dont know if this would help but this is what i do...
i just change the .iff file to .tga (targa), then render which will take a long time.
then get a video program(i use videomach) and combine all the pictures and do a final render, which ends up to be .mov or whateva format you want.

have fun, hope you work it out

Make sure that the name format is set to "name.#.ext".
