    I am enjoying my experience with alpha 2 on my MacBook Pro right now, but when I pull up the export option, I am only able to export the frames. I would love to see the availability of the export to “movie clip” feature become available soon? When might I be able to expect to see this feature? I would love to already be able to download and share my work.

    Thanks Rebekah! Yes, exporting in a movie format is not ready yet. We plan to have it done in Alpha 4. Alpha 3 is released in a couple of weeks if all goes well. Then a few weeks later – Alpha 4.

    One suggestion: some of us have ffmpeg, so we can use that to convert individual images to movie files.. just need a hotkey to execute a script we can modify. Perhaps being able to pass as an argument to the script the path to the where the images were last saved and the frame range is maybe all we’d need, e.g.

    /some/where/foo.%04d.png 1 200

    ..where 1 is the start frame, 200 is the end frame, and %04d is the frame padding indicator.

    If there’s an .xml, .json, or some other text file that has the info we need, that could work instead.
    This would allow advanced users to output movie files in various formats without it having to be compiled into animation paper.

    Sure. That’s also something we plan to do. Exporting X-Sheet data (timing, layers and where each drawing is used) will be exportable as some kind of XML file. We did early tests with this a while ago, and got exported png files imported directly into Final Cut Pro (on Mac) all with correct timing, layers and clone drawings.
