I was wondering if I could render movies that are 1280x720 in the current version of Chromanator, not High Definition, just uncompressed 1280x720 regulure old square pixle avi or quicktime files.

Yes, as far as I can tell, this is easily done in the current version of Chromanator. If you have a movie file with those dimension, you would simply create a new project as you would any other. At the "Welcome to Chromanator" window select "New".

You should now be directed to "Project Settings". At the bottom you are given the options "New Project", "Open", and "Custom". Custom is what you want to select.

Project settings:


You now want to enter the dimensions of your movie file. Do this by locating "Size", and then entering the dimensions you require.

Project Settings (Custom):


Once you have done that, select "New Project" from the bottom once more, and there you have it, a project window meant for the dimensions of 1280 x 720. If you do not have a movie file with those dimensions, you can still do the above steps, and then scale your project to fit, but I believe this will distort your picture, cause it to look stretched, and possibly lower the quality, as it did for myself.

About the rendering formats. There is a selection of different codec's and options in the "Render Settings"; one of which is an uncompressed .avi format, and another is a Quicktime "none", which means no compression.

Hope that will do.

Thank you, that is exactly what I wanted to hear, and those screenshots made it all very clear.
