# Workflow

Click the puppy dog icon to export and compress to MP4. That's about it.

# Options

Customize how files are exported and handled.


# File name

This field updates automatically to reflect the comp, timeline or sequence name. Overwrite the output file name by entering text.

File name incrementing

To avoid overwriting files, each additional file exported with an existing file name will have an incrementing number appended to the end of the file.

# Export path

Click to set a folder path for Anubis to export to each time.

With no folder selected, Anubis will ask where to save files on each export.

# Relative path from Ae project (After Effects only)

In After Effects, the Export path doubles as a switch for an additional option to export to a folder relative to the .aep.

# Output module (After Effects only)

Ps/An/Pr will output an high quality MOV or AVI by default but Ae uses the render queue to define the file type exported. Select a high quality codec like Lossless or ProRes.

See Color Accuracy for more about output modules.

# Compress to MP4

Compression may be set to Low, Med, or High. These settings define the quality and file size. Select one or all of the settings to output multiple quality files.

Disabling this checkbox will export the larger sized video file without compressing an MP4.

# Delete original render file

Enabling this checkbox will delete the larger sized video file after compressing the MP4.

Disable to keep both video files.

# Open render folder

Enabling this checkbox will open the output folder in Finder or File Explorer to make finding your file easier.

# Export range

The range of an exported video may be defined by setting the work area of timeline in After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere.

# After Effects


# Photoshop


# Premiere


# Animate

While Animate has a loop range to set the playback area, these points are not visible to 3rd party developers. To select a range smaller than the full Animate timeline, select frames directly and the first and last frames will set the start and end of the export.


# Drag and drop

Drop files

Drag and drop files into the Anubis panel to recompressing video files or gifs using the Anubis compressor.

New files will be created at the origin file path. The enabled compression settings within the panel will be used but
