Animation Player

The animation player is a utility typically used for previewing rendered animations, supporting all image and video formats also supported by Blender. This is a convenient way to play back image sequences at the correct frame rate.

Usage

Справка

Меню

Topbar ‣ Render ‣ View Animation

Клавиатурное сокращение

Ctrl-F11

Launching the animation player opens a new window, playing back images or a video located at the render output of the current scene. You can also drop images or movie files in a running animation player. It will then restart the player with the new data.

Совет

An external player can also be used instead of the one included in Blender. To do this, select it in the Preferences.

Player Options

Ping Pong

When enabled, playback loops forwards than backwards.

X/Y Flip

Flip the image horizontally or vertically.

Viewing the animation from a different perspective can help you see the animation with «fresh eyes».

Frame Cache

Image files are cached during playback for faster access.

While loading images is rarely a bottleneck, there are situations where high resolution images may slow down playback causing frame skipping.
