First off I use a Mac.....So i'm loving this Program so much!!
I got the gist of the animation process...Last night I made an animation and rendered it while I slept..But forgot to choose a file destination before going to bed. so when I woke up the rendering was done but since I didn't choose a file destination all the frames where just stored in the Mandelbub 3d main file. I can find them, but cant figure out how tho grab them all and relocate or even just play them back. yes I am a newbie....any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks Drumhead Dad

you can check for yourself, if you never edited the target location for the files, check the

"Animation Window" there in the lower part is the "Output Folder" setting, it defaults to your installation folder of mb3d, so i guess this is where your images are now...

@cKleinhuis

Yes they in that destination folder but like I say I'm using a mac and there's no way to open them.
It really doesn't matter anyway I also messed up and didn't change the output format from .bmp to .jpeg. so their  unusable.
Wish we could save the animation as an mp4 then it could be played on almost any software.

It renders to an 'image sequence', you need to use other software to make a video out of it.
On Windows you can use VirtualDub, I think on the Mac people use Quicktime (pro?) to do this.

not sure but if Mac has ffmpeg command then something like this should work...
Code:
ffmpeg -f image2 -s 1280x720 -r 24 -i /folder/full/of/bmpfiles/basefilename.%05d.bmp -c:v libx264 -preset veryslow -crf 18 -pix_fmt yuv422p /folder/where/you/want/video/basefilename.mp4

where basefilename is the sequence prefix, %05d replaces a 5 digit index padded with 0s like basename.00001.bmp
