Size of Exported Bitmap Frames

Post by Asa_E-E » Mon Jul 30, 2012 6:40 am

For the project I am working on, I will likely be exporting bitmap frames at fairly FPS to process at a later time. Given that I will be generating a large number of bitmap images, I am slightly concerned with the size of each bitmap image. I would expect image sizes of around 0.7 MB (832 x 832, 8-bit color depth) but the image I export are closer to 2 MB. Does anyone know why the images are this large?

Hello -

Bitmaps exported from Tracking Tools are in 24 bit format with no compression, which would explain the larger size you are seeing.
