Exported animations do not appear correctly

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Colors in exported animations from Tracking Analyst may not appear as they do in ArcMap.


Tracking Analyst degrades the display going to the codec to a 256 color image. This is done to increase the success of creating the AVI with the most codices.

  • Use the Frame Image Engine animation format.
