Exported animations do not appear correctly


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.

Solution or Workaround

Select one of the options below.

  • Use the Frame Image Engine animation format.
  • Select a color that is more accurately converted to 256 color image.
