The Brackley Drive-in has a digital projection system that requires media files in the DCP format to project. This page outlines how I helped them convert animations from Animoto.com for things like "Show Starts in 4 Minutes" into DCP.

  1. Save the Animoto file as an M4V file (select Actions | Download and select the highest resolution you have access to).
  2. Load the M4V file into GraphicConverter, a Mac OS X graphics application.
  3. Save the M4V file as a series of TIFF images from inside GraphicConverter (File | Save As and then select TIFF and Export All Available Frames).
  4. The result is a folder filed with TIFF images.
  5. Download and install OpenDCP.
