Example city map large export

September ’17

The September issue contains a detailed tutorial on doing extra-large bitmap exports from CC3+. Written by Tome and CC3+ manual author Remy Monsen, the tutorial takes an indepth look at managing exports that go beyond the standard sizes you normally create.

On 22 pages the "Large Exports" tutorial covers creating bitmaps that may be several Gigabytes in size, by leveraging the power of section exports and stitching them together automatically. The first part takes you through the necessary steps in an easy to follow fashion. And if you want to dig deeper into the details, Remy does just that in the later parts of the tutorial, looking closely at the process and the scripts he created.

The tutorial pack Large Exports includes

  • 1 22-page tutorial pdf
  • 3 scripts for exporting rectangular sections and stitching them together
  • 64-bit ImageMagick software
  • 2 automation files
