Save Movie

This function enables the images to be saved as movie files. The slices can be saved individually (sagittal, coronal or transversal) or all in one image. A Maximum intensity Projection (MIP) picture can also be saved using this feature.

Getting There

Four different methods exist for saving movies.

The first method is to go to "Save Movie" under the File menu.

The second method is to use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+M". For more on keyboard shortcuts in VQ, please see Keyboard Shortcuts.

The third method to save image slices is to use the thumbnail in the Main Window.

The fourth method is through the MIP Control, which can be opened via the thumbnail in the Main Window. There is an option here to save the movie.
