Change the Format of Images

The ImageFormat transformation task transforms images in a track into another format. The new output track is named taskName.Output, where taskName is the name of the transformation task (the input track is not modified).

To change the format of images

  2. In the [Transform] section, add a new transformation task by setting the TransformEngineN parameter. You can give the task any name, for example:
