What types of files can I import into ZEPLAY?

Applies to

  • ZEPLAY (All Versions)

Answer

There are several criteria that a file must meet in order to be playable in ZEPLAY.  Regardless of what version of ZEPLAY you are using, you must ensure that:

  1. The file's resolution exactly matches the resolution selected in ZEPLAY
    e.g. If you are shooting a game in 720p, the file must be 1280x720 pixels.
  2. The file's frame-rate exactly matches the frame-rate selected in ZEPLAY
    e.g. If you are using 720p @ 59.94 fps, the file must be 59.94 fps.
  3. The file has either a) no audio, or b) 48 kHz PCM audio

The codecs that ZEPLAY supports depend on the version of ZEPLAY that you are running.
