What types of files can I import into ZEPLAY?

Applies to

  • ZEPLAY (All Versions)


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.
