Export movie a JPEG sequence option missing?

I am trying to export a movie to a jpeg sequence but the option to pick between jpeg and mp4 is missing from the dialoge. All I get is movie quality and resolution options. Has anyone else encountered this? I'm using the ultimate version 2.1 build 3.

I really need to have the jpeg option because running a mp4 through after effects adds hours to the time needed to export a composited video.

Thanks!

I would have thought AE read MP4 easily as a standard video format in single file (even though compressed) and reading compressed jpegs file by file would be much longer?

These are all the options and what I am looking at. The lumion dialogue used to have options that said "img" and "mp4" to pick the export format. Now both are missing. I might need to re-install the program (screwed in that case since the IT guy isn't in today).


After Effects always exports much slower with the mp4 format than just an image sequence for some reason. I've used uncompressed image formats as well from 3ds Max and the like and still noticed the same thing. I am exporting to wmv format so that might be my problem(I know... it's the only format that completely computer illiterate clients don't have trouble with). Normally it adds an hour or so to a 45min export. I've had it add as much as 8-9 hours however. Could be improved since I recently went from a much older version to the CS6.5 version.

Havent got Ultimate in front of me at moment, but looks like you have Lumion in Basic view,  go to settings and turn on Advanced.

FAQ: "Settings -> Always Advanced Mode on: This displays additional options, sliders, buttons and parameters which can be adjusted in Lumion. If you do not want to see the advanced options all the time, you can turn them on temporarily by pressing the CTRL key to see extra options in the following modes"

Hi tbertschinger, I'd recommend that you install Lumion 2.5 - 'advanced mode' was removed earlier this year, so the IMG output option is no longer hidden.
