Must have option to download video of the animation in mp4 format.

Man of Science shared this question 1 month ago

Geogebra has given option to download the file in so many formats, but none that is useful to general public. There's an option to download in 3D print format: who uses that; maybe 1 in ten thousand. But there is no option to download the animation in video format(in mp4) which most of the people using geogebra could use. There's an option to export in gif format, but it takes days for the export to be completed, if the file is even slightly complex. Screen recording the animation is not helpful either, as it produces jittery videos.


It is my sincere request, as sincere as it could be humanly possible, to include an option to export the animation in video format(in mp4).

Sometimes it is a good idea to screen-record the activity. It can be faster than using the very GeoGebra app.

For many of my animated geogebra gifs I use screentogif (which has a desktop version and can also export as mp4).

This way, you can also record several views at the same time.

For example it is what I did to create this .gif

We won't add that (as you can use any screen recording software).


You can download animated GIF and also WEBM which you can convert to .mp4, see https://wiki.geogebra.org/e...

Hello Mr. Michael,

It seems that you have categorically decided against including the option to export the animation in mp4 video format. I don't know why, when Geogebra has the option to export in so many formats then why not add another one. What harm could it possibly do. On the other hand, it could be so very helpful to people who do not have access to good quality computer or internet connection. I'm from India, wherein still majority of population doesn't have access to either of those. Video format lets the people of 3rd world countries to share them from one person to another quite easily. Not many students have time or the inclination to learn how to use geogebra. If it were a video, they could just watch it, and moreover, if they are interested, they could always use the geogebra file to explore what more could be learned.

The link that you've shared, I had already seen that. As I've already told you in my original post that exporting gif takes ages, and everytime I try to export as gif, my laptop hangs (it has 5 GB DDR3 RAM, intel i5 processor). Also, screen recording the animation produces laggard video which is jittery, which is not at all good.

Therefore, I once again request you to consider this request to allow people to export the animation in video format.

In america, you might be having quite good computers and internet connection, but not all other in the world do. Please think about it..

Sorry, I don't know how to say it any more clearly. We won't be adding that


Have you tried using GeoGebra Classic 5?

intenta reducir el tamaño de la exportacion reduciendo la resolucion o el numero de fotogramas

podrías subir aquí el archivo a exportar y decir cual es el deslizador que hace de tiempo en la exportacion ?

Here's a link to one of the geogebra file that I've made, and whenever I try to export it, my laptop hangs( it has 5GB DDR 3 Ram, and intel i5 processor): https://www.geogebra.org/m/akn72exg

Before exporting, i tried to lower down the maximum value that a slider can attain. Even then, it hangs everytime.

ExportImage("type", "webm", "slider", n) works fine for me in Chrome. You can convert it to mp4 if you really need to but webm plays in most modern players https://cloudconvert.com/we...

I agree. As a teacher on the Navajo Nation 15% on my students have decent internet access. In a time when we are trying to do as much instruction as is possible through distance instruction not having them be able to download it easily, when they are at one of our internet hubs into a readily accessible format makes their learning inequitable.

In a time when we are trying to ensure that every student has the best learning and experience in mathematics it seems like this is really a choice about equity. I don't have the means to necessarily copy GeoGebra activities with a Screen Recording program and MP4 is one of the ones that it handled most easily by educational platforms. It can also be compressed quite easily to create a reasonable sized download. Where my students are needing to travel a distance to download material already it seems this is a reasonable request. In fact to hear your response I am very disappointed. You are limiting the number of people that would be able to use GeoGebra with all of its great resources and tools.

Please post an example of the .ggb file(s) you are having trouble making an animated GIF from

Hello,

I saw your video, it's not smoothly rotating. This is the same sort of result that screen recording produces. Are you happy with this jittery video..?

la suavidad en el movimiento depende de muchos factores. velocidad e incremento del deslizador y si se hace o no manualment, también de si GG está funcionando offline u online

podría ser deseable que se pusiera la exportacion a mp4 pero yo prefiero que el equipo de GG se dedique a mejorar GG en aquello a lo que se dedica; LAS MATEMATICAS

peticiones las hay por decenas al mes pero lo prioritario no es conseguir algo que se puede conseguir con otro software

además mp4 crea archivos con demasiado peso para subirlos aquí
