Welcome to the Route Generator page
Route Generator is a free tool to draw routes on a map and generate a movie from it. This movie can be imported in your video editing software (e.g. Pinnacle Studio), so you can add it to your own movies.
Looking for co-developer(s)
Due to positive personal circumstances (getting married, having kids, etc.), I haven't been able to add any new functionality to Route Generator in the last couple of years. Since Route Generator is open source software, I am looking for programmers (c++ and Qt) who are interested in improving the program, either by fixing bugs and adding new features. Also I'd like to move the project to GitHub, so it will be easier for others to share modifications to the software. If anybody is interested in helping me to move the project to GitHub and also help improving the program, please let me know! You can contact me by e-mail (see Help --> About box in the program or bottom of Read Me file in the source code). Thanks in advance!
FFmpeg (by default available for Windows)
I was getting reports of people, having problems with the conversion of Bmp2Avi and/or the quality of the output movie being low. From Route Generator version 1.7.1, FFmpeg is used as default generator, which is much better in encoding HD video's. Thanks to Kyle Schwarz the builder of the Zeranoe FFmpeg Windows builds.
Tip: Always make sure that the resolution of the background map is equal to the resolution of the source movie itself.
Below you can see an example movie created with Route Generator and a screenshot of the program.
