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.

Route Generator 1.6 released! (See News for more details) or download directly from here.

Problems with new version of Google Maps
Google Maps has released a new version, from which the links can no longer be imported into the current version of Route Generator. There exists a possiblity to switch back to the old (classic) version of Google Maps of which the links still work.
To achieve this, click the (?) Help button in the bottom right corner and select: Return to classic Google Maps (see screenshot)
The next version of Route Generator will support the new version of Google Maps.

Problems Bmp2Avi
I am getting reports of people, having problems with the conversion of Bmp2Avi and/or the quality of the output movie being low. I would like to get rid of Bmp2Avi in Route Generator and use FFmpeg for the conversion on Windows as well (like it already is on Linux). Hopefully this will resolve this issue.
Tip for now: Always make sure that the resolution of the background map is equal to the resolution of the source movie itself.
