Problems with Video Generation

Postby Joe Randolph » Wed Feb 05, 2020 3:41 pm

I am having problems getting my videos to export at the entire length of the animation. It plays fine in Sketchup, but when I export it it cuts it off. Has anyone had this problem?

Are you generating in 'natural mode', that is, without rendering?

Possibly it may help you post or PM the model.

... Yes, I've had problems of this kind myself recently. I first chose AVI format and every export broke above a certain size. - Did I chose H.264 mp4 format instead, the export worked fine then.

Thank you for the reply. I have attached the skp file and the video output file.

I can generate the video (below in GIF) without problem.

Could you elaborate more on what is going wrong with your environment?

On my video, it does not play the entire animation. I have attached my output video.

Thanks!

Could you post a screenshot of the video generation dialog box before you launch the generation.

Also, please leave the Ruby console open; you will see traces, and possibly errors.

But if the Mov file is generated, then it must be something in either the animation or the spécifications in the dialog box for video generation.

The settings seem correct - Please rerun the video generation with the Ruby Console.

...and check that you generate all frames till frame 201.
Then you should get a a 'black' window for a few second (FFmpeg).

You can also check in the folder of generation whether you have all the image files, numbered from 1 to 201.

If you still get a truncated video, I would suggest you get the latest version of FFmpeg.
See this post for instruction
