Animator Minor Bug: Invalid Characters in Film (& File) Name

Postby greenfrog5x5 » Tue Mar 03, 2020 1:58 am

Not a huge problem, but when I was first setting up Animator I used a colon in my film name "1: Film Description". When I tried to output a video, the video would never output. It would give me the options, but when I hit 'generate' the window would disappear and nothing else would happen. No error or message, so I didn't know what to do.

I started troubleshooting and soon realized that it was the colon in the film name, getting transferred into the 'file name' for the video output causing the problem. Removing the colon in the film name fixed this. I expect just changing it in the file name every time you output would also work.

It would be good to have the program check the file name and warn the user that they have invalid characters, or simply strip them out automatically (or both).
