Video File Location

Postby Tallkoala » Thu Jun 18, 2020 11:49 am

I just used Animator for the first time yesterday and picked it up quite easily and made a fist animation. However I then tried to generate a video exporting to MP4 files but I can't locate the finished file. There were over 4000 frames and I could see it saving individual PNG files to the specified output folder as it processed (it took around 6 hours to process these). At the end the black pop up window appeared with the C prompt. However after that all the PNG files vanished in the output folder and all that was left was a text file 'ffmpeg_log_mp4' but no video file anywhere.
Please can someone help me with this, either to advise where I can find the finished film file or let me know if it looks like there has been an error.

As an up date to this, I have just made another test video from the same animation but just a 1.5 second clip with about 80 frames, and it saved ok in the correct output folder. The MOV and MP4 files have saved fine. (All the PNG files vanished again but thats not a problem if the video file has saved).
