View Full Version : Not having much luck with LW 8

Tried to render out a short animation as .rtv and does not work.
Renders all frames but only ouputs the last frame as a .rtv file.

Works just fine in 7.5c using exactly the same settings. Wonder if I should just wait for a bug fix update??

Aplogies. I got it to output .rtv file. Messed up a camera setting and forgot the I&O of the clip was trimmed back in VT3.

I lost an afternoon of rendering because I rerendered an rtv file I had open in T-edit at the same time, and instead of overwriting it, it just failed with no warning. And I was left with a 1 frame file.

LW7.5 btw

John, how long was your short animation? In 7.5 there was a problem rendering long (10S?) RTVs (it renders only the last n frames). I'm curious as to whether that's been fixed in 8.

Only 120 frames.

Thanks. I'd say try a 300 frame animation, but I'll be doing that myself soon enough. :D

Danner: I agree, file-locking could be a bit more robust between all these apps...
