Strange error messages started to appear today when i tried to render.
it worked fine this morning. haven´t changed anything… well… I just made the timeline longer, from 30s to 2min
and added a few new images.
First I tried with ffmpeg and got the error messages shown in the attached file “error code.png”
then I thought I would give it a try with yuv420p since I had issues before with rendering with ffmpeg in synfig (only on this computer, I don´t know why) and got the error message shown in the attached file “error code2.png”
can anyone tell me what went wrong and how I fix it?
the project I´m working on is for a friend of mine and he wants it to be confidential until it´s released.
By the way there´s one other thing I´m wondering about…
is there any differences between the windows version of synfig and the mac version?
The reason I´m asking is that the file that I create in windows (on a PC, not via parallels or boot camp) won´t work properly on my mac. the images “cannot be found” if I go from the windows version to the mac version.
It looks though like it works fine if I first create the project on my mac and then go the PC version and back again.
Images can be lost if they are not moved together with the same relative path. It is possible that the path of the images were stored in a absolute path and then when moving it can’t be found. The best thing is to store the images in a folder relatively below to the sifz file and move all together to other computer.
Do you have many images and are they huge?
It can explain the memory problems.
If you want, you can send to me the files in a private email: genetita at gmail dot com.
I can try to render in other platforms, including: Linux (different flavors), Mac OSX Lion and Window Vista, so I can confirm if it is a file, Synfig or operating system problem.
I´ll have to find another way to solve this. thanks any way
by the way… the files created in the windows version of synfig should work fine in the mac OS version right? this is just “bad luck” that the images aren´t imported when I sit on my MAC and try to open the file that I created on my PC? just wondering
I dont’ see any reason to do not work on Mac if the files were made in Windows. Unless the path were stored in the sifz file as absolute path. Can you open the file on windows and save it as sif (instead of sifz) and open it on a text editor and search the path of the image files? This can be a clue.
redoing all of the scene and then cutting it into smaller parts and putting it together with a video editor. I think I´ll continue using iMovie to put them together since I´m doing all of the video editing on my MAC .
is Avidemux any good? I have heard about it bout never tried it.
