I downloaded synfig studio 1.4.2 stable but am unable to render at all the different format after animation. When ever I click render it will bring out command page. ( C:\window\system32\cdm.exe ). Am using window10 64bit hp laptop. I need help
Yes, on Windows, a prompt may temporarily appear when rendering.
According to No ouput file after rendering - #6 by Gwyndy , the problem was an antivirus issue.
That is what happens. And it may take a while (up to few hrs) depending on your animation and your pc’s resources.
Alright, thanks you for the advice
Was it an antivirus issue too?
For info, my workaround is to disable AVG antivirus whilst I am rendering a project. (I haven’t yet found any other option.) I don’t like doing this for obvious reasons so I always turn off my WiFi access whilst AVG is off.
@Gwyndy you should be able to set up exclusions in AVG
@Amolese such options exist in all the modern antiviruses
But you can still use a virtual machine under Linux
@BobSynfig @Amolese I had tried that but had only included synfig.exe and synfigstudio.exe in the exceptions list. I have now changed this to the entire Synfig folder and it’s working fine.
Thanks for your help.
UPDATE: I have tried again with just ffmepg.exe (which is what I am using for rendering) in the exceptions list and that is also fine. Better, I think, than including the entire Synfig folder structure.
