[Snap version bug] I have a bug for rendering my video under linux

Hello!
I hope you can help me.
I don’t speak perfectly english, hope It’s not to bad.

I run synfig studio installed by a snap under linux ubuntu.

When I start the rendering under ffmpeg, the progress bar start up to the end slowly as normal, but no file at all is created.

I wanted to know why it doesn’t work on my ubuntu linux, so I started the rendering tool for synfig with command line to get some error messages:
synfigstudio.synfig path_to_myfile.sifz -v 3 -t ffmpeg -o ./zoom.avi

It still doesn’t work and show me among all the messages this one:

synfig(11713) [16:05:58] avertissement: Cannot open ./synfig_modules.cfg

repeating the last line about 2000 times

and sometimes it displays:

(Avertissement means in french Warning )

My synfig is installed with a ubuntu snap.

I know it seems to be somthing wrong with the ffmpeg library but I don’t know how to fix it

Thanks

Please try with a regular AppImage

I don’t know exactly if snap is up to date every time. I guess there is some time during the snap is not up to date, because the ubuntu guys have to create it manually.

But what is strange is that the snap image is more recent than the normal synfig!

I may try to remove the synfig from snap, install the normal synfig, and try rendering, But I doubt it will work.

I just removed the synfig from snap and installed the appimage by executing it, and it works :slight_smile:
thank you

I remember I tried the appimage. But It disappointed me because I couldn’t run synfig with command line :slight_smile: and because I couldn’t run the renderer engine from command line.

It was strange to me that the launcher start the program by starting the appimage, saved in the download folder.

But after all, it works so it will still use the appimage.

Thank you
