Unable To Write File...

Question

  • Inquirer
  • Hey guys,

    Just curious, I've been using C4D for a while now, however all of a sudden I get an error message when trying to render out a short animation I made. all it says is "unable to write file."

    Here are my render settings:

    Antialiasing : Best

    Filter: Animation

    Output: 720x486 NTSC, Automatic, All frames (0-150), 30fps.

    Save: Path is to my specified folder, Format Quicktime Movie, Animation Compression, 72dpi, Compositing for After Effects checked

    AO: On

    Motion Blur: On

    Multi Pass Rendering on Object Buffer One.

    I cant' figure out whats going on or if I need to do a reinstall or what. Just thought i'd ask you guys since you may have come across a simliar situation before. Thanks for your time.

    Try turning off multipass rendering. It then renders fine.

    Check your Save path names. Both the Save Image and the Multi-Pass Object Buffer 1.

    Preview and Render to Picture Viewer both worked for test render using my local paths.

    Cheers, Alan.

  • Thanks for looking guys everything seems to be working now,

    I should have mentioned the objects aren't in the scene till frame 31ish, they are scaled from 0 to 1. I just started the animation later on instead of on frame one, I'll just add the black in post.

    Thanks again!

    if you want to make your object invisible then appear just add a "display" tag and keyframe the visibility option

    i know that wasnt your question but it not a good idea to scale your object to make the vanish

    Help me! I get the message "Unable to write file" always when I try to render out in a film format... .mov or .avi alike... Do someone know a solution to that problem?

    Try changing the codec. For QT try using h.264.

    HI, I'm having the same problem. One frame Renders correctly(even though it lasts terribly long however fast the preview render is) but movie just wouldn't render. I read all the posts at this topic's section but nothing helped except one thing which I haven't tried yet and that is : How do I set a different codec, I haven't found it in Render settings... Could it be there's some restriction on(at, about... don't know the right preposition :-)) Student licence?

    There has to be some problem with the project itself because when I start a new one and try to render this one, it works just fine, similarly to the problem that guy with long name beginning with "b" had...

    But I have the multipass render disabled all the time so this won't help me at all.

    Thanks for suggestions.
