- Click “render”
- Into “OUtput To” field type the name of a destination folder. In my case it was “c:\temp”
- Leave everything else as the default
- Click “Start Render”
Ok, it looks like the problem is directly related to using c:\temp
I initially started checking the steps and decided to leave my settings as they were when PI came up which meant it was going to e:\temp, yes I have multiple temp folders, for reasons.
That worked ok. It actually created a file e:\temp.mov
I tried changing the type to mp4 and that still worked.
I changed the path to c:\temp and boom.
So, it’s probably a permissions issue under Windows when PI tries to create a file in the root of C:
Here’s the error info from event viewer in case that’s of help. If PI has any logging I can turn on, I’ll be happy to.
