Hello Everyone! I am pretty new to Vision lab and I have a Question about Rendering. I put in my render settings and then I click render and type in the name. But I don't know which codec I should use. I have read 'Which codec do I use?' in the knowledge base but whenever I click a codec (I don't know the right one anyway) and then I click ok it says Unable to create export movie. Please help!

Thanks!

Hey man,

Make sure you have the latest Quicktime and DirectX installed. Also, make sure that whatever disk you are saving the movie to has enough space to store it. If the problem persists after you have confirmed those things, let us know and we'll go from there.

Does it matter whether you choose Quicktime or AVI in the render settings?

Some reason it worked when I put it into the Documents folder. I think it was because I had the mov. file that didn't have the effects in the movie folder. So I put the one with the effects in replace of the one without.

Ah, that could cause a problem, if you were using the same name. So you got it working?

For future reference, it can be quite handy to devise a naming system whereby the name of the file will tell you whether you have added effects to it or not. Once you start having multiple versions of files, with effects and without, its handy to be able to identify them at a glance.
