Error when trying to render video.

Offline
#1 brycee22
Hello!
LRTimelapse has been great. I've created many videos using my Nikon RAW files, however I am working with another photographers photos (Canon/CR2) at the moment, and only now am I receiving an error message when trying to render a video.

Here are the details:
Error Message: "The external encoder return an error. Please check the log file for details:
Version I am using: 3.4.1 (licensed full version)
Java: Java is up to date on my Win/64-bit Machine.
LR Exports the images just fine and they all appear to be in order and the correct naming sequence (ie: LRT_00001.jpg, etc)

I must admit, I've never seen this message... If the JPGs are there and correctly named, the used camera can not be the problem.
I suspect something being wrong with the pathname.
Try moving the intermediary sequence to another location, for example D:\LRTIntermediaries\LRT_Seq1
Make sure not to put it directly in the root of the drive.

I'll try that tonight when I get back to the office. You might be right as I believe the folder named by the photographer was something weird like "% TC 1-" - those special characters might be confusing the software. I'll try again tonight and report back to you.

You definitely should not use such characters in the path, there is a lot of things that will fail then... :-)
