Exporting a huge Timelapse with 8000 Frames

Offline
#1 steve2303
Hello,

I work with LR Timelapse for quite some time now and have a serious problem with my latest project. On my last vacation I shot 30 timelapses. However instead of exporting every timelapse alone I decided to do it all at once to save a vast amount of time. Therefore I edited all the timelapses alone with LR Timelapse and Lightroom as always. The only difference is that I did not export the timelapses afterwards, I just moved on with another one of my 30 timelapses. After some hours of intense work I finaly had all my timelapses edited and then I just marked all my frames of the 30 Timelapses in Lightroom and clicked export (of course I clicked export with the LR TImelapse plugin!). After about 26 hours all the frames where finally exported and i could open up LR Timelapse to render the video in Prores. Sadly everytime I click export, the render crashes after about 3200 frames. It then says that I should look at the Log File but there is nothing! it only says:

(The log is longer of course but it is always the same above)
Code:

What can I do to prevent this from happening? Is it possible that LR Timelapse is filling up my harddrive (the C partition where windows is installed) during exporting the video and therefore forcing the progress to stop (before the drive is completley full)?

Hi Steve,
this is the wrong log - I'd need the one from LRTimelapse (info menu). But I think, the problem might be that your are mixing up differend sequences. If those do not have the same aspect ratios, the encoder will fail. If so, it's the problem described here in the faq: http://forum.lrtimelapse.com/Thread-rend...e-sequence
But to be certain, you could try again (via file / render video in LRT) and send me the log file.

To make it right: split the LRT_ folder back into the single timelapse sequences. Use Lightroom or another tool to rename the files in each separated folder so that they are named LRT_00001.jpg etc...
Now you can open the render dialog in LRTimelapse, set the desired render settings, then click on choose and shift-select all of the intermediary sequences. LRTimelapse will render them one after each other in batch.

When I click "info" and choose "Log-Datei anzeigen" nothing happens. Not even the Strg+L works. Restarting the PC does not work either

What do you mean with "restarting the pc does not work?"?
The log file will be located in: C:\Users\<YOURUSERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\LRTimelapse\LRTimelapse.log
I'll need that to be able to see what's going on.
It's quite unusual that LRTimelapse crashes completely, but if so, you can kill the task via taskmanager. Make sure to kill any instance of "Exiftool" too.
