Getting error box at end of long export

Offline
#1 lightpanther
Unfortunately, I accidentally managed to dismiss the box with the exact text in it, before I could note it down, but it was something *very close* to the following:


"unable to export

attempt to index LRTExport task:lua443 '?' a nil value"


It was particularly depressing as this was my first attempt to export a timelapse of nontrivial length. It went all the way through a long two-hour export process, and then told me this at the very end, with no option but "ok". Need to know what I'm doing wrong before I try to export it again, as it waits till the end to discover if it fails!

Are you using the latest version of LRTimelapse? Please upgrade if not. This error is certainly not normal. Please export again, and if it happens again, then send me a screenshot with the error, if it happens again.

LRT 5.0.6  LR6 standalone

Hi Gunther. It rendered this second time  Smile

I'm not entirely sure what the problem was the first time, but here is my suspicion: there was another subfolder below the parent that had the same name as the parent (this was generated by mistake when I was moving folders in windows, but I forgot about it). The sub folder contained a few frames from another timelapse, which I didn't edit in either LRT or LR, I was going to delete them in LR prior to export, but I figured that might be a risky thing to do half way through the LRT workflow (wish I had now!). Anyway, I deleted this folder after the first export failed and this time it worked okay.

I can't be sure that was the reason, but it's the only thing I can see immediately that might have caused it. I will certainly let you know if it happens again.

I'm pretty sure that was the reason.
