Hello, this is my first post in this forum and I hope I’m doing my question in the right place.
I’m using UE version 4.7.5 and I know how to create a camera and make a movie (I can do it in my laptop). But when I try to do the same thing in my desktop computer I get this crash all the time. I get a black window (the one to start to render the animation) then turns white and after that Unreal Engine just shut down.
I’ve been reading a lot about what this problem and I didn’t find any solution. The only thing I can see that is different between my laptop and desktop computer is the Microsoft Visual C++ version and the Microsoft .NET Framework version also, but I’m not sure if this is related to my problem.
Anybody knows what could it be?
My computer specs:
Intel i7 3.4
32 GB Ram
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 980
When i try to make a movie, the game start screen is visible and it records my actions. However, i thought it would record your matinee movie. Additionally the export version (1980 res) creates a rediculous large export file size…over 150GB
@3dluis not sure whats causing you to crash, i have had this problem and the only way i found to fix it was a clean install of unreal and MS studio.
@unit23 select your matinee and click play on level load, that way when you render it out it will play and record it for you. 150gb files are normal as-well, mine record at about 1.9 GB/s at 4k and 1080 is around 500MB/s
Make sure to report your crash on answerhub + post your crash log (documents/unrealproject/project name/saved/logs/the file which gets generated after the crash)
The big file size is because of the avi file type. You can reduce it when you render your movie as jpg files which you put together in a program like sony vegas or camtasia. -> unfortunately atm it’s not possible to change the output file to wmv or any other format (would be cool if somebody knows if it’s possible to change that in C++?) https://answers.unrealengine.com/index.html
