Problem with video post
show user profile  lanza
Hi, I'm new to this forum, and relatively new to 3ds max. I'm having a problem with using video post.
So, I made this animation where I'm using 6 cameras, and I want to render it using video post. I set up all the queues in Video post, then set an Image output event, but when I run the render I get the message: "Viewport "Camera002" defined but not found in scene". Then the render would stop.
I figured out that if I have the cameras I want to use active in the viewports, it renders with no problem.
But I can't imagine that is the only way? Maximum viewports is four if I'm not mistaking. So how could I fix this?
Hope you understood what I meant and can help. I tried Google-ing this but I really didn't find anything about it!

Well I googled some more and it seems like videopost is not used that much anymore. So what is the most proper way when making an animation with multiple cameras? Render one scene one by one and set them together using some other program?

You can use batch rendering:

You can also do it via State Sets but it takes a little more setup.

Ok, I used batch render once and it worked fine. Then I worked a little bit more with my project and I want to render again. But when I use Batch render and start to render, it renders half of the first frame then it stops and get: "Application error: An error has occurred and the application will now close. Do you want to attempt to save a copy of the current scene?" Then 3ds max closes.
If I use render setup it works fine and I can render one scene at the time.
I can't understand witch settings might be wrong...
Hope you can help me with this, thanks.
