I'm trying to create an animation with paraFoam (the one delivered with OF 1.2). When I try to save the animation and PF tries to save the first frame I get a message box saying:

"There is insufficient disk space to save the images for this animation. The file(s) already written will be deleted"

The problem is: There is enough disk-space (and I've tried various disks). So I think paraFoam has a different problem but doesn't quite know how to express itself. My suspicion is fuelled by this line from the Error-log:

"There was a VTK Error in file: ../../../../../paraview-2.2.0/Servers/ServerManager/vtkSMAnimationSceneProxy.cxx (173) Incosistent state. Save aborted."

Has anyone had this problem before and could she tell me how to work around (if possible)?


PS: same thing happens when I try to use paraview

Hi Bernard,

Here is the discussion

Hi Bernhard,

I am using ParaView 2.4.2 and I am able to create an animation with multiple jpegs or a single mpeg2 file without a problem. There must be a problem with that specific version of ParaView.
