Hello All,

When exporting scenes at time step interval, it is exporting as black images with nothing displaying in them.

I am also getting this error of : "ChoosePixelFormat failed"

Any solution to this ?

Thanks,
Yogesh

Are you rendering them on a machine with hardware graphics or using software rendering?

Thanks for the reply. I am not sure about rendering. I am just selecting the option which exports hardcopy of the scenes from the scene attributes properties.

Can I check if it is hardware or software rendering.

Regards

If you are using a Linux machine, add the command glxinfo to your run script and see what it outputs.


If you are windows you can right-click the scenes folder in the tree (I think, perhaps it's on any scene) and click test graphics, and it will display similar information in the output window.
