Using version 2.79 on Windows 10, whenever Blender uses ffmpeg with an avi-file as output (be it rendering an animation or creating proxies in the VSE), it immediately crashes.
I’m rendering to a Matroska file right now as a workaround, but I don’t think I can choose the container type for proxies, can I?
Either way, Blender shouldn’t crash, so something must be wrong.
I’m quite sure it did work a couple of weeks ago, and I don’t think I installed another program or anything since then, except for the Windows updates. Any idea what could be wrong?
Thanks in advance!
