Hey, any help with this would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
I’m doing an animation for work. I’ve been rending 5 scenes on 4 separate machines for more than a day now and guess what… Power Failure. 3 of the scenes had (thankfully) finished rendering, no problem there, but the last two, well… they were around 90% complete each. The battery backup on those systems failed: have I lost the render result? I was rendering to uncompressed (raw) avi.
I know when blender renders to .avi it appends the render result as it completes each frame. Is there a way to retreive those rendered frames? The .avi files won’t open in any player, and blender doesn’t open them, but there’s more than 24 hours worth of rendering in those frames! any way to get it back out?
I’ve started rendering again those two scenes from frame 1. But I’ve set the .avi files aside, hoping that someone has a great trick for me to save me 24+ hours wait time.
Thanks for any replies. My looming deadline thanks you too.
