Can't play large walkthrough AVI files

Recommended Posts

I have created a ~3000 frame walkthrough and Windows Media player cannot play it (it will play smaller files of at least 1400 frames).  So I am pretty sure it is a WMP thing.  Is there a program that can handle this, or convert to a different file type?

 

thanks

You might update your codec also.  I remember having a similar issue that was solved by doing that. I also changed the video format I saved to, so you have a few options.

It maybe a memory issue with WMP trying to load a file of that size , perhaps try a different Codec eg XVID or X264vfw, I found both made much smaller Files back in March in this thread.... VideoLan will play both if WMP doesn't, it is also a great free program.

I've heard about XVID and downloaded it but not sure how to get it to load into my options for a  walkthrough codec in the drop-down menu. Am I supposed to put it in a specific file or folder? Cause it ain't there...

It must be installed after downloading , not just downloaded..... then you should be able to change the Codec in Preferences>Render to XVID (or X264VFW if installed)

Mick, I figured it needed to be installed after downloading but I'm just not sure how or where I do the install part to get it to show up in my codec options. It is downloaded on to my computer now though... Actually, I think I remember downloading it and it may have had and install step and I did that but if it installed it just went somewhere on my computer. I watched a youtuber and he made it sound as if you download and install and it automatically will appear in your CA ready to be used. That did not happen for me, unfortunately. I need it spelled out for me step by step I guess.

      I am having issue with the built in VR viewer, the motion tracking is extremely jumpy and disorienting, It is totally useless for clients as motion sickness sets in with in seconds, I have had to use external programs and they are becoming an encumbering step to the process

      I am initiating a walkthrough  and all my Landscaping layers are not showing up. All the Layers are on in the plan view
      that I initiate it from but they are off in the walkthrough. What am I missing & how do I fix this?

      HI All
      In a video walkthrough (link below) the under cabinet lights are flickering.  These are simple point lights.  Any suggestions?

      Is there a way to add a bit of Raytrace get to a walkthrough video? I'm using x8. On HDP there was an option to set two levels of final rendering. 
       
      Is there a Raytrace walkthrough option on X10?
