When I record an animation in .avi using the Drive Constraint command here's what pops :
The codec you selected to compress this AVI video stream cannot handle the current screen color depth and/or the graphics frame size. Please try another codec.
Then I press OK and it records but the AVI file is empty and no video is watchable.
What can I do?
I'm using Autodesk Inventor 2012 ans a windows 7 64bit brand new computer with Nvidia graphic card.
Similar issue here, with the occasional twist that often the 'record' button does not stay depressed. After loading the TSCC codec from Techsmith I can now get it to act like it's recording (same behavior in Drive Constraint and animations in .ipn files) while the animation runs, but afterwards I get a 0 Byte file and of course I can't watch it, either.
Have you had any luck finding a fix? I'm also on a fairly new machine with Win7/64. I have made movies on this machine before, but now I just get these empty avi and wmv files.
Prior to using the "Drive Constraint" option to record a .WMV or .AVI animation, be sure that your AntiVirus is disabled. I've seen a few cases recently where the movie file either fails to generate or is created and saved with 0KBs after attempting to save the "Drive Constraint" animation. Upon disabling AV, the animation file is then created and saved as expected.
..., be sure that your AntiVirus is disabled....
i wish it was that easy
You should see the reaction when someone says to the IT dept ..."ok i just need to disable the anti-virus for a little while"
Here is the link to the hotfix for this issue:
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
