Whenever I create a .avi file using Maya's "Playblast" feature, the animation never appears on the file when I play it. Instead, I just get a black screen that lasts for however many seconds the original animation was supposed to last.
The steps I followed are from "Introducing Autodesk Maya 2012":
- - Right-click the time slider, then select the "Playbast" option box
- - Set the format to avi
- - Set the display size to "From Window"
- - Set Scale to 1.0
- - Check the "Save to File" option, then give the playblast a name
- - Click the "Playblast" button
As said above, once I've saved the file to my computer and attempt to play it, I'm just seeing a black screen. Why is this?
