How to output the movie from Peach project files?

Postby loveheaven » Sat Jun 11, 2011 10:40 pm

Guys,
I am a newbie. I downloaded the Peatch project files. I am using windows XP and blender 2.49b on my laptop.
I could open the project file --production\scenes\01_intro\01.blend. Then I closed the blender and used such command line "blender.exe -b c:\production\scenes\01_intro\01.blender -s 001 -e 005 -F JPEG -x 1" to output the movie. But the command output was very,very slow and at last blender got crashed. I got nothing.
So I have two questions:
1. Is it possible to ouput the movie on windows XP from Peach project files?
2. How to do it?
Thank you very much!
Below is the output
----------------------------------
E:\TDDOWNLOAD\blender-2.49b-windows>blender.exe -b c:\production\scenes\01_intro

General advice:

1) multiple posts get deleted, not answered faster.

2) You usually need to run the version of Blender that came with the project files. Blender movie projects usually use a patched version of Blender. (this is one way new features from the projects get into the next Blender)

3) The Blender movies are usually rendered on 64 bit systems because they can access extra memory a 32 bit system cannot. I am guessing you are running out of memory.
