Nodebox 3.0.42 no longer exports movies

I am running NodeBox on Mac Yosemite.

Just upgraded to 3.0.42. Everything seemed fine until I tried exporting a movie (mp4). The export looked OK and ended without any error messages, but no file was ever created.

I tried multiple times with different files and movie settings and searched hard drive just in case it was hiding somewhere. I verified that the previous version worked with my current setup. Unfortunately I can't go back; I already modified my project using 3.0.42 and now nothing earlier will open it.



P.S. I attended OpenVis 2014 and just re-watched your talk. Great stuff! Keep up the good work.

    Update: I tried this on another Mac running Mavericks and on a PC running Windows 7.

    3.0.42 worked fine on the Windows PC, but had the same problem on the Mavericks Mac. So it looks like this is a problem on the Mac for both Mavericks and Yosemite.

    Can someone please confirm?

    Any estimates on when a patch might be available? Failing that, is there a trick that would allow me to open my current project using the previous version of NodeBox?

    We've fixed it, it's just a matter of getting a release out of the door. It will arrive shortly. Unfortunately no easy workarounds in the meanwhile.

    3.0.43 does indeed fix the problem. I'm now able to produce movies on my Mac.

    Thank you!
