Hi, I use nodebox 3 in my ubuntu 21.04 system.
I meet issue when exporting my work to movie.
I can see rendering process of each frames, but after it finish rendered I didn't see anything in my directory.
I've try export as svg in the same directory and it is working, but when it comes to movie it didn't work.

    This is a known problem which has been reported by others. In the last update, Frederik fixed this for Macs and PCs, but apparently not for Linux. I have added Frederik to this thread, but his time for Nodebox is limited.

    For now I'm afraid the only workaround is to use the Export Range feature to export each frame as a separate PNG and then use 3rd party software to convert those PNGs to a movie. The only other alternative is to get access to a Mac or PC.

    Sorry - I know it's frustrating.
