I’m having animation crashes as well.
To make things as simple as possible, I tried to follow the animation tutorial (starting from ctrl-space + Sphere) and then saving the animation.
If I choose “PNG” in the “files of type”, everything works well. However, when I choose “VFW AVI files (*.avi)” it crashes with any image resolution, background color and quality.
I also tried the “Ogg-Theora video file” and it works (producing the ogg file) but Windows does not seem to be able to read it.
I tried to delete the .ini file too (as suggested in another thread) but this was not helpful.
I attach the state file, ini file and also the trace file that I got by starting paraview with --log=c:\data\log.txt --verbosity=-2
Thanks very much for your help!
