Save animation is very slow

Hello, I am using Paraview 5.12.0. When I save an animation as a .avi file by doing File → Save animation, it takes forever, it is stuck at the window attached. How may I get around this ?

Thank you

Have you tried earlier version of paraview?

Which version do you suggest ?

5.11 or 5.10 should be fine.

If it’s still slow, then something happened in 5.12, otherwise it was always slow.

Nonetheless, I would appreciate sending me a dataset along with a state file to take a look.
