One minute limit on videos

I can't export videos longer than one minute in SFM with out it missing half the video at best. I can if I use MOV instead of AVI. Honestly, I could just use MOV and add more llights (MOV is darker for some reason), but I prefer to use AVI.

Longer videos can grow very large in file size. Make sure you have enough disk space to export.

I have 472 GB of free space on my hard drive. Is that not enough space, or are we talking about some thing else like processing power. I'm not the most tech savvy person in the world, so I can't guarantee I'll understand every thing you are saying.

Also, the video was only two minutes long; not like thirty minutes.

That should be more than enough disk space, so that's probably not why the video is cutting off then. Make sure that, when exporting your movie, you have selected "Sequence" and not "Custom" or "Selected Shots" - that way it should export everything.

I changed it from "uncompressed" to "cinepak" that seems to work for now. Thanks for the help.
