i'm using solidworks 2011 SP2.0 and when a make a sheduled render,it doesn't save the result. How do i make it save the result? Or is this a bug?
Did you turn the Task Scheduler on after you scheduled the render?
yes i did, otherwise it doesn't start. it shows the command window and a lot of "ok!" but doesn't produce a png.
In PhotoView Options did you set your default image output to png? By default I believe it set to jpg.
i put it on PNG. It's doesn't save anything at all..
I am having this same problem. I scheduled 4 renders last night and I had nothing in the output folder... I really haven't like the change from the 2010 PV360.
Same here. Just tried to shedule a rendering and save as jpg. Says it has completed etc but cant find the image anywhere???
Ok. So this isn't just me slamming my head into my desk!
I have the same problem too, the task seems to be complete, but no image saved. I tried with a small assembly to test it. I follow the instruction and nothing works, with Task Manager open, with or without SW 2011 open, in jpg or png. I also tried with SW 2012 SP0, with no success. This is really disapointing.
I know this thread is ancient history, but did this ever get resolved? I'm having the exact same issue in SW 2012, except I'm trying to save JPGs. It doesn't matter whether I'm trying to save to a local folder or the network. Seems like something that would have been fixed by now.
This thread may help.
Thanks for the reply. I hadn't seen this more recent thread; it looks like the OP's second problem is identical to mine, but like all the other threads I've seen on this, it hasn't been resolved. Wondering what seemingly uncommon variable produces this problem.
Has anyone found a solution yet? I'm having a similar issue with scheduling PhotoView 360.
I'm using SW 2011 - SP 0.0. I can render large images, 3300x2550, at max setting with no problem. I can even schedule a render and save it as a .PNG. The problem arises when I click the "Save alpha image" in the render dialogue box. The scheduler runs, PV 360 renders, but there is not file in the folder location.
As a test I scheduled two renderings of the same large assembly, 2200+ components. The image size was reduced 600x430 to provide quicker render times. The first render was scheduled without an alpha channel. The second render was scheduled to follow the first and included an alpha channel. Both were .PNG files. I made sure to name the files differently.
The result was that the file with the alpha channel option did not render while the file without the alpha channel did.
Does anyone have any ideas or know of a solution? Does the SP 1.0 service pack correct this issue for SW 2011?
Matt, that's good info. I tested a batch of renderings without attempting to save the alpha channel and they rendered fine, so it looks like alpha channel is an important variable. I'd previously started a new thread on this topic and I'm going to move your post into it to keep all the info together.
