Can't find files after exporting

Recommended Posts

So, I edited 2 videos and sent them to render at the same time. Since now, I've done this and there were no problems. Now, after the render is complete, I can't find the exported file. It says that it finished rendering, and that's it. No file. I've searched my PC but couldn't find the files anywhere. Can anyone help me?

The export path, unless you changed it, should be something along these lines...

C:\Users\your_name\downloads\Untitled.mp4

Look for it there.  Or try a search for *.mp4 or other file type that was exported.

Odd.  You hint that you have exported video files in the past - with no issues.

What happens if you again export this file, paying close attention to whether it completes in the usual way?

If it fails, and the project isn't huge, please click FILE|SAVE AS PORTABLE PROJECT and upload to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or the like.

Make it public and link it here.  Someone will attempt to duplicate your (non) result.

What if I upload it directly to my channel. (It finishes with no errors, but I still can't find them). Will it work?

If your video upload is in a format YouTube accepts it should work.  Try the direct export and report back.

So, I uploaded it in .mp4 format, and it still didn't work. Didn't show up anywhere on my channel

Upload the elusive project and link it here, at suggested in the earlier post.  Someone will take a look.

What was the file path in fact?  i.e. When you exported to your PC what did you have entered into in the "Save to:" box as shown below. The text shown would be as Borate says and similar to that shown here...but you could have used the Browse button to navigate to any folder or drive.

Following the export did you get the following window?

Did your video...

1) Show in folder

2) Play in your PCs default player when you clicked "Play

If it did then you should be able to find it on your PC in the location you set up in the top screen image.

If you haven't changed anything since your failed export,  VP will send further exports to the same location. Just export a short clip or image with the same settings and note your "Save to:" entry.

Hello again. The path was simply my PC's videos file. I got it to work now, I don't know what happened then, but now it's normal. Thank you all for the support! ?
