Here is the code:
import bpy import csv import sys csv_path = sys.argv file = open(csv_path) reader = csv.reader(file) header = next(reader) # 1st line is header data = [ ] for row in reader: name0 = row name1 = row pathout = 'test-videos/' + row + '.m4v' s = bpy.context.scene f = s.objects['FirstName'] f.data.body = name0 f1 = s.objects['FirstName01'] f1.data.body = name1+'?' bpy.context.scene.render.filepath = pathout bpy.ops.render.render(animation=True) bpy.ops.wm.quit_blender()
And here is the error message:
Read blend: /PI-SAT/proj001/proj001-master.blend Traceback (most recent call last): File "/PI-SAT/proj001/proj001master.py", line 9, in <module> header = next(reader) # 1st line is header File"/Applications/Blender/blender.app/Contents/Resources/2.79/python/ lib/python3.5/codecs.py", line 321, in decode (result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final) UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xef in position 23: invalid continuation byte Error: File format is not supported in file '/PI-SAT/proj001/test.csv' ... opened default scene instead; saving will write to /PISAT/proj001/test.csv
I have read the file with a different script using the exact same code as in lines 2 - 15 and then printing the names and pathout. Running the script from the command line, not from within Blender, it works perfectly.
I have also run the part of the script within the for loop outside of the loop as a script from the command line and it works perfectly.
What am I missing about the CSV file? I created it in Excel on my Mac; is that a problem?
