I have a question about location where finished rendered animation saves..

I have started rendering on one computer where I have specified the path to save folder. BUT I have now continued the rendering on a new computer where i have stopped on previous computer.

However, I forgot to change the save location. So the path in blend file does not exist on new computer. This path is non-exsistant.

Where did the rendering go now? (If it even did, or it just goes to nothing?) I tried C:/Windows/Temp, but no success there. (I'm on Win10 btw)

Thanks!

    $\begingroup$ Please provide a screen shot of your render settings, the output section is especially important. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It saved normally on the previous computer on the specified folder location. Problem is that I just opened the blend file on a new computer without changing the location. So this location folder location doesn't exist on this new computer. I'm just wondering where does the render go then? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ On my Windows setup the non-existent output folder was created automatically when rendering an animation. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I changed the output folder from "/tmp\" to "/tmpast\" and I ended up with C:\tmpast with the results. I also tried "/tmpast" and got no errors but could not find any rendered frames. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I found the render! It was in Recover (E:) drive. Note, I'm using Win10. Hope this help anyone in the future $\endgroup$

Still, when Blender can't find the directory you selected for the output it creates a new one starting from the local disk. Just copy the directory you erroneously wrote for the output and search for it in the folders.

I had for example one directory called home/blender/project/render, blender created a home directory in local disk, next program files and users
