My setup i5 2500K processor @ 3.3 GHz and 24GB ram. Using Blender v2.79b

I have rendered out a set of 11 frames in OpenEXR and OpenEXR Multilayer format. Each set is produced from rendering a 3 layer blender file. Using an image node, set to image sequence (as below) these 11 files are connected to a composite node with the output set to produce .png files.

enter image description here

In both file types, the image node only processes the first file and produces blank files for the other 10, with the multilayer file format producing pink output .png files and the Open EXR files being black .png files.

I've read elsewhere that the pink colour is produced because there's no image there. I've picked up the images individually one by one in the image node, and it displays the image content of the file perfectly.

Why can't the image node process every file in the image sequence using the Animation button?

Can I have some help on this, I have an animation of 530 frames to composite and doing them one by one rather wastes my processor!

  • $\begingroup$ Mixing standart EXR + multilayer EXR in one sequence is a deadend. If you need additional passes besides Z-depth then stick with multilayer for whole animation. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry I think you misunderstood what I've being doing, I'm not mixing them, I just tried each type as I couldn't get either one of them to work, and I'm not using any passes, just trying to get from .exr to a .png $\endgroup$ Nov 26, 2018 at 18:50
  • $\begingroup$ Can you share a stripped file? No need to attach textures, you can even replace your objects with simple cubes, just leave renderlayer setup untouched. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Not sure what you mean here, need a bit of guidance, is the 'stripped file' one of my rendered .exr types, or are you speaking of my starting blender file? $\endgroup$ Nov 26, 2018 at 19:21
  • $\begingroup$ Whole .blend file you are working with to blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com $\endgroup$
