I am using Blender's Video Sequence Editor and it won't let me render it. The error message...

Timebase 20999/500000 not supported by MPEG 4 standard, the maximum admitted value for the Timebase denominator is 65535

...keeps popping up. I don't know what to do. It also won't let me save it either. Here are some screenshots.

Frames Per Second

The output file format you've chosen, Xvid, does not support the frame rate you've chosen. Your error,

Timebase 20999/500000 not supported by MPEG 4 standard, the maximum admitted value for the Timebase denominator is 65535

basically says: your frame rate (5 frames per second with a framerate base of 0.210, totaling 23.81 fps) isn't compatible with your output file format.

How to fix

As far as I'm aware you can't fix it, you have to either change the fps or the output file format.

Happy Blendering!

Just curious: why do you need a video with exactly 23.81 fps?

You might need to export your animation as an image sequence, and later use some external video encoding software to create a video with that special frame rate.

I tried using a Quicktime with MPEG-4 codec and it worked.
