I started to render an animation, and part way through it I changed the save location thinking that it was one big file and would save there after. Little did I know that its actually saving every frame, so now I'm missing the ones that were in the default folder. Is there a specific place I can go to get these files or are they gone?

  • $\begingroup$ Fire up a new Blender instance on it's own, take a look at it's output folder. That's possibly where your previously rendered frames/files are. If you're wanting just a single file containing all frames, try the H264 AVI format in the output tab. Have a peek in the "Encoding" tab as well. Make sure they're set to what you want. $\endgroup$ – Edgel3D Jan 7 '17 at 0:26

I was able to find the missing frames by starting a new instance of blender (has to be new project) and looking at the default save location. For me, the default save file was C:/tmp/
