    Hey guys long time no post, but I’m back with hopefully a simple question that’s been bugging me on some projects lately.

    In one of my projects I que’d 10 comps of lower thirds to render, and selected the output module on them all, and set the output folder. All pretty standard stuff. Except for a bunch (but not all) of them it created folders in that folder named ” _Mov.mov” When I double check the output setting the “Create sub folder” checkbox is unchecked. Any ideas how to stop this behavior?

    Thanks in advance.

    I’ve run into this before, too. I don’t recall exactly, but I think that it may have been caused by having an invalid render location set.

    Before rendering, select all your output modules, and choose Output To: Comp Name to reset the naming.

    Thanks for you reply Walter, I believe you’re correct about the cause. I’m not sure why it invalidates though. I don’t remember ever having this issue on older versions. I have comp name set as the default for the Output To: but I have noticed sometimes it puts the entire destination path as the name at first, and I have manually set it back to Comp Name.
