    This is a problem ive always had with cinema 4d and never figured out the cause or fix

    Ive animated a shot and render a viewport render but discover there’s something that needs changing so i make the change and tell it to render the shot again but it says unable to write file

    yet sometimes it overwrites the file with no issue I’ve made no changes to the render settings and now if i try to delete the video file while Cinema is open it says it cant because the file is open in cinema yet its a video file I’m trying to delete not the 3d file and I’ve never had that issue with the earlier versions


    Any help would be great

    It seems like an issue with what you are viewing the render with. How do you view the animation after? Are you opening the video ( or sequence) in c4d to view it?

    Sometimes you cannot re-write a file if it’s open, sometimes even if the preview is open in explorer/finder.

    I closed the folder the video is in and ti worked which is odd as I’ve never had that issue before, thanks for the suggestion
