nukex6.2 64bit writing tga sequences crashes

hit render for any sequence recently and nuke will crash with this message:

message title:
Write1: Can't rename .tmp to final, Permission denied

message content:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "C:/Program Files/Nuke6.2v1/plugins\nukescripts\", line 8, in render_panel
return nukescripts.showRenderDialog(_list, exceptOnError)
File "C:/Program Files/Nuke6.2v1/plugins\nukescripts\", line 623, in showRenderDialog
File "C:/Program Files/Nuke6.2v1/plugins\nukescripts\", line 231, in run
nuke.executeMultiple(self._nodeSelection, frame_ranges, views, continueOnError = self._continueOnError.value())
RuntimeError: Write1: Can't rename .tmp to final, Permission denied

this seems to be happening more and more frequently. the only fix i've found so far is to create a new write node with new location and file name.

it leaves a temp file where the sequence stops rendering, but deleting this still causes the crash in the same place. Anyone else getting this? I 'mm wondering wether its windows7 and not nuke?

Well It Seems That It Is A Bug For Version 6.2, That Did Not Exist In 6.1.

So There's The Solution, Use An Earlier Verison.

Sadly it existed in all versions of Nuke. You've only just noticed it now.

When rendering, Nuke writes temp files and then changes them to the image file upon completion. Sometimes the operating system stuffs up and won't let you change the temp to an image. Delete all the temps and hit re-render.

Yes, thanks for that, i still recon win7 is having a hand in it.
strangely enough, even deleting the tmp file- it still crashes.

what is even stranger...i can read/write nukeX 64bit.

i thought quicktimes were a nono on 64bit windows?

Do you have things like search indexing and volume shadow copy disabled?

Also, as of 6.2v1, it's possible to read and write Quicktimes on 64 bit Windows.

Nope, it still occurs from time to time.

the best way i found was to tick the "render in background" box and do it that way, seems to thrown significantly less errors.

also, rendering to exrs instead seems to work.

good luck

Did you use name####.tga in the write node?
Do you run any other memory consuming app at the same time?

Hey guys!
I was having the exact same problem as joecoke69, trying to render a JPG sequence. It started to happen TODAY, yesterday was all fine.
I use the render in background, as he suggested, and also use the kyrgr suggestion of the NAME_####.jpg (i was using %04d) and now is rendering, a little bit slower, but rendering.
Donīt know what fixes the problem, though.
Is there a bugfix or something?

Hey there guys...
i thought i'd chime in and ressurect this thread, as i have stumbled upon this on a rather large project, had driven me close to insane, and looking up a solution online yielded absolutely no useful information, apart from a couple of hacks that did no work.
Enabling administrator permissions, logging in as admin, changing disk permissions etc, even reformatting and reinstalling the system did not fix this. It is a windows specific nuke bug (does not happen on linux or osx).
The only thing i have discovered that fixes this problem, is to close down nuke, remove its temporary folder completely (appdata/local/temp/nuke - on windows7), then restart the app.
Using clean buffers and disk cache does not fix it.
Afterwards all behaves as expected. Mind you, once the temp folder fills up, the problem might come up again, but at least this allows you to render sequences without the annoying "can't rename" crap popping up.
As a sidenote, what i did, was to create a simple batch file that would first remove the folder and all it's subfolders, and then start nuke. That way, everytime i run the app, i get a clean run. Downside is, if i have large trees, they need to recache, but at least now they render....

Thanks oktawu!
I will spread this temp folder delete method - it is the only answer I've found that actually works.
