In spite this being a rather old thread, I thought I'd give my input since this problem just happened to me today.

I got this "Can't rename .tmp to final, Permission denied" today while trying to use the flipbook render and the write node.

My proyect included hd tifs both in sequence and stills and a quicktime mov, working in Windows 7, Nuke 6.3v4

This I tried:
- Delete Nuke cache - no solution
- Close and open Nuke - no solution
- Turn off and on the computer - no solution
- Move the whole proyect to a local drive (against keep working on the server) - no solution
- Open the proyect in another computer - no solution
- Delete the "appdata/local/temp/nuke" files - no solution
- Then a colleague suggested to convert the mov to a tif sequence - THERE IT IS!!

So, just wanted to post this in case someone else has a similar situation, I hope this helps!

if your QT mov file was also on the network/server then probaly somebody else had this file open so windows wasnt able to overwrite this file.

In my case, I was having my viewer connected to the writer node, so it was causing some kind of loop operation. It seems you can't view your writer output since it has to replace it with the render O_o

So the solution is quite obvious..., just pipe the viewer to the last node before the writer one and everything works again.

Hi !
I have a problem which looks like yours. When I put a Write node, I just can't choose any codec for a .mov. there is no option, when I change back to something else (example : dpx ou tiff), the application close.
when I write it as a .mov, it say the same lines as you can read at the beginning of this thread :
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

I deleted the temp file for nuke, I changed the output file, I disable UAC, but I still have the problem. Does someone else found another solution ?
