waw,

wookay so adding .exr at the end of the image file path/prefix seems to resolve the problem.
which is strange as the .exr is anyway added as you render a file (with exr dropdown menu selected to exr).
This might be because of azerty keyboard what you think ?
now, trying rendering frames here and there in timeline to see if it's still rendering okay/.

Hmm, but does it crash, or is it saving the PNG file without the frame number?

Thanks,

it works !
thanks for your help JuanJgon !

so to sum it up,

> don't put empty geo in your scene put a box and disable geo node visibility : it adds lots of errors in the log file + probably more troubles
> don't render png (anyway who does except me ! : it causes houdini to just crash
> add the file extension type in your rop parameters, like add ".exr" at the end of the name after the "$F4" if you render an exr seq :


Might be some stuff for you JuanJgon for future problem solving diagnostics.

Ok, time for rendering,

++

as for pngs, they crash the app, but exr don't.

Read my 2 previous posts, the case is resolved

i'm sorry i wrote a lot and keeping being track of where i am (in my investigations) is a bit confusing
but this post with those numerous replies kept me being aware of what i've done and what i had tried so far, what works and what's not.

Thanks a lot for your feedbacks JuanJgon,
given all your work in all those renderers and apps, it's good to have an eye on our problems.

Got a similar weird issue last week : not saving or "banded" files.
In this scenario : large resolution higher than 5K+pass+png.
Everything is ok with exr, kinda weird.
