Error converting file path to file spec -43
Using jit.qt.movie with movie files I keep encountering this error when trying to read them.
Any ideas why this is happening?
Error -43 means File not Found. So you probably provided a bad file path. Could you post an example?
Also getting this error, did you find out what caused it?
jit.qt.movie can only read movies from the Max folder on the labtop, otherwise this error comes up.
Adding new file path in Files preferences doesn’t help.
Working with Max 5 on a Mac
make sure you’re using the latest max version.
otherwise, please provide a simple patch demonstrating the problem and relevant system specs.
I found that it has to do with filename & path.
First, it seems that the path can’t be too long. Also, after discussing with a friend, that the filename should exclude (), , ;, etc. So instead always use _ and keep it simple. Seemed to work for me after those changes.
Indeed. Always use names containing only letters, numbers, underscorer (_) or hyphens (-).
Also keep this in mind for folders or hard disc name.
When in doubt of the correct path you could always use something like this :
