Sketchup Animation .avi Export

The conversation here was suuuuper brief:

There was another on Sketchucation

Yeah, it’s cool, I ask similar questions of others. File location double and triple checked. It seems to work with a smaller file size (ie a shorter animation, or if I cancel this one after a couple hundred frames). The file extension was also populated by default.

At work I’m running Sketchup 2015, on Windows 7 64bit, i7 2.8(ish??) 8gb DDR3, Quadro FX 580 (512mb ram).

I also tried at home with my PC, to no avail. It has much beefier specs: Sketchup 2015 on Windows 10 (64 bit)
CPU: Xeon e3 1231 @ 3.4ghz
RAM: 16gb DDR3
GPU: GTX 970 4GB.

If this was a student project I’d be all for sharing, but unfortunately, it’s a medium scale commercial development. This deadline isn’t immediate, and this was more of a test run to make sure it works prior to investing my time in a full walkthrough.

I also tried with a simpler model (just made a similar length animation). It seems that everytime the ‘estimated size’ reaches approx 4000mb (I’m guessing 4096) it starts back at zero. Is there an artificial file size limit? (I’m also on NTFS so it’s not a formatting issue)
