Output panel only contains option for directory, other options missing

The output panel only contains an option for setting the desired directory, all other options, such as the image format, color depth and compression are missing (also see attached screenshot). Can someone please tell me how to solve this? Thanks!

I'm using the latest version on Mac OS X 10.11.6.

Ouch.

Ouch.

Thanks for the report. There is unfortunately little that we can do here, I don't have a Mac. And so i can't fix anything Mac related. I am completely bound to Blender here.

Just curious, does Blender show the same problem?

Could you also please open the console and have a look if there is a warning? The console can be found in the Windows menu, Toggle System Console.

Thank you for your swift

Thank you for your swift reply. I can't find a Windows menu, only two Window menus, but both of them do not contain a Toggle System Console option. I did, however, notice a large number of warnings when I switched to the Scripting layout, please see attached screenshot,

And the Output panel in Blender doesn't show the same problem on my computer.

Have you tested this out with

Have you tested this out with the Dev build? I remember a fix that was implemented for 0.9.5 that fixed some output panel errors for Windows, I wonder if there is a correlation?

One of my computers, the mac laptop, is being repaired at the moment, so will be in a month or two when I get it back to test.

Isn't the developer build only available for Windows or am I missing something?

Oh right... maybe trying a previous build of Mac like 0.9.3 or 0.9.2 to see if the issue is still there might find more clues.

In the meantime I have found a workaround for exporting animations. I can still export all the stills and easily import them into Shotcut (an open source video editor) where I can set the desired framerate and export in a wide variety of video formats. But it would still be nice to be able to access the additional options in the Output panel Wink

Thanks for the console output

Thanks for the console output Smile

UI Flags is a Bforartists addon. It is required for the subtabs, and you should not disable it. When you disable it, or when it is missing, then you get the shown error. Same counts for the Toolbar Settings Bforartists.

Could you please check in the User preferences if the addon(s) exists and is/are enabled?

Ui Flags wasn't enabled for

Ui Flags wasn't enabled for some reason (and I'm pretty sure I haven't disabled it myself), so I've enabled it, restarted Bforartists and the additional options in the Output panel were back. Thank you both very much, I highly appreciate it!

When I search for bforartists

When I search for bforartists in the Add-ons panel of the preferences, I get 5 results instead of your 3. The additional 2 are Mesh: LoopTools and Mesh: tinyCad Mesh tools. Should I enable them?

And I've noticed a lot more options in the Render tab since I've enabled UI Flags. It's as if a whole new world with even more choices has opened up Wink

No, you don't have to enable them, except when they are useful to you. That's just two Blender addons that we have fixed to get it working in Bforartists. The orginial Blender versions of those addons refuses to work without those small modifications Smile

It is possible that something went wrong with compiling the Mac version. I cannot test it, i don't have a Mac. I will talk with our maintainer to make sure that the next Mac version of Bforartists has the addons really enabled. When the UI Flags addon is off, then you miss quite a few UI parts. It is broken in this state.

Ah, my fault. I always forget that Unixoids doesn't have the console window here Smile

You would need to start Bforartists from the console. Then you will get all errors there when there are some.

No problem. I just did and

No problem. I just did and didn't get any errors, so everything should be good, thanks. And if there are any Mac users wondering how to do this: you need to open Terminal (inside Applications/Utilities) and type open -a bforartists
