Can't actually create a video

I've tried multiple mixes and as soon as the "Creating Video" bar gets to 80% it simply freezes. I've left it for hours and nothing happens.

I tried mixing:
- Kick Max, Kick Punch and Crunch, and Supersets - 56:18 min.
- Kick Max, Kick Punch and Crunch, and Cardio Core Circuit - 53:05 min.
- Cardio Core Circuit (by itself, just shortening it) - 35 min.
- Supersets (by itself, just shortening it) - 16 min.

I've had these videos downloaded for months and have done each of the workouts by themselves, so I know they are fully downloaded and that they run fine on their own.

It doesn't make sense that I can't simply shorten a workout to 16 minutes without even mixing it with another workout.

I realize that it is normal for the "Creating Video" bar to stay at 80% for a while, but 6 hours seems like way too long.

At this point, I have been unable to make a single mixed video using the WB.

Any suggestions?



I am now in the same boat. I tried to create my ultimate legs workout with Gym Style Legs and Legs and Glutes about 4 different times and waited 4 hours the last time during the creating and it sits at 80 percent every time. I was successful with two video creations yesterday morning and both were right under an hour and they created in less than 10 mins.

I would like you to try the following process if you are running Windows to see if it solves your problems. (If you are running the Workout Blender on Mac let us know.) It is not difficult but please don't attempt it if you do not feel confident. Please let us know if it solves your problem with the video creation getting stuck at 80%.

You will have to re-import your videos and re-create your workouts since this resets your Workout Blender, but since it is not working now this shouldn't make much of a difference. This process is only necessary once.

1. Exit the Workout Blender, then open your Control Panels and choose "View by: Small Icons" in the upper right corner.

2. Click to open "Folder Options"

3. Click on the "View" tab at the top of the Folder Options window that opens.

4. Under "Hidden files and folders" in the list of Advanced Settings that appears, click on "Show hidden files, folders, and drives", then click "Apply" at the bottom of the window.

5. Leave the window open since you will need to reverse this process in a minute.

6. Navigate to the folder: "Your Hard Drive" > Users > "Your User Name" > AppData > Roaming and drag the folder "Cathe" into the Recycle Bin and you can close all the folders you opened.

7. Go back to the "Folder Options" window and check "Don't show hidden files, folders, or drives", click "Apply" and close the window. You can also close your Control Panels.

8. Restart your computer, then when it is done restarting launch Workout Blender and attempt to create a new video.

Please let us know your results.
