Hi Psychopy Community,
Repost from earlier thread as some things have changed and I want to make sure this error and any solution is easy for others to find. I’m trying to create a MovieStim3 object, I’m getting an error that I’m not sure how to resolve, although now I’m not sure if I need to worry about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Potentially useful information about my setup:
- Using psychopy standalone version 1.90.2, python 3
- Running on Windows 10 laptop
- Dual monitor setup, second monitor UHD
When I try to create a MovieStim3 object. I get a “Fatal Python error” message.
What has changed:
I’ve been trying different things to figure out what is going on, and in particular I tried to make a short run of two movies in Builder view. Surprisingly, it ran, but gave me the same error after the movies finished playing. What is going on here? Should I be worried about this “fatal error”?
I’m using moviepy as the backend in Builder (avbin did not play the movies at all and openCV did not properly sync sound and image and dropped many frames). The error seems to occur in a moviepy deconstructor.
Minimal (Non)Working Example:
import psychopy psychopy.useVersion('latest') from psychopy import monitors, visual, core expMonitor = monitors.Monitor('subjectMonitor') SCREEN_SIZE = (3840,2160) window2use = visual.Window( SCREEN_SIZE, fullscr=True, screen=1, monitor=expMonitor, color=[0,0,0], colorSpace='rgb') movieFullPath = r'C:\path\to\movies\testmovie.mp4' thisMovie = visual.MovieStim3(win=window2use, name='testmovie', noAudio = False, filename = movieFullPath) window2use.close() core.quit()
