The message box of exporting WAV stuck on saying 0% before finishing

It makes me feel the exporting aren't undergoing at all (see a few comments below when the question I feedbacked was still "Exporting WAV don't work")... When I cancel it it says "Cannot write into..."


Severity S1 - Blocker S3 - Major

Do you mean using File / Export? Do other formats (eg, MP3, MIDI) work? Please attach the score you are having trouble with. Also let us know if you are using any non-default soundfonts.

Status active needs info

Could be a problem with the soundfont then. But even though it fails with whatever scores you have tried, it might be they all have something in common. So again, please attach a sample score and link to the soundfont so we can investigate and please leave the status of this issue as "needs info". When someone on the development team is able to reproduce the problem, we will set the status to active.

I understand that, but I don't think before you fix the infinite processing bug I can attach the score here because people can then use it to... You know what can happen. That score means a lot to me. I totally want to attach it but let's wait until the score can be successfully published. :) I'm sorry for that.that.

Actually, I don't know what can happen. or more particularly, I know what I assume you are afraid of won't happen. No one is going to try to steal your work if you post it here; this is only seen by developers and people searching for info on bugs. And even if someone tried, by posting it here, you will have proven you had it first and would be guaranteed to win a copyright case.

Anyhow, since you say it happens with other scores, just post one of those.

Papelmedia GM 2007:…

Actually I don't think it's a problem of the soundfont because WAV exporting works fine with it in 2.3.2.

And the first attachment is one of my old scores which have been published, and transferred to 3.0-dev version.
Also I tried creating a score (the second attachment) directly from 3.0-dev, and it didn't work as well. I mean, if the score is short then it DID export something, but it cannot be played by my computer.

yes, as far as I can tell
OS: Windows 7 SP 1 (6.1), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 3.0.0., revision: c63d1c4 (latest development build)

Now trying in the Beta too...

And works.

Title Cannot write into WAV audios The message box of exporting WAV stuck on saying 0% before finishing
Severity S3 - Major S4 - Minor

Yeap... My bad. I didn't wait very long. Now that I do, the audio is successfully exported.
So... maybe this has become a minor bug... the message box always says 0% before finishing.

Priority P2 - Medium P0 - Critical
Severity S4 - Minor S3 - Major

There are several requests via feedback form:
"I wrote a few bar in MuScore3 ... cannot export to .wav files. When I open the file in the processor, there is a flatline"
"Its a great improvement compared to musescore 2 but I can't export in WAV files."

I don't know neither the particular scenario nor the score, unfortunately.
