Does ffmpeg work on flipbook export in Houdini 19.5 Mac?

I can't seem to get it working despite it showing up fine in terminal.

In ENV variable I've added: FFMPEG_PATH = "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg"

Let me know if you got it working on Mac?

I think you need both FFmpeg and ImageMagick for it to work not sure though as I`m on linux.

Actually you should link it to $PATH and just the bin dir, and not the binary, think it’s the same for FFMPEG_PATH, so FFMPEG_PATH = "/usr/local/bin" according to the docs...
