So I'm using the Wolfram Cloud Development Platform to code in Mathematica and I'm trying to download an animation I made. I write Export["conic.avi", conic] and it outputs a result, but it doesn't appear anywhere in my cloud directory (neither in Home nor in Unnamed).

When using ExpandFileName["conic.avi"] I get /wolframcloud/userfiles/559/559cdf6e-bef7-4e97-a8cb-a9c45b4cf81c/conic.avi and using SystemOpen on that or on conic.avi sends me to a "Page not found" error.

Anyone knows a way to see where my animation is exported to? Or even to choose where to send it in the cloud?


  • $\begingroup$ In order to organize and keep track of things, I usually export to a specific CloudObject. So in your case, something akin to: Export[CloudObject[""Exports/conic.avi"], conic]. Now the avi should be in your Exports folder. $\endgroup$ – chuy Mar 26 '18 at 14:50

  • $\begingroup$ CloudExport[] should work as well. $\endgroup$ – brainjam Jun 25 at 17:31
