[CinCV TNG] Render error - file writing

Thanks, Einar, for your comment.
The $1 ("dollar"-"number one") comes from cinelerra cv manual, circa
2007, section 20.9.1, Rendering to mpeg2.
I don't know enough about unix/linux, and do not know how exactly pipes
work, so I just tried to copy things from the manual and follow
instructions. I thought the % sign at the end of Use Pipe and the $1 in
the shell script somehow referred to each other, as some sort of command
line argument. Anyway, I realize that a small typing mistake in command
line situations can cause all sorts of errors. My only contention is
that the same thing has worked before. But maybe I made an inadvertent
edit on it - I don't know. Your constructive help is appreciated.
