Choreography rendering issue

Recommended Posts

I am working on an animation for the Mini-Movie Contest. I have a single choreography. It's length was about 01:18:00 (almost 80 seconds) for the longest time.

 

Then I added another 15 or so seconds, so it's length is 01:34:00 (94 seconds). Now when I go to render the choreography, I enter 01:34:00 for the end of the range, then click render. Immediately I notice that the start and end frames add up to 2400. Divide by 30 for frames/second, and I get only 80 seconds. I am unable to figure out how to render the last 14 seconds into the movie. I've switched it between QuickTime and AVI, with no improvement.

 

Is this something I'm doing wrong, or something that should be reported?

Try looking in your options (Under the Units tab?) to see if your chor is set to 24fps or 30fps.....

Looks like you did not adjust the choreography length. Look at the choreography properties.

Choreography length:

1:34:00

 

Play range:

00:00:00 to 01:34:00

 

Options:

30 fps

 

It's funny, the second the render window comes up, the "Frames Rendered" and the "Frames Left" add up to 2400.

 

If I create a new choreography of length 01:34:00, it goes to 2820.

 

Hmmm ...

 

Aha! Choreography -> Shortcut to Camera1, properties

Output Options -> Range -> End = 1:20:00

 

Looks like that was it! I changed it to 1:34:00 and all was well in the world.

 

Thanks for the ideas!

The render properties should over-ride the camera properties....I think. There's a similar report about this on AM:Reports.

Hey Let us see your mini movie!

 

I will be posting it for the Mini Movie Contest #4, just a few weeks away. I have a project page for friends and family, but I couldn't afford the bandwidth to tell everyone where it's at.
