Hi again guys,
Further to my recent queries about the rendered image not being as expected,
and maybe there was some 'user error', but having had a bit more time to get
my head around it and do a lot more, I can still get unexpected results.
For instance, I have learned that, generally, I can simply load up an anim file
and then Calculate 3D to get a still shot from it. Then I can change it and send
it back to the anim if I wish etc. However, sometimes it is as if the param buffer is
not cleared and when I press Calculate 3D, a completely different image (even
to what is currently in the main program window!) is generated - like a variant on
the default 'blob' and if I 'Insert Parameter to Keyframe' (or even get param from
navi window) I still do not get what is in the main window but something odd like
perhaps from the clipboard. I've even had it put in the previous frame in an anim
series but not the one showing in the main window. SO I go past by another frame
and still don't get the one I want. Most Odd.
It's like a joke; now I have learned how to reduce the graininess on my 'mothership'
pic (in gallery) I can't get it back. I want frame 50 but it produces anything but(!)
The rest of the anim is just messy junk; a result of dabbling with parameters.
Maybe I didn't explain it well before but now I have had some time to play
around, this is not what usually happens and it's baffling me - and eating up valuable
creation time (or going out) (for 4 hours today Ive been produing tiny anims just to get
to the right place before increasing the size) but nothing works - unless perhaps a full
size render from the start? My brain literally hurts and I'm making all kinds of errors now.
Anway, if you view the attached anim file, if anyone can throw any light on the matter
i,e, why the shown image 50 will not render properly, it will be appreciated.
What you NEED to do is find a specific set of steps you can list - IN DETAIL - that Reproducibly create these errors.
Maybe get a screen capture program and show us a video of it happening.
Without a real world example, it's impossible to help you.
Nobody else has reported this, but that does not mean you are mistaken.
Please try to document this properly so we can help.
EDIT - I just tried your m3a file.
Every keyframe renders like it's thumbnail.
I don't see any problems there.
Could it be hardware issues? Can you test it on any other computer?
