I had an animation that RAN beautifully, ran a test sample for the client and they LOVED the result ! Client added a couple of SMALL requests, went back to my model, and for some UNKNOWN REASON, the “Turbulence” displacement had lost its settings, and the few small changes I made to 2 items animating in the assembly and I’m at 3 - 5 M.I.N.U.T.E.S between keystrokes, and where I WAS scrubbing for my checks WITH FANTASTIC success, I am now at 3 - 5 MINUTES clicking from one keyframe to the next.
I’m gonna guess that SOMETHING wasn’t saved during the last file-save and this current re-start. And THAT doesn’t EVEN deal with the 3-5 M.I.N.U.T.E.S between keystrokes, repopulating the DISPLACEMENT settings in my Turbulence. I’m guessing that keeping the settings isn’t a default setting [ :=(( ] (NO excuse for THAT), but I’ll post a request for a find for that arcane non-default setting NOT included in the sample “How-2” instruction provided on the page for animating Waves and Turbulence …
What WAS running FAST and CLEAN is now SLOGGING, and OF COURSE I’m slamming another DEADLINE - AGAIN.
I’m wondering if there’s a command to run a full re-calc on the current animation settings as they stand (sort of like a “regen” which would re-calc EVERYTHING and put things back in order so we could move on, in the OLD ACAD days.
ANYBODY got ANYTHING ? Hunting in the dark here.
