Tested again with 4.11.0 Preview 7 and I didn’t experience any crashes or hanging. It output all of my frames in my test scene. Will report back if there are any issues with my final scene which will be more complex. Thanks again!
EDIT: After further tests, I discovered that frames start to skip in the renders after 10 seconds or so. I need to create something longer and it seems it’s not possible with this tool. It’s impossible to render out different chunks of frames as the particles won’t match up. There’s also a huge seam where the left and right side of the frame meets, which I don’t know how to resolve. Hope somebody else has found a solution to these limitations.
EDIT_02: To minimize slowdown, if you turn off ‘Real Time’ in the viewport and change the lighting to ‘Unlit’, even if the capture textures are at 2K, it’s not too bad to navigate.
EDIT_03: I was able to export out footage over 20 seconds, just make sure a lot of other programs are closed and there is as much free RAM as possible. But particles still don’t draw on one side, which I believe is a limitation to Matinee’s ‘Save Movie’ function and not related to this tool.
