90 frames = 88 images ?
« on: September 12, 2017, 07:02:03 am »
Hi I am animating for first time. I am rendering 90 frames ( specified in the render dialog box / animation).
First thing I encounter strange its that I animated a 3 second video 30fps. I do not understand why in the dialog box the
extension of the project is 91 frames and last 3.033 secs. In any case I specified that I want only 90 frames, turning the length to 3 secs automatically. I pressed 'render' and I got 88 files in my folder.

Mmm do anyone of you experienced this?

Thanks a lot!!!

ok, I am sorry I have 89 files. So the one I need the number '90' comes in keyshot as 91 ? and adds 033 secs?


I am sure I am wrong in my understanding and its nothing wrong with KS

Hi zooropa.

To get rid of the 'extra' frame you can hit the tiny gear and the animation toolbar and make sure that 'render last frame' is unchecked. See attached screenshot.

I think the rest of your confusion is due to a small inconsistency between the naming of the frames inside KeyShot and when rendered.
Inside KeyShot 'frame 1' is referred to as 'frame 1', but when rendered 'frame 1' is called 'frame 0'.

In your example the frame called '89' is actually the 90th frame.

Hope it helps to clear things up.
Best,
