View Full Version : Orbiting Letters Got the Jumps

I have a slogan that is a series of words arranged in a circle that rotates so that you can read one side of the circle as it passes to the front. I set the rotation to 360 degrees over the length of the animation. In LW the motion appears fine in looping mode - just what I want, a continuous rotating motion.

But when rendered out to RTV, something happens at the point where the motion is supposed to repeat smoothly, there's a big jump in the position of the letters. I was hoping I could make a seamless animation of any length by making several copies of the single animation and placing them side by side in TED as needed. Any thoughts?

Could it be a frame rate thing?

Does it jump if you render to another format? Did you rendered to frames before making the rtv?

Well this is embarrassing...

The patch changed preferences back to 1 second offest. Which has a big impact on a 6 second animation.

I'm gonna start placing my new posts in a holding bin before actually posting, seems like the act of formulating the question tickles the brain into the answer.
