I use LW to do long scenes and i am currently limited to 32xxxx frames in a scene. Is there any way to increase maximum number of frames. Ideally i would like to be able to render out 1hr at 25 or 30fps so i am looking at at least 108,000 frames. Others have suggested that i do shorter renders and piece together. I personally prefer long renders as this enables me to keep everything perfectly consistent when creating massive works.

All help on this appreciated.

Regards
Chris

do you realize what that means????
at;
1 sec per frame=60 hrs
1 min per frame=1800 hrs=75 days
5 min per frame=9000 hrs=375 days

unless you have a renderfarm.....do smaller
you may need compy for something else at day 58 or 244, then your s*it out of luck.

Hey bud,
Haven't heard from you in awhile.
Took me awhile to figure out your math. I guess I must be running on fumes. :D
Anyways, aquapan,
32767 frames is only the maximum that can be displayed on the timeline at once. You can hold down the alt key and drag the time line to change the values on both ends.
Have fun, good nite, aye's going to bedz.

Thanks Silk....

Muchly appreciated.

And for the record I do have a farm of 5 - 7 comps depending on how many i can get my hands on.

I render artworks.... one of which can be sampled here:

( about 30 mb quicktime (3 mins))

Most of my works are looooooooooong evolving things.

One of which was shown at Mindstates earlier this year behind a talk by a friend Mark Pesce.

Peace
