    There's a problem, though, for many "anim-render" users upgrading from further back than LW2019 (like Erik) -- lacking LW2019 as a "stable fallback", there's a high chance they'll just wind up back...

    I'm pretty sure it can happen in any modern Hub-equipped LW. At least LW2015 offered working version of the file-event-based update system (unlike subsequent versions) so working without Hub was...

    Plus you're not painting with parametric materials (Substances), that's a non-trivial difference. Also, depending on where you might need to go with it afterwards (besides native LW), Substance...

    Sounds like a bug, might as well report it.

    There's no good reason why motion blur settings should impact keyframe generation at all.

    More details needed:

    1. Which LW version/revision?

    Now that C4D has proper camera dollies and cranes, scene setup actually feels more like Layout now, IMO, maybe even a bit more "real". Also, for animation, having full-on, proper NLA is incredibly...

    Is the noise also changing frame-to-frame (resulting in flicker)?

    If so, that may be unavoidable in LW2020, there are some known issues with anim frame-to-frame instability.

    Nah, the gizmos aren't quite right, some non-LW-looking null shapes, and there's a few realtime measure things that don't look like LW either (f.e. their lack of measure units).
