    (edited)

    See LW docs here for much more readable, clear explanation (with examples) for those parameters' meaning than my own.

    More details needed:

    1. Which LW version/revision?

    2. Are you saving / loading on same version+revision of LW?

    3. Is character anim being originally imported from FBX or any other "extra...

    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...

    Ugh, that's disappointing. It's basically saying that LW2020 (really, LW2018+) aren't suitable for rendering many types of space shots, which were a long-time "bread and butter" VFX use case for...

    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).

    Agreed, seems the likely answer. Something was blocking localization lookup (likely config corruption), so it showed you the raw IDs.
