Default Playblast error

whenever i playblast, it freezes and stops early.

if i have a 23 frame walkcycle, it stops at 18(which is a big problem.

and if i playblast a blank screen for 500 frames it frezes at 423!

any suggestions?

p/s: it is set to play the whole timeline

Might you be running out of RAM or Paging File (PF) memory?

To check, simply repeat what you have been doing and then while playblasting open up the Windows Task Manager (ctrl + alt + del) to monitor your system's resources. In the Task Manager head over to the "Performance" tab. RAM usage is listed under the heading Physical Memory. Also keep an eye on the PF usage.
