Check your timeline at the bottom. I bet it says 24 and 48... Change these to match and set them to the required number of frames for your animation.

Change the -1 to 0. It looks like it might be only running from -1 to 0 and stopping.

Also check the playbalsty settings themselves

In the playblast options please check that you have it set to time slider and not Start/End.

Beyond that I dont really know why its only recording 24 frames

well it looks like your time slider only contains 10 frames, and that's all it's gonna playblast. increase the number of frames showing in your time slider at once, and then you'll see that the playblast gets longer and longer the more frames you add.

whoops. being at work, i don't have access to maya (*sob*), so i was reading that as being his start and end frames inside the time slider. (i mean how often do you look at the playblast options window, anyway? )
