Unhappy playblast only goes 12frames! huh?

Hey everyone!
I seem to have a problem with my scene.

I modeled a whole house with furniture and everything. I then proceeded to add a camera for a fly-through. however whenever I go to playblast the camera, the playblast only loads about 10-12 frames and then it stops. Doesn't matter how I have the playblast time settings, it only produces that many frames and then the rest of my time is just the last frame repeated.

However in a new scene the playblast will work fine for any length of time. just that scene with the house I'm using I have problems. Does anyone know if there might be anything in my scene that might cause this problem?

whichever camera I use I have this problem. even creating new ones.
I'm using Maya 6.0 on winXP

thanks alot for your help!

Frederic.

you aren't minimizing maya or anything right? I think that will interrupt it.

oh no I don't touch anything, just click on playblast and let it go. just goes 10-12 frames and that's it.
but if I make a new scene I can playblast longer.

could there be something in my scene limiting the playblast engine?

Does playblest get limited with available ram at all??

If your low on ram this might be it?? Someone else may know a lot better than me.
