Hey there Phrosting,

there are a couple of ways....

1: Make your time slider only show the time range you want by adjusting the start and end frame numbers.


2: Hold shift and left click the time slider where you want the playblast to start and, keeping shift down, drag the cursor to where you want the playblast to end. The selected area will be highlighted in red.

Hope that helps,

Hi all,
I have a problem with playblast associated with playing back according to the time slider. Playblast respects the chosen animation frames of the time slider but the audio that accompanys the .iff file always starts on frame 1 irregardless of where the time slider is.

Any ideas on why it does that or how to 'fix' it?
