Hi, in my workflow I usually start compositing before my 3D renders are finished. Now in CS6 apparently when I preview a part of the sequence I get constant popups when a new frame is rendered saying the sequence has X missing frames (due 3D rendering on a farm some frames are rendered ahead of others).
I don't mind that AE checks wether there are new frames rendered and updates the length of the imported footage but it shouldnt halt my previews while trying to watch them.
Is there an option to turn this feature off somewhere ?
Not sure if there's a way to turn it off.
Here's what I would do:
Import a rendered frame and composite using just that one frame. Don't check "image sequence"
When your render's done, replace the footage with file, and then select your image sequence.
You could just create a dummy sequence and then let the renderer overwrite those dummy files? Not saying that you should have to do this, as AE's sequence handling indeed sucks big time in that regard, but it would be an appropriate workaround.
While it might be a workaround it's not usefull, I got a ton of filesequences rendering here and every move I make I get the popup. I cant just for the sake of it make x-amount of filesequences times the amount of passes, I'd have to hire an assistant just to do this due to the amount.
I want an option to not check updates.
