Won’t stop animation render in progress

Total Posts: 1

I started rendering an animation with a lot of scenes without realizing how long it would take. I exited the render after a few hours and reduced the animation to just 2 scenes. When I start to render again, the previous one starts back up where it left off. I’ve tried shutting down the program and restarting. I also tried Stop Render from the plug-in menu but it has no effect.

I need it to stop the previous rendering completely so the newest one can start. Is there something I’m missing?

If Shaderlight sees the individual rendered frames already present in the output folder, it will skip those frames – this is to avoid having to redo work in the event of a crash or accidental shutdown.

You can delete the images from the output folder to force Shaderlight to start from the beginning again.

I hope that helps,
