Grab viewport preview animation repetedly writing the same frame


Has anyone else encountered this problem? Max 2019 but I recall maybe 2018 as well.

I am trying to grab a basic preview animation PNG sequence of the viewport so I can out together an animatic… but all that is happening is Max is writing the same frame 100 times.

This is not the first time this has happened, and I think happening across two version.

Ring any bells?


I have been trying to get this kind of information for the general query to solve on time but it was not that possible for me then tried on where service totally amazed me with the quality


not really…what about outputting frame number just to see if it ticks over
