Animating the Frame Rate

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is anyone aware of a way to animate the frame rate in Cinema 4D? Similar to 2D animation, I'd like to fluctuate between animating on 1s, 2s, and 3s without having to render all 24 fps.

i don‘t think that’s possible, since the frame rate is defined in the project strings as well as in the render settings, and those parameters are not keyframeable.

Hi there,

While you can't keyframe the framerate, you'd be able to slow down/speed up the animation in the F-Curve/Dopesheet. This article might be of some help: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/graph-editor-in-cinema-4d

 

Alternatively you can render out on 1's, 2's etc. in the render output settings, but the Dopesheet is where you'd control the movement really.

RE: Is anyone aware of a way to animate the frame rate in Cinema 4D?
Its not possible. Even if it is, you do not EVER animate the frame rate. It's one of those project wide settings that should be set in stone through-out the animation. 

RE: I'd like to fluctuate between animating on 1s, 2s, and 3s without having to render all 24 fps. 
Yea, that's easy. You use a step keys. I use a mix of 1s, 2s and 4s whenever I am blocking my shot.

  • While it won't affect playback, a script like this will help me get what I'm seeking:

    Sorry I don't get it. 
    The video you referred is for solving render problems (i.e. On frame range 0-10, frame 5 didn't render). How does it relate on rendering on 1s, 2s 3s? 

    Again have you tried the step keys I suggested above? @cinomadic

    @bentraje I do use step keys, thank you! 

    With regards to the video & script, I could, for example, animate on 1s for frame 0-5 (24fps), 2s for frame 6-10 & 16-20 (12fps), and 3s for frames 11-15 (8fps).

    I could set up the Render Settings with a script like this. It may seem like a lot of work, but with a complex scene it would be great to cut out unnecessary renders (in this example it would be 14 frames instead of 20).
