At first I thought Machinima 2022.1.0 was broken in some way.
After some small troubleshooting. As anything always does.
When something doesn’t work. I went into settings and launched
The app with the Command line console. Turns out it takes nearly
5 minutes to start up. I have a 11700k with a 3090. Just wanted to share
my troubles about this specific app since it takes allot longer than
Create or audio to face to start up. So if had a freak out like I did.
Thinking there is something wrong. Just wait a few minutes with
the console log open. I don’t know if people have a similar experience
as I did. Maybe its just a given that this App takes along time to startup.
Maybe I’m spoiled with blender startup times. Anyway. This is just a PSA
If people have similar experience like I did. Thanks.
I was hoping that this was only happening upon the first time this application loaded, however, I got the almost the same issues when I closed and reopened the application 4 more times. The only difference was that he hang was much longer on the 3rd screen, about 1 to 1.5 minutes.
I deeply apologize. This is not the experience that we want you to have.
I will be sure to update this post when I have more information from the team!
Seems Double-clicking in the content window doesn’t work either.
Can no longer double click parameters and change them. Can only slide from left to right.
Show timeline on screen is no longer available.
Commands like enter no longer work when saving.
Not to mention it’s super slow compared to 2021. I’m Running an AMD 64 Core and an RTX 3090.
Hello Everyone! The development team just pushed through an update that fixes this problem. Please make sure that you have the latest version of Machinima and that your cache is up-to-date! Please post here if you are still seeing this issue.
I’ve just installed the new version (2022.1.2-rc.2) this weekend and it’s taking a few minutes to load. The last version i had was fairly old and it was fine before.
The only console warnings i get are…
