PI Duration in Optics 2023

Hi, I’m trying to make a cinemagraph and I want to increase the duration of the cinemagraph I have it at 30FPS and 600 frames in the preferences but my timeline maxed out at 100. I try to reopen but the results are the same.

Windows 11: 22621.1702 (22H2)

@jsharp In the Optics preferences, change the Effect Duration from 100 to the desired duration. Then, open Particle Illusion and you will see the same duration.

Oh it’s set in Optics? Not in PI?

Now I’m wondering why there’s a setting for it in PI. What about framerate?

Yes, the host application (Optics) sets the duration. The framerate will be set in the PI render menu.
