Hi guys I have an animation question.

 

This is in reference to rendering out an animation as a series of BMP or TGA files. When Solidworks crashes is there a way to move to the time bar (in motion study) to start at a specific frame and not the time. My Solution has so far has been to be to take the frame number (before the software crashes) - 1 (taking away the first frame)/ 16 (whatever FPS I am rendering)

 

In this case the animation is 62 seconds and the render crashed on frame 163. So I know 164 is when the render should start but I can only put in a time which is 10.1875. SW rounds this up to 10.2 which isn't what I want.

 

Is there a way to control the animation by frame number and not time?
