PhotoView exploded view animation only saves one frame. Restart not working

Hi SolidWorks Forum


My problem, as far as symptoms go, is that whenever I try to make an animation of my exploded view using PhotoView 360 (SolidWorks 2014 SP5 Student Edition), only one frame gets rendered. The problem is only related to PhotoView, as I get satisfying results using the normal renderer, see:

E.g. when saving as .avi I get a 0.04s long film consisting of one frame and when saving as .bmp images I get one frame ("*-0000.bmp").

While rendering the first frame it says that it renders frame "0 of 0", which makes no sense to me.

I've tried restarting both SW and my machine multiple times to no avail.

My machine is spec'ed as follows:


Motherboard: MSI X99s SLI PLUS

CPU: Intel i7 Haswell 5820K

GPU: Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce

Ram: 16 GB DDR4


I've attached the file I'm trying to render (assembly file named "minifig").

Could somebody please try to render this on their machine, just to rule some things out (E.g if the issue is related to SW version, file, machine, OS etc.).


Thanks in advance.



Kind regards
