    meighan.net was at 22 gigbytes out of the 25 gbyte limit for my account.


    In looking at effects in the database, I cam across a user who set frame_delay to 1. This means 1ms.


    His 5 second animation produced 5000 dat files and used alot of disk space.


    No one should have frame timing of 1 ms. In fact, i may have to implement that no one can have frame timing of less than 50ms on meighan.net. If you want shorter times, do a local install.


    I will be doing my shows with 100ms timing, maybe 50ms.


    On an RGB device where i am creating 7200 channels for my megatree per frame. 100ms to 1 ms means the files produces are 100 times larger.


    I have gone thru and changed any effects that had 0, 1, .5 ms timings, i set them to 10ms.


    These small timings cannot be what you were expecting.


    Please review your timings on effects.


    Remember, I am prompting you for frame timing in milliseconds, not centiseconds.


    thanks
