Hi folks,

in NET rendering, when a client renders a sequence part from frame 50 to whatever, C4D seems to preroll all previous frames (so 0-49).

My question is, how do I determine which is the actual first frame that will be rendered by the client and/or if the currently processed frame is a prerolling frame?

This is all in a scenehook.

Thanks in advance!

What i still would like to know is if it is possible to determine the exact client render start frame. Anybody an idea?
