!div style="display:none"!fjrigjwwe9r2content:tip!/div!!div style="display:none"!edf40wrjww2content:tip!/div!Particle pre-roll is only needed when you have particle effects in your model, like a fountain effect. When you render, strata has to caculate where every particle will be in every frame before it starts to render. This can take a very long time. If you do not have any particle effects in your model make sure to disable particle pre-roll in the rendering dialog, because if you don't, it will still go through every frame to figure out where the particles are, even if there aren't any. With pre-roll disabled, it will start rendering right away.
