Any other Echo Fire users?

I'm using Echo Fire on my after effects system and it seems that sometimes rapid preview decides that it only feels like rendering every 5th frame on certain comps. It seems completely random.

Anyone else ever experience this? I using the demo, but from what I understand its supposed to be fully functional for 72 hours. I looked in the manual and all the settings and saw no mention of every 5 frame renderings. Ram preview works fine.

Any advice (besides shell out $350 for parhelia)?

In case anyone ever comes across this thread with a similar problem, it seems its a strange glitch that has a simple solution. Change the frame rate in the comp settings, move the playhead to a new frame, and then change the comp settings back to their original settings.

This solves the problem.

Ed,
I haven't come accross that problem yet, but I'll keep an eye out for it!
Must say, I'm very impressed with Echo Fire. It's exactly what I needed to preview After Effects (and even Photoshop!)
