I really want to like Stager and I do but, after multiple renders it just hangs on Estimating... for a while and I just have to cancel the render since it doesn't seem to do anything.
I have multiple camera angles in the scene and sometimes it will export the render after reaching 100% and sometimes it will just hang on "Estimating..." after fully rendering.
Is there an average time it takes for it to export the render? Should it be almost instantaneous after the full render time / % reaches 100%? Or does it take a long time to export?
I am having this exact issue too. It takes almost an hour for a single medium resolution images and once it gets down to 1 minute left it switches to estimating and just hang up there and never finishes. I'm just curious what type of machine you are on? I have an iMac with an M1 chip so I'm thinking maybe it has something to do with that. I hope someone from adobe will chime in on this glitch.
That can be issue with GPU probably. Try to swith CPU and test. Also updated GPU drivers and try to rinstall Stager. Did you have any problems with Dimension?
I have RX 580 but use CPU without any problem.
I have been having the same issue on an iMac Pro so not an M1 chip issue.
Some issue with iMac i9 128gb, do it's not likely a M1 or ram issue
I have the same problem. I have Nvidia GPU and as soon as I select render, it just hangs on estimating. Nothing happens. Adobe Dimensions would load it much faster. I even disabled render with GPU and still stays the same. Even if I select DRAFT settings... Pls fix this I cant render anything.
I'm having the same issue, my macbook is old though and I assumed it was a GPU incompatibility issue but my CPU is able to export the images (although slowly). At first it seemed as though only the last camera would hang on estimating but after more tests it seems to be random.
I have reset P-Ram, fixed disk permissions, cleared cashes, ended all non essential processes, and even externally cooled my machine to see if any of these helped. Nothing seems to change the outcome. It's like rolling a dice, regardless of project complexity or size it randomly happens.
I had accepted that perhaps my machine was just too old and would give up, but the fact that you are experiencing this on an M1 machine is concerning.
