Short description of error

If you have a seperate window from where you start animation, parts of that it will stop and some will continue
When playing this animation from the window and then closing said window, audio keeps playing but the picture doesn't.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open .blend
  • Start animation in window
  • Close window
  • Audio keeps playing when you click 'Jump to First Frame'

Event Timeline

Exact Steps:

  • Open provided file:

  • Play Animation (spacebar) in small second window
  • Close Window:

Audio is still still playing until end however, animation in VSE stops (see on prev window's VSE)

Richard Antalik (ISS) triaged this task as Confirmed, Medium priority.

Animation is actually still running as evidenced by displayed FPS meter after window is closed.
Also Anim Player is not displayed in progressbar when playback is started in "child" window

I quess window manager should be responsible for this..
