Typically: when I re-baked the old scene I couldn't see anything much wrong- until I removed the 2 Turbulence fields I was using to make the smoke look interesting, after which I was rewarded with an absolute corker of an example of the issue (TC 06:21 to 06:22)-

Hello all, FYI I managed to get the problem with the 29th Sept build in a completely static domain, will try to find the blend file to send to this thread.

My bad! Apologies, didn't twig that 'animation data' meant everything keyframes wise - absolutely forget this! And thanks as always... Cheers! Mark

Hello & thanks! (Sebbas) Downloaded the latest build last night from blender.org, much better!

FYI: I made a couple of different sims yesterday- and neither did the above, so it's not happening every time.

Mark Spink (marks) added a comment to T57669: 'constant' f-curve not working happily with sampled motion blur Blender 2.79b.

Hello again, firstly nice work on v2.8!
{F7646074}Just asking about this issue, it still appears to be present in 2.8. I rebuilt a similar scene from scratch and it manifests slightly differently, but still happens.
Frames 118 & 119 show the issue, it still takes longer than the normal frames to render but not by years like in v2.79, and the long streaks are gone - now the bad frames are just more transparent than the rest. Scene and clip attached.
Cheers
Mark

Anyone know of any mirrors with 2.79b or 2.8 zip files to download? I'm having extremely little luck using the blender.org download links. (2.8 official release day: no real surprise there!) Got to 60 or 70 Megs downloaded then died about 4 times so far...

Nice one! I've been trying to download the 'nightly build' for about 3 hours now & it's stuck at 121 or 125Mb... I'll try the 'normal' zip, thanks...
...trying to download the 2.8 zip: varying between 40-50 minutes and 20 hours to download, and it's just stopped! Should have done it earlier before Europe & America woke up!!!

Imported the scene into yasterday's build, now all the characters animate as they should.

There you go-


I wasted half an hour deleting objects and trying to purge orphaned data, only to make a three times larger blend file which killed Blender 2.8 really fast just trying to load it!
So here's the actual file, tried it again in 2.8, only the armature parented to the path is moving, still works fine in 2.79b.
Just rewind and press play...

Mark Spink (marks) added a comment to T57669: 'constant' f-curve not working happily with sampled motion blur Blender 2.79b.

Here you go-

I think I must have tried it in Blender 2.8 and saved it inadvertently yesterday (still loads in 2.8)- if I load the old scene into 2.79 it croaks quicker than Usain Bolt signing up to do a Virgin advert, so I had to rebuild it.
Render frame 52, then try frame 53 (I'd make a coffee while it's cooking unless you have some seriously fast GPUs in your machine!).
Using 'start on frame' for the motion blur give the bullet-time streak and the see-through character on frame 53 as well (same as 'center on frame'), while 'end on frame' moves the effect to frame 54.
I'd drop the tile size down to 256 or so for the bullet-time frames as well; first time I tried it killed CUDA and I had to save & restart Blender before it would render it again.
It's a similar story trying this scene in 2.8 as well so the fault/feature seems to persist there too.
