    Noting that I have added a camera to my C2, if I set the timelapse post roll option (which indicates "in seconds") to 60, I've witnessed this at the end of a job indicate that it's going to create 420 minutes worth of end frames (or something ridiculously high).

    Has anyone successfully used post roll?

    Yes, notice the "Timelapse post roll (in rendered seconds)". You probably want 1 or 2.

    I use 1, which at 25fps means 25 frames, and at 5s frame interval means 2min 5sec.

    Uh, wow. So 1 rendered second = 2 min 5 sec. It sounds so easy when you say it that way. :laugh:
