I’ve been having a issue for awhile now regarding reading baked cache’s. The dynamics will bake but the cache will not be read during a render; the baked cache is ignored by the renderer. I’m beginning to think this is a bug but I first want to eliminate any possible screwups from my end before reporting it.
At first I thought this was a Surface Deformer issue since I’ve been having problems with that as well lately, but I eventually found it appears that the Surface Deformer is working, it’s just not loading the cache.
I was able to create a simplified version of what I believe to be this issue (it could be a another one of my screwups masked as the issue). Unfortunately BA will not allow me to upload it - maybe I could send it through a message, don’t know if BA allows attachments in messages. Anyway, it appears that linking Collections with library override will cause the cache to be ignored - in simple terms.
Has anyone else seen this or has any explanation?
