I have average wind speed data for the UK at 5x5km grids in raster form for every month over 10 years.
I load the first 7 months into timemanager and the animation is fluid without any loading/down time. As soon as I add the 8th raster (tested with different rasters), there's about 50 milliseconds of thinking time where nothing is displayed until the raster loads and displays the layer. I've built pyramids for the rasters but it hasn't helped. If I load a basemap, then there is 'thinking' time between every raster making the whole animation studder.
Has anybody else ran into a similar issue when animating large datasets?
In the end it won't matter as I can still export the stills into a folder and stitch them together in video editing software but it would be nice for the animation to run smoothly in QGIS.
