Grain Freezing in Harmony 16

Good afternoon!

I’m running into a problem with the Grain node in Harmony. The grain is set to be random on each frame. However, upon rendering the grain will randomly be frozen for 2-4 frames. As far as I can tell this seems to be a glitch in the node as there are no properties that should cause anything to freeze.

I can fix it by using the Sapphire plugin grain which doesn’t seem to have the same issue. But I’d prefer to find out if there’s anything I can do with the original Grain node to make sure it doesn’t freeze.

Update for anyone who may be following:

We think we found the issue - the checkbox for randomizing the grain on each individual frame appears to do the opposite function. So unchecking it seems to fix the problem. Maybe a programming error but not totally sure.
