I have some animations and baked simulations in my scene. When I view the playback, it plays at around 16 fps. Right now I can use my mouse to scrub through the timeline which works ok, but obviously I can't move at an exact speed. I know there are ways to improve the fps, but is there a way to simply force 24 fps? I don't care how bad it looks and I don't care if it skips every other frame. I just want to see how the animation looks in real time.
I randomly found an answer to this while looking for something else completely unrelated.
I can see the problem here. It is probably because your hardware isn't able to handle it. I am sorry to say that. Maybe try restarting your computer, or try clearing any junk files, anything to increase the speed of your computer. If you could share your computer specs, it would be easier, or there is one more solution, try removing 1 simulation. This might boost your computer. It would be easier if you could share a video of the simulation in the viewport mode along with your hardware specs.
