I'm trying to create a simple rotation/translation animation with a cylinder and I end up with:

Weird animation error

When you press play, the mesh animates but the material preview is the same throughout each frame (as seen). It's the same if I render the animation...

Am I missing some setting somewhere?

Here is the blender file:

Blender v2.70

You've enabled dupliframes (which duplicates it for every frame). Set duplication to None: enter image description here
