As the title says, the last picture is some times omitted. Assume that my picture matrix has 24 images, only 23 images will be drawn and there is a gap for the 24th image. If I run the vtm multiple times on the same video, the last picture is sometimes there and sometimes not.

This seems to be caused by a setting of the 'advanced timeline control - special matrix', to be more specific, the 'Randomize actual positions at the rate of n% of the current timestamp' setting - may be in combination with 'cut last' setting active.

Two possible solutions for this, may be more:
a) Ensure that the last frame timestamp + n% is not longer than the movie duration. But that could reduce the range of the last image from - 5%/+5% to -5%/+1% or something similar.
b) A possibly better solution (but of course more complicated especially with all the other settings from the advanced timeline control like cut first and cut last) would be to "reduce" the movie duration by n% at the start and beginning before calculating the image timestamps, that way the first image - n% would be the very frist frame and the last image + n% would be the very last frame.

Can't reproduce the issue.
Could you please export your Options and post it here?
The video file would also be great (you can share the file with me using Private Messages).

It look like the last frame could be ommited due to the "Try Substituting for any color frames" (Options -> Advances Timeline Control).
