    Unless it's one of these less common issues, but now more common than ever. Detailed information about the SSU and known issues here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3177467/servicing-stack-update-for-windows-7-sp1-and-windows-server-2008-r2-sp) Known issues for this update Restart stuck on "Stage 2 of 2" or "Stage 3 of 3" After you install update 3177467 together with other updates, a restart may be required to complete the installation. During this restart, you may find yourself stuck on "Stage 2 of 2" or "Stage 3 of 3". If you encounter this issue, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to continue to log on. This should occur only one time and does not prevent updates from installing successfully. Note In managed environments, such as by using Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), you can avoid either of these issues by deploying this update as a stand-alone update. Please note, only a small percentage of systems typically exhibit this glitch and the solution is simple. Just type CTRL-ALT-DEL to dismiss the message and return to the Windows 7 login screen.

    Live Answer Time... less live archived versions!

    I've tried it twice and nothing came out on the other end. 😀

    Problems solved, I just Reinstalled and updated...... All is well with the world now... Thanks for the help Gang....
  8. Rob, you do know that YouTube can archive the live stream for you, right? It may not give you the control you're after, but it makes things easier to start. Here's the YouTube support page about it... https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/6247592?hl=en

    Hey Wally, This is a common glitch in the Mac version. The workaround is to switch to another app and then back to A:M. I use CMD-TAB to open the app switcher and I usually go to Mail, since it's usually open and seems to work every time. Once I'm in Mail, I do the same thing to go back to A:M and you'll find that it's not greyed out anymore. I almost do it out of second nature these days.
  12. I'm making a project that involves a solid-spoked wheel, much like many car wheels are today without hub caps. To cut down on the modeling I used some lathing and duplicate techniques. I based my lathe outline on a rotoscope diagram. I used two CPs at every corner to make a sharpish but still-beveled edge... This wheel has 8 spokes (with 8 holes in between) and a bump on each spoke. The easiest way to model a round bump or hole is to stitch it in on splines between two other splines. That means a minimum of four splines across for each instance of a hole and a spoke with a bump... To support 8 holes/spokes, i need to do a 32 cross section lathe. (You set that at Tools>Options>Modeling)... However, the five-pointers around holes and bumps prefer not to be stretched very far or around large turns. I'll need extra splineage where I've drawn it in... To create those spline I put some extra CPs in the lathe outline where i wouldn't normally need them for a straight spline. I broke up one spline crossing and spread the edge splines apart to start the pie-shaped hole... Connect the front and back edge splines... The corners are 6-points and need to be split into two 5-pointers. I add a CP to the middle of each front-back spline with the Y key and stitch in a middle spline... The five pointer patches are still visibly wrinkled from having to turn a large angle. I stitch in a new spline around the hole between the middle spline and the old square edges and hook in a new radial spline at each corner at the wide end of the hole... Now the 5-pointers don't have to do much curve work. I stitch in the oval spline for the bump on the spoke and that gets me one finished hole and spoke... I could do this seven more time around the wheel, but there is an easier way... I cut out the 5 lathe sections that contain this new modeling and deleted one lathe section on the edge to leave hanging splines... I grouped that, set its Pivot to 0,0,0, the copied, pasted and rotated the pasted part 45°... I connected each hanging spline to its immediate neighbor in the old section. This new quarter section gets copied, pasted, rotated 90° and connected to make a half section. The new half section gets copied, pasted, rotated 180° and connected to make a complete wheel.
  13. YouTube it is. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/yLnrZywVnbA Sorry about the misfires... If anyone can provide a Mac-based workflow for reliably producing videos that will play in the forum -- much appreciated.
  14. You could upload it to YouTube and put the Youtube link here.

    Thanks guys, Im sure its some simple quirky thing, sooner or later Ill figure it out or work around it.
  16. I am puzzled too. Usually these things "just work." I cannot effectively test other formats, etc., because everything works for me in my browser (Safari).
  17. Here's what happens for me. I'm not sure what is wrong...
  18. TGA sequence was exported from Quicktime 7Pro compressed as MPEG-4 video. "Prepare for internet streaming" set to Fast Start. Default extension is MOV. I changed the extension to MP4. Does play for me.
  19. No, i don't see it yet. 😯 Does anyone else see it? What was the actual video compressor used? The MP4 I posted previously was h.264

    Here's a tidbit from Mark Largent. It doesn't sound exactly like your problem but give it a try...

    Sounds like a permission problem to me. I am not a Mac guy, but I know that there are some kind of permission settings for programs, right? I can only set you on that track and can't really tell you how to do it, but maybe it already helps? Otherwise someone else here is surely going to know how to do it. Best regards *Fuchur*

    Greetings Folks, Been a few years since I have worked with my AM so these will probably be stupid questions. Couple years ago I bought the program ( v. 18.Oo SSE4 2008). I run a iMac 'High Sierra v. 10.13.6 My problems are 1 I can not import images for Rotoscopes or backgrounds 2 When ready to save I can not choose a name or a location to save at. (see attached image) Any suggestions? Please.... Thanks
  23. Extension changed. Seems to work?...? Rhino-Beest-gait2.mp4

    v19.0f1 for Mac v19.0f for windows

    Cool, just curious. Thanks
  25. I suspect most people will not have MOV available anymore since Quicktime has been declared a security problem. It's off in my browser. Try just changing the extension to MP4.
  26. It is MP4 in a MOV wrapper. Is this a Mac vs. Windows thing? The video plays for me...from the Hash website...
  27. Looks like you'll need a different video format. That one doesn't play. Try MP4
