  1. That got it to install, but it still wouldn't run. I tried the usual stuff, reboot, reinstall from scratch, run as administrator; still wouldn't work. For now I'm going to give Blender a whirl (I know it's harder to learn, but I'll give it a shot). Probably by the time I'm done with this project I'll find my other A:M disk (I think it was version 13, 2006). Thanks again. I'll be back.
  2. Thanks I'll try it tonight!
  3. OK I'll try later tonight, and look for my other cd too. Thanks.
  4. Yes, I probably had a later CD version, maybe around 2005, not later than 2009. But I can't find it 🙄 Thanks.
  5. I found my old A:M disk and inserted it in my not as old Windows 7 PC, and it says: The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. I thought this PC would run both 32-bit and 64-bit. Is there a way to get this to work? The disk says ©2002. Can't afford a new version. Thank you. --Roger
  6. 10 years ago I stopped in the middle of Scarecrow of Oz after my mother fell ill, and one problem leading to the next, never got back to it. Now I'm working on a music video for a song a friend wrote, and thought I'd see if I can do some modeling and animation for it. So here I am.

  7. Sounds like an interesting project. Do you need any help, like making models of electronic components or anything like that?
  8. It still didn't work, for the .mov format, but there are numerous other options when I render the .mov file, which I haven't tried varying, and am not familiar with - see the image below, maybe you can see something I have set wrong. Anyway, since the AVI works now I'm happy with that. Thanks!
  9. I posted this in another thread before knew about the raffle, so here it is again. Hey everyone, I got Animation Master a while back because it was recommended to me by an industry professional who has since won an Oscar (not with A:M, but he recommended it for me because it's less expensive than whatever they use). I went to grade school with the fellow 25 years ago and in a 5th grade class we animated the old fashioned way. stop-motion. Well, I've been too busy workin' to get anywhere with A:M until now, but, inspired by this old friend, I just got the upgrade to the newest version and I'm rarin' to go. -Roger

  11. Thanks to your suggestions I finally got it to work. First I tried a simple AVI from A:M which worked. Then I went back to the Movie Studio software that I capture from my camcorder with and found that it has about a million combinations of options when rendering video; I selected Cineform HD Codec V 1.2 for an AVI and it worked; I had been using the default or NTSC DV. I still haven't gotten a MOV file to work but haven't tried all those combinations yet, and it doesn't matter anyway as long as one of them works. THANKS!
  12. When I try to add an AVI file either as a new layer or rotoscope, I get this error: Exception # 019 in the "AVI" image to plugin. This happens with most of the AVIs I happen to have available on my computer or create with my other software ( Sony Vegas Movie Studio). A few I tried from another source also wouldn't work because they are 32-bit. I don't think the ones getting the error above are 32 bit, so what's the problem? I've also tried adding MOV files, also created in Movie Studio, and get the error: Invalid image file Unsopported file type, or image plugin missing. I know I'm probably missing some simple step, but don't know where to find it. This is my first post & my first week trying out Animation Master, so sorry if I should have found this answer elsewhere. Thank you.
