  1. OK, cool, got it now… thanks so much.
  2. Wow Rob, this is so interesting and helpful… but... (Perhaps, I am doing something wrong) but, when I download the Prj.zip file , all I get is a "BlueHorizon.tga" picture file and no project file.
  3. Have you tried that Mac trick/work-around, where you click on the desktop and then return to the search window to get access ?

    Theremin simulator

    When I said, "Reminds me (edit;"of") that sci-fi movie that had Robbie? the Robot and the Krell ?", I was referring more to the electronic audio affects used in the film, in the general sense, not that it was actually used in the film. Yes, the Wiki does detail the actual methods used, quite nicely. Right, no theremin, but for a movie out of the 50's, when I first saw it, I recall how greatly I was impressed by the electronic audio effects, and "the Barrons' electronic composition is credited with being the first completely electronic film score." (wiki) At that time, I didn't even know what a theremin was. Today, I might actually consider building one as a electronic fun project. The circuit is a fairly simple one.

    The Robcat tutorials

    Yes indeed, a wealth of A:M information. I should think a link to this should be made prominently available in the New Users Forum. Thanks Robert.

    It Can't Be Done! Feb 2014 Nominations...

    Well, in reference to… "something you'd like to see figured out and explained"… A nice 'step by step' showing how to combine one's own digital footage on an A:M background, and/or the inverse, of an animated A:M model appearing in ones' own digital (photo?) background. I know this has been presented before, but the examples are few and far between.
  9. I very often get this too, when first applying a decal. Actually this is with v18.0, I have not d'loaded 18.0a yet. It's like old clipboard garbage, with signs of something else I was working on before in there. Although, there are times when it does not happen at all. Yes, they always seem to render properly, so I never mentioned it before, but it is annoying. Might just be a 'Mac thing'. Not necessarily an A:M / Mac thing but a Mac / Mac thing, and the way it keeps the clipboard memory clean? Just an un-educated guess, mind you. The decal here is a JupiterMap

    Insert Mass?

    Hmm.. I don't recall seeing this before. In keyboards commands we have the letter "Y" which inserts a CP, but now there is a "Shift Y" and it says for "Insert mass" ! What is this ? I tried using it but it seems to do nothing ??? Anybody ?

    Final Render Question

    Thanks Rob, it's OK now. I realized what was happening. Actually, I was not missing any renders at all. Subsequent renders with the same file/path name just silently 'over-wrote' the previous final render, without any usual dialog (like "Replace File ? etc.). I only realized this after noticing the File Info - Time, had changed. I don't do too many final renders lately, so i'm still in the learning curve somewhere here.

    Final Render Question

    I was doing some final renders with my 'Holidays Image Contest' file and after 1 or 2 first tries I happened to notice a place in the camera properties where the file path and other parameters can be entered, so I tried it. I admit, I probably should have just left these alone, because after I entered the current final render parameters, suddenly, I could not get any out put from the final render anymore. I managed to re-enter the original parameters in there and it allowed me to resume my final render tests ok. When is the proper time, if ever, to enter any info into this area ? And/Or why would it seem to hamper my final renders ? Thanks
