I’ve used Blender on and off since the NaN days, but I’ve never tried animations until now. I’ve been following some of the simpler key frame anim tutorials on the web and gone through the relevant section in the online manual, and every time I try to render a simple animation the computer freezes up.
system 1.6 Ghz P4
256 Meg RAM
5 Gig+ free disk space
simple anim - cube move past camera
key frame (loc) 1 cube out of view
key frame (loc) 80 cube in view
Everything works fine previewing anim in 3D window (Alt+Shift+A)
Render (only things changed from default):
frame 1 to frame 80
format Targa <- crashes no matter what format used
(the dir c: mp\ does exist)
Tried with and without “Do Sequence” button in.
When I press ANIM I get the first frame showing and then the computer locks up and only responds to a reset
If anyone has any suggestions/handholding walkthoughs(!) I’d be grateful to hear them. I’m probably missing something really dumb! I don’t care, I just want the @#$%&$# thing to render!
