KK, so I recently purchased The Essential Blender and am working on animation.
So I’ve gotten everything set up and go to actually render the final “piece”, the book says to hit anim button in the scene buttons (f10). So I do that and it opens a “render” window which cycles thru my frames stopping at the end. Then the book says to click play to see the finished, rendered animation.
I can understand that. My issue is that when I hit play…Blender stops responding. Or, in other words, after hitting play a new “render” window pops up but stays black…and in order to do ANYTHING else with blender (ie close windows, model something else, or move anything) I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and close blender via the task manager.
What am I doing wrong???
added afterthought: The only way I can see my animation going full speed is if I do shift+p in the window I have set my camara to (well i guess I can do it in any window that has the model in it…but I do it from the one set to the camara so I can see the “finished” product.
