I am new to Blender. Installed 2.68 from the Ubuntu software center and have been working through Mikecal’s tutorials to learn how to use Blender in editing my videos. Decided to install 2.78 (just because), and in both OS’s I’m getting that checkboard overlay that in most every editing program indicates that there is nothing to display.
I’ve done searches on this forum and on the internet. Found one specific instance of someone asking about the exact same problem. The reply was to simply reload the file. Well, have tried that and it does not work.
I know this must be something simple, and would appreciate advice as to what I am doing wrong.
This is my first post on this forum.
