Are you hitting 'g' to move, and then x, y, or z?
I'll try to keep this on-topic but I have tried 3 versions of Blender so far and it looks like for my practical purposes at the moment that 2.42 is rendering the generic Fox-like fanfare video quite well.
However, I am not sure of the exact aspect ratio to render in, and format (NTSC, etc.) that would yield a perfect picture on every DVD player out there. In other words, what's the standard final-ultimate format the AVI needs to be in?
For anybody who has been reading this thread and yearning to do their own video or bitmap of the pictures you're seeing, with your own text, I suggest asking Reaper for the .blend file and then learning how to alter the text yourself.
Moving the decks up and down seems a bit difficult since they are each in 2 parts and I can't seem to move both parts at the same time, meaning I have to very carefully move each deck up/down and try to stack the other part of the deck right on top of it with precise spacing. Any idea how to get around this?
Also, the 20th Century Fox fanfare MP3 that I found which is the longer one still runs out before this video ends so you have quite a bit of space at the end to chop off and do your fade-out if you like.
I'm sure my Nero DVD suite can do all of this without using VirtualDub, even the audio track, fade-in, and fade-out. I'll let everyone know how it looks when I'm done.
Thanks Reaper for getting me interested in these kind of projects and for sending me the .blend file I needed!!
