It is fairly straighforward:

1. Create plane/"choose your plane"/"choose your elevation"/Apply

2. For a MPEG use the Movie Creator (icon looks like a bit of film). Create a view at time t, load the view at time t+n and load it, create the view in the animation tool. Choose the number of images you want in between to set the speed. Rewind using the scrolling button and play. If the want the animantion saved toggle on the save animation option and set a name.

Windows media player is limited in the size of mpeg it can play (i.e. number of horizontal pixels X number of vertical pixels). I can't remember the limiting size, but I think it's documented in the release notes.

Media player sucks. Download Quicktime from Apple at www.apple.com/quicktime. If you splurge and pay the $30.00 for Quicktime Pro, you can also create movies (with much higher quality and compression) from a series of image files (which you can select to write out from Post instead of an MPEG).

Regards, Robin

P.S. Not a bad idea to check out OS X while you are there

Hi,

How do it get it solved in CFX Post?

buying software is out of the question,they won't allow that in college.

then why is there a mpeg option in CFX?

when it cannot create one properly?

It can create one properly, it's your viewer which is has a problem.
