Scene background
« on: April 04, 2008, 12:42:39 am »

Hi,

My question is simple.  I did a Earth model (A spher textured).  I want to make a scene with my Earth rotating, and I want to put a space backgroud.  Just a black blackgground with whites pixels.  Finally, I would like to put my "movie" in AVI format.

How can I do that? -_-'

Thanks,

For a background, you want to go to scene mode and go, "Settings>Environment..."  You can then change the 'Background' at the top to either "Image" or "Panorama".  Panorama curves the image, normally so you can change camera view if need be.  Image is just a flat image placed directly in the camera's viewport behind everything.

Next, to save as a .avi, go "Render>Render Movie..." Make sure 'Avi' is checked and set your filepath and quality and make sure antialiased is checked, then render away!

Ok.  I already saw it for the background but, I wasn't knowing how to put one in Avi.

Thanks  :)
