did you have the sphere selected when you clicked Build<convert to mesh??? if so here is the procedure to make sure you are doing everything correct :)

when you first start up anim8or and the project starts click on the "add sphere" button or do shift+S on your keyboard. then use the mouse to drag out a sphere on the screen. there should be some yellow lines around the sphere those mean that it is not a mesh. then click Build<convert to mesh, the lines should turn white. this means that the sphere is now an editable mesh! good luck i hope to see more posts by you soon :)

no problem i always like to help those who are newer. anim8ing is totaly impossible if you just do tutorials because they don't always make sense thats why the community is here ;-)

two or three things:

occasionally, the community doesn't make that much sense either, but fortunately those occasions are very rare, so long as you explain your issues clearly, which you did in this case ;D

and the other thing was, i didn't do all that many tutorials.  maybe that explains why i still don't know how to do certain things, 5 1/2 years later... :P  ::)

anyways, spo2, welcome to the forum!  :)

(I realize that telling you this is now pointless because you have your answer, but still use them)
