sidival ---
When learning anything new, it's always best to start out simple and work your way up.  For instance, 
1.  Start a New Project, and model just ONE ball.  Make sure it's centered at the origin in Object mode (select it, and click Edit > Locate > Center about Origin. 
2.  You can change the name of the object.  Click Settings > Object...  This opens the Object Editor dialog box.  You can type in a suitable name (like "Ball").
3.  Change to Scene mode and click Build > Add Object.  Select the object "Ball" and click OK.  The Ball object should appear centered at the origin in the scene.  If you can't see it, try changing your view.  Click View > All.  This should show you te Front, Top, and Left views, plus the camera view.

Other things to check:
1.  Make certain you've selected Smooth Shaded as your display mode (Ctrl-S).
2.  Open the Viewport Editor (View > Preferences), and make sure you've click-selected the Smooth, Textures, MipMaps, Transparency, Fog, and Backside options for OpenGL Workspace.

Hope this helps...

The Manual is a great source of information, but only if you bother to read it!  Not only does it provide a great deal of information about using various tools to create objects, it specifies how to "build" scenes.

In a nutshell, in Scene Mode, click on Build > Add Object, and select the object(s) you want to add (one object at a time).  Then, you can keyframe camera and/or object motion to render individual frames or entire animation sequences.

BTW, besides reading the manual, the tutorials are an excellent way to learn the basics, too.

It helps if you have a link to an image.  For me, I have a link to an image on my website, but you can just as easily link it to a posting site, like

Greetings, Shawn.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you also use LightWave?  I've seen you (or someone else witha similar name0 over at the Newtek Forums.

Click "Profile" at the top.  Once there, you can add a picture or avatar, and a clever (or not so clever) caption for each of your posts.

Good luck with that hope, anim8orblenderman.  I seriously doubt Steve Glanville --- the ONE guy who has written and supported Anim8or all these years --- is going to even consider that request.  But you just hold on to that hope...

Ah, a fresh new stomping ground, a bit more "with the times."  Well done, Steve, though I know you've had far more important things on which to focus your time, energy, and money.  Here's to a successful launch and continued growth of the new and improved website.
