I have taken the advice of friends and made yet another test sequence using my Carrara 6 Pro software. This 12 second movie was rendered in Quicktime at 1280 X 720 using the Photo JPEG option. The render has some improvement in the lighting which of course has a price to pay. (better lighting = more render time) I have animated this icosohedron so often that I can do it in my sleep now but it has straight lines and shiny surfaces and lots of little stars for detail just so I can see what will upload to the 'Net the best. I am always thinking of you, gentle viewer.
