Hi there, I was experimenting with some basic animation in FormZ yesterday and seem to be having no luck in selecting Maxwell as my renderer of choice to render a 10-second animation.


I've been launching the animation renders through FromZ's Display menu and have succeeded at creating animations using the built-in modes like hidden line or shaded, but when I select Maxwell, the process seems to go nowhere.... 


Am I coming at this from the wrong direction? Should I be launching this animation through Maxwell itself?

Hi David,


I just ran a quick test and simple animations are working here.


Did you try the steps outlined here?

I would recommend animating 30 frames of a simple cube moving to make sure you understand how the process works, before moving on to more complex scenes.
