I am new to blender, and am following a tutorial making a light house scene.
The problem I am having is that when I try to render the light house part of the scene, the rendering windows comes up and won't let me zoom in, and keeps counting frames. It isn't that complicated, I usually have to close the entire program in order to get back to normal. Also for some reason even though I delete the cube that is in the scene at the beginning of every new project, it still shows up in my render.

Running Mac OS X 10.5.8
my blender version is 2.49a
You are pressing the Animate button instead of Render.
If you want to change the default scene, you have to save it.
Can you elaborate on that? Do you mean just a regular save or some other setting?
you have to save the user settings (ctrl +u)
Thank you, but I am still having this problem of objects that were deleted still showing up. There is a cube in the middle of my render that doesn't belong. Also at one point I duplicated an object and moved it, but decided to delete it because I changed my mind about it. The object is still in the render. Which I do not want it to be.
maybe is hidden. try press alt+h (for unhide), or if it's possible post the scene so we can have a look on what is wrong.
Thank you so much. I just realized I was using the "h" key to "delete" objects rather than hitting the delete button itself. I got it thank you!
np, glad it worked out
