Sounds good to me, I'm using Blender 2.5 Alpha 2, are Render Layers in that version yet?

I tried to do this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEa-xw7CvXQ but couldn't find the Render Layers.

Oops and i was going to ask how can you edit the origin of a text object because "Set Origin" doesn't seem to give you the option to move the origin to wherever I like.

Text objects- their origin and Halo materials on them

Hey there,

I'm having trouble making text glow.

I tried Alt c on the text but it converted it to curves (which I can't convert to a mesh).

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Animating a group's transparency?

Hi there,

is there any other way to animate a groups' transparency other than through it's materials in Blender 2.5? It would be pretty laborious if I had to set keyframes up for a group that had 20 materials on it.

eg if I wanted a car to fade in on a background whilst driving through the scene

Sorry I'm more a designer than a programmer guy.

How do I run it from the command line? And sorry where is the command line?

Sorry for my lack of coding skills.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 won't open Blender 2.49

Is anyone else not able to open the new Blender on a mac with a similar configuration to me? How on a mac can I see if it's crashing at some point in it's start up?

Thanks in advance.
