Out of ideas. :shock:
Check if static image rendering works.If it works then the problem might be with rendering settings of video.

The size of force body doesn't matter.You need strength.Also reduce the mass of cloth.By default it should be 1kg which is highly unnatural for a child's balloon.

Nice work.

As of bottom balloon it seems like its leaking air. ;)
It should be the ropes and that might have been tangling with the balloon or lack of strength.

Any ways, the render is good.Nice choice of colors.It looks just like the example in the tutorial.Blendercookie.com 's tutorial right!

Possible reasons: 1>You may have no light in the scene. 2>You might have another camera which is active for rendering but facing some where else. 3>You might have turned on the sequencer in the post processing panel of render menu. You told that you can see the tank moving and turret pivoting.Is it ...

Basically., I'm having a mesh which is the hoop of basket ball court and a ball. I need the ball to fall via hoop in the game engine via physics. I have the collision bounds on for both objects but still the ball doesn't fall through. They react like they are two rigid bodies. The ball always bounce...

Soft body is like making the object out of jelly.It just moves about the place where it is placed.If you hit it with a rigid object with collision options, the soft body responds just like jelly.As soft bodies aren't affected by the wind in blender, you cant see it flying. I get your problem. As bot...

Force field are not particulate simulations like in real world.They just emulate the presence of force.You don't have to place a wind obj inside balloon necessarily.But you may try it.You can try it.I guess., nothing big will happen b'coz an internal disturbance in a body wont affect the body itself...
