Hey SU people,
I am in need of a quick favor...I have Sketchup 7 Basic. Not Pro, and
No LO. I built a model for a presentation and was hoping I could get
my model to spin in PwrPnt. Turns out I can't unless I buy the Pro
version. I cannot afford Pro, nor do I believe I will be using SU much
in the future. Would some one be willing to take my .skp file and make
it into an .avi file for me??? Its basically a cylinder model and i
would like it to spin 360 degrees laterally (as a globe would, but @ a
90 degree angle).
Please let me know if you can help me out!

Do you know that the free version can export animation to AVI, just as

No i didn't know that. I am real new to SU. Could you tell me how I
would do that??? Thanks

It would take a while to explain it all, but the basics are that you
There are other complications, but try to get that far, and ask new

ok thanks, sounds familiar to what I have been attempting to do... I
must be missing something. I will check it out again however.
Appreciate the help.

ok, Just looked @ it again. When I go to export, my 'animation' option
is not assessable. Its that light gray color/ unhighlight-able... Did
I DL a weird version where its not an option??

You would need to have at least two scenes for the Animation option to

lol, ok thanks Colin. I think I figured it out. My prob now is, once I
export the file, and insert the .avi into my pres, it won't play.. it
just blanks out/ goes black... any suggestions? Looks like it
automatically exports thru quicktime player.

It happens to use Cinepak, but it's not QuickTime. PowerPoint has
never been too flexible with video types, you may need to recompress
the video through another tool to get a more generic AVI file.

Ok, thanks, I'll give it a shot.

I've appreciated how you've help me out so far.. Just have a couple
more question; Not real sure how to go about re-compressing my
exported animation. I tried downloading a couple different programs,
both of which had their logo pasted to the video, Any recommendations
on something I can get with out purchasing? Second, my animation
appears to 'bob' because of the horizon used in SU. I have 5 scenes,
and the transitions have a slight pause, even when I put the scene
delay to 0. Anyway to remove the horizon? Anyway to make transitions

I'll give some some answers to your other questions in the morning
(I'm away from computers at the moment), but about the tools and logo
on top of the video part: either buy one of the programs, or hopefully
some of the PC users here may have some suggestions.

Jim, we're all beginning to think the same thing. :-) Oh, wait, Lance
Armstrong said guys can't use smiley faces anymore, so skip the
smiley, but you get the point.
If Colin's suggestion didn't work, try going to
