The problem with supersampling does seems to be computer related. I
could make a movie with supersampling in another computer. The graphic
card in the problematic computer (Running Windows XP) is an:
ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro AGP
Driver version: 8.410.0.0
Are there known problems with this graphic card /driver? . Any solution ?
I noticed that in the computer that I could make the movie the image
changed size as each frame was being recorded (as expected when using
supersampling). However, this did not occur in the computer that
produced the bad movie.
The script I am using to make the movie looks now like this:
movie record supersample 3
reset p1 1
reset p2 1
reset p3 1
reset p4 1
reset p7 1
reset p8 1
reset p9 15
reset p10 1
reset p11 1
reset p12 1
reset p13 1
reset p14 1
reset p15 1
reset p16 1
reset p17 15
movie encode output Test.avi mformat avi bitrate 10000
Another question. Do I need to put a wait command after each reset command ?
