Not much to show at the moment - I have been working my way through a few tutorials and trying to get my head around animating. I started (slowly) working on Vacuum Guy's skeleton, so I am hoping that I will have some updates soon.
Also, I was having some problems transferring project files from my pc to laptop. mmoore5553, who showed me how to do it, suggessted I post the solution, in case anyone else has the same problem.
Basically, before recording your files onto CD RW, you need to turn them into Zip files. To create a .zip file, select all of the files you wish to add , then right click the files, select 'send to' and 'compressed (zipped) folder'.
This will compress the files allowing you to store your entire project and sub folders on a CD RW.
To open the .zip file, just right click and select extract. Probably obvious to everyone, except me, but just in case there are any other computer noobs out there... cheers mmoore5553!
