To be fair...big choz is in the newbie lounge...and stwert you are doing a sterling job as usual...but I think big choz you could google/research a little too mate...I also have asked a lot of questions but I have also worn out my keyboard googling..so I think what dom meant without offence, is to try and experiment off your own bat mate is all...so lets get back to the fun and have a beer and get into it

cheers bullet

For the turntable, simply animate your object rotating 360 degrees over 100-200 frames.

To flesh out dom's first post...

i think it's bad manner to make a thread that has no subject in the title.
i realize that people probably don't know what it is they want to ask and so they make a thread with "NEED HELP", "NEED ADVICE", "HLP FST PLZ", and "IM NOOB, HLP ME NW" but really that's not a good way to start or end your question by trying to rush for replies and answers. A vague title like "rendering query" would be more useful, not only for the people who can answer the question but other people who are seeking related advice.

i'm not picking on you specifically Big Choz, a lot of people do it and i perceive it as being rude being you won't get help any faster by shouting at people. I know this probably isn't the intention but it does come across that way.

I think this is a bit of an older thread, bumped by someone else's question... I just don't think this needs to get revisited at the moment.

another way to do a turntable would be to use a camera an aim and a circle as a motion path. This is quite cool because all you have to do is scale and move the circle to change the turntable.
another way would be to use the turntable button. just set up the camera view and select the top group of the object. i think the button in the animate menu.
