Can anyone post me some really good, easy to follow links regarding animating simple 4 second clips. Aka i medium close-up of my character from lying on her back from the left with her looking upwards and then turning her head away.I’m not trying anything too complicated. I have googled and followed instructions but it just doesn’t seem to be working for me at all. Am getting super frustrated.

Also can anyone tell me what’s causing the problems in the attached file?

Any help would be greatly appreciated i have 30 second clip with a mix of still images and animation to make for a University assignment.

looks like you have 2 Genesis in your render .
pose Genesis in 0 frame - then in last frame turn her head like you want .

Thank you do much for you help. I remade the scene and it has appeared to have fixed the problems and seemed to have got animation working now * fingers crossed* only thing is now the background image isn’t rendered in the final animation.

Render as still images with the file extension .jpg then use Movie Maker or another program to make the still images into a movie file. That will keep your background image in your finished movie.
