So you're saying stick with it, that RunRev isn't bad at all? I have to 
say that I love the idea of an easy to use, high level tool which is 
cross platform – it's just that the implementation seems a little weak.

I downloaded the try-out version earlier this week and have spent 
around 6 hours playing with it. So far, I have had a few "this program 
has unexpectedly quit..." dialog boxes (due to Mac OS X 10.2 appearance 
manager apparently), the Animation Manager ate my text field and 
Geometry Manager seems, as I said, somewhat buggy in its behaviour.

OK. I hear what you say and you may well be correct – I'll stick with 
it for a while longer.

And yes, the example given may be a bit outdated – but it's one I can 
understand!
