I have a fly-through animation of a machine. It's about 2 minutes long and I want the last key frame to exactly match the position of the 1st key frame to create a seamless looping animation. I've tried using the move tool to move the last key frame around, but I just can't get a perfect match. Does anyone know a way to get a perfect match?

Recommended Output Render Settings Does anyone have any recommended render settings for 2d output? It would be really useful to get an idea of best practice so as not to overcook the settings and leave renders running for more time than needed to get the best results.

In product photography for the web, one works with two resolutions: 1) Camera Resolution, which is fixed, generally around 20Mp for a DSLR and 2) Screen Resolution which is generally around 100dpi for a desktop LCD monitor. Whether you are photographing a blank sheet of copy paper or a roomful of paisley woolen scarves, the image size from the camera is always the same: around 20Mp(1). Visualize renders, however, are a different story, and my problem is that my "image size" increases linearly

There are few techniques as divisive as the keyboard short cut. It’s generally a “love it” or “hate it” kind of a tool. When I teach keyboard shortcuts, the average response is something along the lines of, “Bah.. I can never remember those things.

Please tell me how to get the palette to show up. Please don't respond with the space bar answer regarding the "easy mode". Really sick of this happening. If I have to delete the preferences again, not going to be happy.

I understand that 'Fast Mode' renders only 100 passes and in 'Accurate Mode', you can pick the number of passes. However, in 'Fast Mode', Visualize does not give you any options to pick the render device, i.e. CPU, GPU or Hybrid, while 'Accurate Mode' allows for the same.

Does an AMD Firepro W8100 work with Solidworks Visualize? If not, is support for Firepro anticipated in the future? SOLIDWORKS Visualize does not support non-NVIDIA graphics cards for rendering acceleration.
