rather go to SATURN (department store) at Alexanderplatz
DUSSMANN on Friedrichstrasse, next to the railway station (of the same name).
KaDeWe is nice, but their music department is not that exellent.
first of all you’ll have to create a figure.
Next assign the objects, i.e. the parts a minifig is made of.
I think I saw a topic on that

and then there is ZweiStein, which is a
“…freeware non-linear, non-destructive video compositing and editing system which offers many advanced features unavailable elsewhere.
With Zwei-Stein you can edit up to 256 video, audio and still image clips, each with up to 64 effects chained serially. Cropping, panning and custom effects are easy…[Read more]
I’m afraid the stuttering is in the movie.
That has happened during rendering (though it’s Premiere Pro’s Media Encoder on a relatively fast CPU).
I made up the plot along the way. I can’t remember how it started out in the first place, but when I found the film’s second song on “Fuzzy Warbles” (I’ve been an XTC fan for ages) the story changed…[Read more]
I decided to let them dance because of the music: it sounds just like 60ies popsong’s break between choruses – that’s all.
There’ll be more films eventually – but I need ideas first 😕
(btw, the one before this is here:)

well Anim8or does export *.3ds files of objects and scenes. Don’t know if Blender imports 3ds…
I haven’t tried it though, and it’s almost 1 year since I last installed Blender.
sorry for double posting ( 😳 internetcafe-pc…)
Blender’s render’s ( 😆 ) quite good, but I would have to reconstruct everything since files can not be converted.
And also the Blender interface has turned me off everytime I re-installed it.
So I guess I’ll stick with the anim8ed-renders – only two months to go 😥
… is not that important in Anim8or. As I understand it, the rendering works the same regardless of the type of graphics card. I’m using a GeForce 5700 in my two Athlon pc’s and another nvidia (don’t know the type) in the laptop.
However the cpu and ram can never be high enough 😆
the inclusion of lights, which cast shadows,
the size of many high-poly-objects with textures applied
my guess at least – I’m only using computers, but I don’t understand them 😆
I’m using Anim8or for my cgi-films (as mentioned earlier :wink )
Objects created with LDraw, converted and imported as 3ds – that works quite well. And the rendering speed … well it depends on the amount of objects in the scene (and the cpu of course).
The average rendering time per frame is between 25 min. and 12 hours, at least in my projects

looks great 😮

but that’s the lego-way … after all, LDraw is the virtual copy of the real thing …
here is the minifig with brown hat …
again, nothing modelled! Those are ready-made objects, taken from LDraw, using MLCad, converted to and assembled (and animated) in Anim8or.
The rendering quality is not as good as in Blender, but makes (for me) animation easier and faster…
