V7 SNP appears to be missing an extremely useful feature that V6 has, it is called making movies:
Here's how it works:-
You can make spectacular movies using Starry Night. You can record a graphically intensive event (such as a planet flyby) and play it back as a smooth animated sequence. Movies are played back using the QuickTime viewer, so you can send them to your friends and colleagues. They need not have Starry Night to view the movies. To make a movie, choose File->Make Movie. A dialog box will open that allows you to name your movie file and choose where to save it. The first time that you make a movie, the Compression Settings dialog box will also open. See “Movie Compression Settings” on page 153 to learn the meaning of the options in this dialog box. After you have named your file, a rectangle appears on the centre of the screen, which we call the Movie Box. Tip (Pro and Pro Plus only): You can change the size of the movie box (height or width) by choosing Preferences from the File menu (Windows) or the Starry Night menu (Macintosh). and selecting QuickTime from the dropbox on the upper left of the Preferences dialog box.
This V6 Feature is an excdellent teaching tool, I believe that it should be re-instated
