Dear Joanne,

You can alternatively try to use some rendering software (PovRay,
Tachyon, Raster3D... ) and create a sequence of pictures corresponding
to your movie. Later, this sequence can be easily converted to MPEG
movie. In addition, the quality of the resulting visualization usually
much better than from simple "snapshot" approach.

Hope this will work for you,
