Thanks folks for all your comments.
Olddog, that's exactly what I'm thinking, although I'm not going to spend anything on the engine, just use my free garage to transplant the engine and drive train from the v8 car into this new one. Most of my money has already gone on suspension and brake components. 400 hp V8, racing brakes and coil overs should see me round the track, and long as the car doesn't dissolve first! Probably got a bit left over for some odds and ends.
Just take screen captures anytime you make new lines or move some points, always from the same point of view (in Maya you can save your own bookmarks and come back to them anytime) then create a file in photoshop and put all of your screens in layers.
Open the ANIMATION window in the WINDOWS menu and create a new page (bottom right as in the LAYERS window) then start hiding or showing your layers in the order you want them to be seen, and create a new page in the ANIMATION window for each one of them..... Right clicking on each page would let you determine the length of each frame (if you set it in the first one, it will copy that info to the new ones you make, if not, I think you'll have to change it manually).
When happy with the result, go to SAVE TO WEB or something like that, choose GIF (and the quality you want) and save. I hope I made myself clear with this!!!
Sorry Nashwan I just want you to focus in finishing the "Z"
