[IDV #AOT-741707]: creating a movie with an isl script

Hi, Bill

This may be a video card issue. I was digging around and found an old post on 
something similar.


I would start there and the suggestion pertaining to increasing the memory with 
the -Xmx1024m JVM option (or something appropriate to the memory capacity of 
your machine.)

Let us know if this works.

Also, about the mistake in the documentation, could you point us to its 
location so that we may correct the error?

Many Thanks,
