The yahoo mail list has been replaced by the Source Forge mail
list. Please see:
To render a file to a file:
The first step is defining the sound source. Use the Sources dialog
([SRC] toolbar button), Allocate Sources... dialog to set the "File"
Source Type. Make sure the One-Shot option is checked to disable looping.
Next, create the virtual environment you want using the various
options for moving sources, etc. See Help and the various menus,
dialogs, and keyboard shortcuts. You can listen in real-time. You
might want to temporarily disable the One-Shot option so the source
loops while you set the environment. But, remember to enable
One-Shot again before proceeding to the next step. (If you forget
and render a looped file, hit the [S] toolbar button ASAP to stop
rendering - it might take awhile being processing has priority - a
looped file is an infinitely long source file!)
Using the slab3d Settings dialog ([S SET] toolbar button), select
File for the Sound Output Type. The output file is specified
directly above it.
Press the [S] toolbar button to perform slab3d rendering. When the
button pops back out you should have a rendered output file.
