[Bf-funboard] question about scenes and layouts

The first problem I see is that your Plane and Sphere scenes don't have 
cameras in them. Once I add cameras, the scenes play back just fine.

There do seem to be a few little issues with getting the VSE strips to 
update if I change something about the scenes after putting the cameras 
in. I needed to change something in the "Edit Strip" panel, such as 
Opacity or Channel, to make the VSE viewer update to show the 3D scene 
properly (else it would show the scene as it was before my change). 
There may be other ways to trigger an update that I didn't find, but 
ideally this should happen automatically.

Outside of that little issue, I don't see anything going wrong. I was 
unable to reproduce the problem with the Plane scene changing lengths, 
perhaps this has something to do with how you created the scenes? e.g. 
What you chose for linking settings when creating a new scene.

Hope this helps!

P.S. The Blender version I used for this test was 2.67.1 r57908. What 
was your version?

Thank you for your time.
