For the animation, is it OK to use some small bits of audio from a TV broadcast? Just audio, no visuals at all.

I mean specifically small bits of audio from a TV broadcast event.

I can think of one source I might be able to obtain written permission, but if that fails are you guys fine with pulling a bite from a broadcast without explicit permissions?

Just looking for a quick response on the above :)

If it's copyrighted material, do be sure to get permission, especially if it's explicitly stated that permission needs to be granted.

I've been sent my license file, and it has installed as it's saying I have 9 days left until it expires, but I can't save my scene or change the realtime rendering dimensions (selecting a preset just stays at 1024x768 and then checks the 'lock aspect' button). Any ideas?

Got the email, just have to wait until I'm home after work to give it a try. Should be about ~6 hours. Thanks! :)
