how to model tubes/pipes ?

1. create two concentric NURBs circles
2. create a locator and snap it into the center of the smaller
circle (inside)
3. create CV/EP-curve and snap it's starting point directly onto
the center of the locator
4. draw curve like you want the pipes to flow
5. select circles and curve
6. 'surfaces->extrude'
7. use 'edit curves-> add points' to continue pipe-extrusion in
real-time
8. 'edit curves->rebuild curve' to make the extrusion as smooth
as possible
9. 'edit curves->smooth curve' to finally smooth out your pipe

Talks about why an image sequence won't update the sequential frames, even though the first frame of the sequence shows up fine. Very tricky.
