If you are using 4.0.5 to complete the tutorial, there is a known issue when using a fly camera component that can cause a crash while recording the simulation as a video. You might also encounter this issue when using a script that animates camera movements during a simulation, e.g. useView() or a program defined in vcViewAnimator.
A solution is to upgrade to 4.1. From there, you could use either the fly camera component, script, or the Camera Animator command found on the Home tab’s Camera ribbon group.
