When I press, "Save Frame" to try to save the accelerated speed, it tells me I can only save that frame as a photo. Am I doing something wrong or is my 3DS a different model? Thanks!

Thank you so much, my kids have these, they love Legos and now we can be creative instead of just absorbed in a game. We did this following your steps, my six year old and 9 yo loved it and my inner child is screaming for more! Only one question. How do we send it to the world? Thank you again!
