|Welcome to the home page of
Anim8or. Anim8or is a 3D modeling and character animation program
that I have written over the past couple of years, not as a commercial
endeavor, but because I love 3D graphics,
animation, and programming. While it is far from a complete
level application like 3DStudio MAX or Lightwave, I believe that it has
enough capability to be of use to others.
v0.95 is now available. Anim8or has come a long way since the
release called v0.1. There are still may areas that need
improvement, primarily the renderer, but it's getting close to what I
had originally imagined as the magic v1.0. I don't plan on
stopping there, but it'll be a nice milestone along the way.
