Here's a quote from the website:

^Theoretically Anim8or should work under the Vista operating system without any problem.  However the OS and graphics drivers have a lot of new things to do to make this happen with the added complexity of Vista's new compositing desktop.  There are several things you can do if you experience problems with this.

1.  Unfortunately there are a lot of problems in many drivers.  If it's not working for you, the first thing to do is see if there is a newer driver for your graphics card.  QUite a few people have reported that a newer driver has fixed their Vista problems.

2. Another thing you can try is running Anim8or WinXP compatible mode.  Right-click on anim8or.exe in the file manager and select XP Compatible mode in the menu that pops up.  This causes Vista to run Anim8or in a mode that is more like Windows XP which more drivers can handle.
