So outdated
« on: November 17, 2009, 08:02:35 pm »

Is Anim8or discontinued? The website is still just horrid, unattractive 1999-like design and there haven't been any new versions of the program for months. There are so many details, mainly in the user interface and menus that I would like to have changed for a better workflow.

Everything about Anim8or could use a revamp.

By all means, Unregistered, if you think you can do a better job of creating a 3D application, please do so.  Unlike the open-source community that's working on Blender, which is also free, Steve Glanville is just one guy, the sole creator of Anim8or.  It may not be as jazzy or powerful as some other 3D applications, but it does a pretty darn good job, considering, especially for the beginner.

Of course, you could always shell out a few coins for Maya or 3DS Max!

It would be nice to have a revamp, but the program is still great.

I've offered to redo the website before, but Steve said he saw no need for it.

It works, its simple, and its easy for him to use if he wants to make quick updates.

Most so called invogue web sites feel impersonal...this site and anim8or feel very comfortable, familiar, homely.

For the most part the site works fine, While I dont think it needs to be rebuilt or anything a few touch ups to the graphics would be nice like a new front page artwork and loosing the little Animated "Enter", I mean really, no one ever clicks that first do they? I always find myself clicking the image because thats the way most every other site does it.

But otherwise as long as the site functions and isnt causing errors and page faults it's still suitable.

Just for the record Rudy it might mean that in the states but in the UK it means what it says...( and I thought it was an international site!)

If one is in or from the UK (or a crown colony, I suppose), you're absolutely correct.  If, however, one is from the States, it behooves one to use the proper word form, differences between the Queen's English and American English notwithstanding.
