Hey guys, you do know that even though the renders may look great in Anim8or, when you place them into a gaming engine, they will be rendered differently. For instance, all the ray tracing won't work. Thats something specific to Anim8ors rendering process. All the cool effects have to be created with the programming language/game engine. ANd most game engines don't allow special effects like this stuff, so you usually have to get into programming. Your best bet is to switch over to shaders. ENTIRELY for all your effects (refraction, bumpmap, reflection, water freshnel, sun bloom). But I don't think Anim8or supports shaders, so you won't be able to see them in the rendering process.

But yeah, in mainstream games these days, all the cool water effects, suns brightness, and other stuff is controlled with shaders. So although your models/scenes may look great, you gotta remember that you won't be playing the game within anim8or, but another engine. It's easier to choose the models around the engine, instead of the engine around the models.

enginmes ahvent got anythinbg tod o with this game. Its not going to be real time :S

its going to be slideshow point and click Myst style, with an engine already made using Adventure Maker. Its going to consist of prerendered graophics, so all effectsa re going to be okay ...

Panoramas would be great. It would make the game in the style of Myst III: Exile ... Though anim8or doesnt render panoramas ...

Trees, foliage, animals (ducks, horses)

ill be getting a new pc when i can actually get the money lol ... sumtime during May, june time? not quite sure yet. Hopefully very soon :)

just work at modelling from photos of trees
beech, willow, birch, oak ... anything

there is a great way to make leaves but i will model them myself as they mustnt cast shadows (or the trick is ruined:P) unfortunately the trivk doesnt work very well in anim8or in terms of shadows!
