I've noticed most of 3d modeling programs have some problems. Maybe one has an amazing modeling tool, but rigging or animating is awful, and other has a nice rendering engine, but modeling tools suck.
Well, I can honestly say that's the reason I use and love an8. I'm pretty glad and happy with it, great modeling tools, easy and efficient rigging system, clean and very user-friendly interface. All it was missing was the IK tool, which is now in the making, and I'm freakin' excited about it. 
Maybe for the future some displacement maps added... and I think an8 is PERFECT :D
Right?

Well, I haven't done much with it yet, and I've lots to learn, but I'm certainly having fun with it so far! And, yeah, adding IK should be a huge boost for animation.

Beyond that, I'm sure there are other major features that could be implemented, or even QoL things. Something can always improve, after all. But, I do feel like, so far, AN8 seems to have a very solid and well thought-out foundation to build on.

wolfsong73 There will always be new features to implement, of course. But I'm glad I didn't stop using an8. Since from beginning, it was very easy to learn.
I've recommended to Steve some nice features for an8 for now, I wait for the complete IK tool. I believe this is one of the most important tools to be fixed. And Steve is making an amazing job :D
