Try  http://www.anim8or.com/download/beta/animv100beta2.zip

Checked out the CAD, better than debug A since can select lines/points.

Fast AA works great in non-AmbientOccluder renders, not so good in Occlusion tests (very granular)

Its kinda similar to how the N64 does AA in that it doesn't sample every sub-pixel (N64 only checks 8/16 in a staggered/dithered pattern)

Trev

Edit: ah, Steve fixed it

Yes, I need to return more information from where the rays hit the first object to make soft shaded things like ambient occlusion work well with it, but I can also do better with a more comprehensive filter of the samples. This probably won't be ready in time for v1.0 because it risks adding a lot of bugs.

Notes for v1.0 beta 2, dated April 15, 2017:

Hot Key Changes: Ctrl+N for File->New, Ctrl+O for File->Open, Ctrl-S for File->Save, and Ctrl+Shift+S for File->SaveAll. Smooth shading was changed to Ctrl+U.
we can probably file this one under 'better late than never', can't we :P
this is a really good change, though - thank you Steve :)

Well well well. Look at that. ... Almost there.

Just to indulge in some temporary personal curiosity.

Linux Mint 18.1 "Serena"
+ Wine 1.6.2
+ (An8 Sys: OpenGl 1.4 Mesa 11.2.0)
++ (Startup, +mode switch:Object+Figure+Sequence+Scene+Browser, Quit)
  • Anim8or_95C.exe - seems okay
  • Anim8or_98A.exe - seems okay
  • Anim8or_v1.0beta.exe - seems okay
  • Anim8or_v1.0beta2.exe - seems okay
... burp ...

@Steve  Giving the Beta a download and test now.  We have been waiting a long time for something with a 1.0 tag, and this is totally awesome to see.  This product has been *the* most intuitive 3d drawing software out there for a long time.  In terms of modeling speed, it is faster to produce something in Anim8or then chuck it out in 3ds for anything else that need be done with it than it is to do it natively in the other popular platforms (open-source and otherwise).  I have always looked forward to the day when there were more tools available...but not at the expense of the simple and powerful interface.  It is also the best education platform out there.  I am *inordinately pleased* that the project is still in development and has not gone off the rails (totally).
  I only wish it were open source, or at least had a developer vetting process and a team involved...with a despot at the head that could make sure the interface doesn't get "Blenderfied".  Truth is, if it were open source, I would probably stop working on medical software stuff...so that is perhaps for the best!

Limiting the selectable component types (to vertices, edges, faces or combinations thereof) isn't working in the 1.0 betas. Faces are always highlighted whether or not the face button is active.

I was able to reproduce this once but can't do it again. I need some more information.

What tool were you using and what editor?
Were you in wireframe, flat or smooth view?
Was Fast Select enabled?

Select, Move and others.

All of them.

Was Fast Select enabled?
Yes.

It appears that Anim8or silently enables face mode in addition to vertex/edge by mistake, but doesn't activate the face icon.

OK I found the problem. It's fixed for the next build.

In flat or smooth shading mode Anim8or needs to temporarily enable faces when you are picking points or edges to see if the point or edge is hidden behind a face. After the test face selection is reset to the user's value. I missed a place where it needs to be reset.
