Title: The Walking Bird tutorial
Post by: 3D Joe Wiltshire on February 17, 2008, 04:31:35 pm
i have tried this tutorial from the website, i skipped it when i started using anim8or so i decided to try it to understand the figure mode

it was going well untill i got to the beak, it tells you to make a square (NGon with 4 sides) but on the picture it is in a diamond shapr, like this <>
but when i made it, it looked like this [ ] the red and blue axis lines face the right way, but when i rotate it to the diamond shape, they are facing the wrong way, is there something i'm meant to do? or is it a problem with the tutorial?

thanks for your help

The orientation of the red and blue axis lines don't really matter in this context.  As long as you have the object rotated correctly you should be ok.
