Title: Anim8or Meshes
Post by: jonny on March 20, 2008, 10:32:02 pm
I have been looking all over the internet for meshes of a minotaur. I have found several for other animation programs like 3D Max and lightwave 3D but nothing for anim8or. Does anyone know of any good meshes that I can download or any tutorials that I can follow.

I am a newbie to animating so need any help that I can get.

Thanks in advance for any replies

Have you checked with the meshes that you found if any had a file extension compatible with Anim8or import ?

You simply won't find models in the an8 format.

Luckily, anim8or can import from the 2 most common formats: .3ds (3d studio) and .obj. Just go to object -> import and load the file like that.

Though perhaps it would be more intuitive if you could load / save for all formats in the same load / save command, rather than treating .an8 as a 'special case' with its own save command. I know I've also had trouble finding the command to import.

Thanks for the help. I will have a look to see if the meshes I found have a compatible file extension. If they do then I will import them like you say.
