Title: Attributes and What They Mean
Post by: scott113341 on March 25, 2008, 02:55:09 am
Well, I just got the new preview today and was excited about the new ART renderer and features.  But, I had a hard time figuring out all the mysteries surrounding the classes, attributes, Kr's, all that stuff.  I worked it out for about two hours and came up with a spreadsheet that has some information about how all the attributes work, and I figured I'd share it with anyone that wants it (I'm not the most advanced animator by any means, so if there are errors, sorry--I'm just in high school right now and don't spend too much time on this).  I hope it will help anyone that's just starting to use Anim8or (great program, by the way--Blender scares me) or doesn't want to waste time learning about all the attributes.  I've zipped the Excel file (2003 version) because this site won't let me attach that extension nor files over 128 kb...  ??? :(  I wish they would up that...  Any good free sites to use for this purpose?  Thanks.

I've updated it with hihosilver's fixes.  Thanks.

I have a few corrections for the spreadsheet:
1.  "anim8or" is not an attribute.  The attribute is "specular" as you have written below.  You don't need an "anim8or>specular" attribute.
2.  "Ks" is not an attribute either.  Ks actually stands for the "specular" value in anim8or.  I'm not completely sure why it's referred to as "Ks".

Nice spreadsheet though, I'm sure it will be helpful to many, but I'd also advise making those changes.

Hilosilver, Do you think you could fix the spreadsheet and atach it to your post with the updated information. Thanks.
