Title: Browser Plug-in?
Post by: ronaldefarmer on March 08, 2014, 05:50:16 am
Hello Anim8or Community,

I think it would be a great idea if there was an opengl browser plugin that would make it possible to display an an8 file in a webpage just like an animated gif. Would it be possible to create a plugin that would allow for viewing and manipulating a model in a fashion similar to using arc-rotate in Anim8or's workspace?

Believe it or not, I'm actually working on this, and will provide a means to embed interactive .an8 files directly in the forum (pending Steve's approval), or in external websites.

That would be intense indeed. Perhaps VRML, X3D, or one of the other web enabled formats would make using something like 3D Exploration to convert Anim8or animated models to some other model formats that support animation? Not really sure if something like this is even doable? Even non animated would be useful as well.

Raxx,

That would be fantastic. I often make models that I would like to show off, but a still image or gif doesn't have the same effect as being able to rotate and examine the object or view an animation. I'm looking forward to hearing about your progress.
