Title: Hi guys!
Post by: ASIANBATMAN on January 04, 2016, 12:11:11 am
So, I'm new to this software and to this forum. Now before you guys tell me anim8or's not receiving updates anymore, I'm aware of this and I just want to try it out. I also use Blender a lot so I would like to compare the features of both. So can anyone point me to some interesting/fun tutorials for anim8or?

Thanks guys!

Now that would be where you are wrong (so very wrong) :P
But no matter anyways welcome to the forums.

Anim8or is still under development by the creator of the software. See topic ongoing Anim8or development for the latest release bro.

Thanks for the link ronaldefarmer!

I didn't know Anim8or was still receiving updates, how come on the website it says the latest is November 2014?

I don't know about that, but Steve posts news about the latest development build here: http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php/topic,4795.0.html (http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php/topic,4795.0.html). The link to download build 1205 is at the top of the page.

that was the most recent official/stable release.  there have been loads of beta/preview releases since then, though.

I too thought Anim8or was long dead. I didn't know Steve is still developing it! =D It makes me so happy to know this project is still alive! Anim8or is the first 3D software I ever used, on my very first computer back in 2005, and helped launch me into my adventures in digital art. Does anyone know if Anim8or runs decently on a Mac with Wine? I saw some people were using Parallels, which is fine but a bit expensive for my purposes.

Anim8or did not work with Wine on my Mac. I sometimes use Virtualbox, but Bootcamp is the best way to run Anim8or on your Mac.
