Re: OpenGL Rendering. Yes, this is done using the GPU in a similar manner to how the screen is drawn. There are a few minor differences, i.e. GPU rendering doesn't support anti aliasing yet.

This file works on my computer. It uses ~850 MB which shouldn't cause a problem. How much is it using on your computer?

BTW very nice model.

Oops! That's where it is on my computer :) Try this one:

It's linked to by the first topic in the Ongoing Anim8or Development forum:

selden: try the new build-1321 to see if it fixes the problem.

Ongoing Anim8or Development / File Input add to ASL in Build 1321
« on: March 15, 2018, 11:34:47 pm »
Build build 1321 dated March 15, 2018 supports text file input in ASL Object Command scripts.

The ASL spec has been updated to show the new features. I've attached some sample files as well with a bit of explaination.

file_read_obj.a8s - imports .obj data files.
file_read_tokenize.a8s - lists the contents of a file as tokens.

selden: thanks for the bug report. I have a fix and will post it in a few minutes.

D.J.Peters: Are you clairvoyant??? You're asking this today after 9 years?
It happens that I'm just putting the finishing touches on a prototype build with text file input working. I should have it posted in a day or so

Yes, I'm working towards a 64-bit version. I'm afraid to change too much in the release branch - don't want to break everything! So I'll probably make a new branch to do the conversion - same features. Once it's stable I'll build both 32-bit and 64-bit from that branch.

A long term goal is to remove the 32-bit limit from Anim8or code. I've been slowly cleaning the code up for some time but there's still a bit to do. Currently it's limited to 2 GB I believe. There is an option to compile it the will increase this limit to 3+ but I'm not using it because some older versions of Windows would crash wiit it. Since I didn't have those systems to debug on I couldn't find the problem.

itsstillthinking: Can you tell me how much memory that nim8or is using? Open the Windows task manager to find this.

Nice work, SpartanJJ64.

First lock all layers except the one you want to select, then drag-select everything. This will only select the items on the enabled layer.

For shadows you need to:

1. Check both the Casts Shadows and Receives Shadows boxes in an Element's properties dialog in the scene editor.
2. Add a User light and check the Casts Shadows box and the Soft Shadows box and set the size of the light in the light's Advanced properties dialog.
3. Render using anti-aliasing.
