...that tutorial will come in handy !! ::)

I see what ya did there....!

It's not just the orientation of an object that would make "correcting" the pivot point, but the symmetry of the object!  For instance, a cube is a symmetrical object, and you could locate the center of the object based on the planes defined by the faces.  But the same can't be said for more complex, non-symmetrical objects.  It's anybody's guess where the "correct" pivot point should be.

Anybody else find this thread a little odd?

Odd?  In what way?  If you mean that "This is the Anim8or Forum, and how dare anyone speak of anything else!", then no.  After all, a handyman has a whole set of tools at his disposal to do his job --- hammers, nails, screwdrivers, wrenches, saws, chisels, wood, metal, torches, wire, twine, glue, duct tape, etc.  He certainly doesn't need all of these tools for each and every task he must accomplish, but it helps to know what each tool is and how it can help him accomplish the task at hand.  And sometimes it's helpful to know if he can substitute one tool for another.

It's no different for 2D or 3D graphics composition.  I would venture that every professional graphics designer or animator does not rely solely on one program. 

And even more importantly, information exchange --- regardless of how relevant it may seem at the time --- helps spawn new ideas.

No posts since 18 June?  Really?  Is everyone off buried deep in on some magical Anim8or project?

In my very best David Attenborough voice....

LOL!  I can see and hear the documentary now, "David Attenborough's 'Wild Software'..."

kreator: You didn't know that I sell home-made vacuum tubes in my spare time ;) ?


Yeah, that must be in Steve's OTHER spare time, the one where he's not working on Anim8or.

Wait a minute....

Steve's in another dimension, where time and space are meaningless, and he has nothing BUT spare time!

That is indeed a nice touch!  Looks like you've got her well rigged.  The tail feathers add a lot to her expression, too.

In fact, that movie in 2014 was the same idea, but because of problems with a backup I had to start all over again...

WHOA!  THAT was a LOT of work.  Gotta give you props, man --- that's dedication!

Michel --- Impressive as it is, isn't this the same movie you posted in 2014?


Not to be flippant, but...

I can't help but think of the old Henny Youngman routine, "Doc, it hurts when I do this."  The doctor says "Don't do that."

But seriously, why can't you "build up" a big mesh from many smaller meshes?  Seems less frustrating to me.

ANDLewis, as in Martin and Lewis?  COOL!

Oh, wait.  You're likely too young to know what I'm talking about.

Hmmm.  Well, welcome aboard the forums anyway!

And yes, I'm certain you will find the answers you seek about Anim8or from the many folks who, like you, discovered this fun way to get started in 3D modeling and animation.  And the fact that its creator, Steve Glanville, is now retired and hence has more time to tweak it, it's becoming even better.

The vocals are not too shabby, and fit well with the video!  Definitely an 80's-90's feel.

Then again, I grew up in the 60's...

Steve ---
I know what you mean.  My late wife and I visited in (ahem) 1992, and I fell in love with REAL Italian food.  We absolutely HAD to have our daily fix of espresso, gelato, and pasta!

I'm a LightWave user, and there's one fellow --- Eric Matyas --- who's been "sharing" his music on this site:  Give it a look-see.  You may want to contact him.
