General Anim8or Forum / beyond anim8or

Hi everyone, long time no see. I'm a 21yr old college student now. Maybe some of you might still remember me from many years ago, I was the director of famous 'Anim8or Movie Project' back then.

I used to be hardcore Anim8or user, and actually used Anim8or professionally for 3 years, before moving on to learning Blender and Maya.

Well, since anim8or was my starting point and my main program for so long, and since some of maybe still remember me, I thought I'd share my biggest 3D achievement with you guys :) This is my biggest project up to date, that took over 8 months to complete. It's a 4 minute long animated 3d short, also my first attempt at animation. I didn't wanna put it in Finished works and works in progress forum since this is not made using anim8or, but rather it was all modeled in Blender 2.5 and animated using Maya.

I'm posting this here because I hope it can serve as inspiration for you guys still using anim8or, as in... "This is what you can do if you keep up the 3D, like I did :)". Also, big thanks to Steve for introducing me to 3D modeling via Anim8or, if it wasn't for him, maybe this movie would never be made either ;) So that's yet another reason to post this on this forum, ok enough chit chat, I hope you enjoy the movie!

ASL Scripts / Script idea
« on: July 28, 2008, 11:14:37 am »
I don't know how to make ASL scripts but I really could use script which would move selected points in random directions for specified distance.
I don't know if that's hard/easy possible/impossible to script but if anyone has any spare time and feels like scripting i would be thankfull.

Main reason for this is modeling of rocks, which always and up looking too artificial and i have to randomize all points by hand to make it look a bit more natural, which takes lot of time, and i have many rocks to do :)

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Crash / ART / Vista / render
« on: April 27, 2008, 06:57:29 pm »
Just wanted to notify of this as it happened for the second time now.
The screenshot contains all my system info.
Crashed while rendering with ART. Was using 36xAA (multi-jittered), specular/gloss (50k roughness) on multiple objects (cubes), and specular/reflection on textured bumpmaped plane.
My best guess is that it has something to do with my laptop monitor automatically shutting down after 20 minutes. I will remove the auto shut down monitor option and notify if it happens again.
Sorry for large resolution but it's the one I use.
