Is it an issue of not having enough keys? I think you can remap them in software somehow, maybe that would help?

Work harder steve, or I'm reducing your pay by half.

Nice. This was a long time coming. And now I finally have a beast of a desktop to take advantage of this too. Though its interesting to see what parts the renderer is struggling with. Often times what I assumed would be the simplest turned out to take the longest.

Oh cool, this update should mean I can have windows (with transparent properties) set to not cast shadows while still using art. I had to omit the glass before to use art.

Edit: camera movement using the old arc rotate shows erratic behavior when middle mouse clicking.

Edit 2: can you elaborate on what this is about steve?

Scene Editor: Add camera move/pan widget. Active in Arrow/Move and Arrow/Rotate modes.

Yeah, I've done it on occasion using photoshop and the zdepth render...

But it would be nice if someone could streamline the process.

This probably doesn't count as a touch screen in the more common sense, but I use a Cintiq. The rotation seems...disorienting to me. If I change the Y rotation then switch to an X rotation its as if I'm tilting my head slowly to the side, which I would never want.

And while a right click wouldn't really work when using fingers, it would be good for me as I always have two buttons on the stylus, with one assigned to a right click.

Nope, no way to turn them off in ART.  I wish there was, it makes it so I cant render light coming through windows properly without leaving out the glass. Maybe combining two renders, one with and one without. But that's no fun.

This would be fine for lower poly stuff, but higher poly might need a more elegant solution. One things for sure though, anim8or could really use better rigging tools.

I never did figure out how to rig/animate hands myself.

Apparently its even difficult for Nintendo. With games like Mario Galaxy or 3D world they swap in different poses for each frame, stop motion style.

Yeah, I would like basically 3 user adjustable default sizes, a small medium and large.

While I'm wishing for things, it would be nice if we could tell it to render just a quarter or half of an image. This way we could have two or more instances of anim8or running in the background to speed up renders significantly. (they can be rejoined in photoshop)

I don't think there's much you can do, anim8or is the bottleneck here not your computer.

ELECTROHERMIT: Thanks for the support! But, honestly, I don't need anything. I'm retired and so I finally have enough free time to do some serious work on Anim8or. If anyone gave me any $$ I'd just have to spend it and that would take time away from working on Anim8or :)
You might not need anything, but we do. Kidding. Well, maybe half kidding. As great of a job as you do, you can only do so much on your own so fast. Just imagine how much more powerful of a platform anim8or could be with more programmers on board.

the easy answer is to go elsewhere, but we like the ease of use of anim8or and would like to see it jump forward a few generations.

Don't get me wrong though, the IK thing once polished up will be great, though I'm still itching for better rigging and rendering capabilities and I have a feeling it will take a long time to figure that out on your own.

YES! This was easily my most requested feature. It sounds like its still rusty, but any progress is a start, since we only got a taste of it before.

Edit: The sample seems to work as expected, but I too am having trouble setting up my own. Guess I need more of a tutorial.

To anyone who might know the answer, is there still no alternative for the middle mouse button? I use a wacom tablet and have no way of using a middle click/mouse wheel. I relied on the keyboard short cut heavily and now its gone. It really slows down my workflow in newer builds.

Kyle: if you could send me a project with the material that crashes, and the normal map file, I'll try to find the problem.
I was just about to until it randomly started to work, now I cant reproduce it. At least not consistently.

Anyway, I like the idea of putting more recent projects in the list. I'm so disorganized it would help me quite a bit for such a small thing.
