if you have bone limits set or free limits in "prospective viewport" ,click and hold the bud / end tip of the bone and it should rotate
depending on which mouse button you have held the bone will rotate in that axis ,i haven't worked in the animation modes for while but anim8or version 0.81 the rotate bone controls were X axis = left mouse button
Y axis = middle mouse button [or hold Alt and use right mouse]
Z axis = right mouse button

shameless plugin or you can try f8ce just convert it to subdivided and edit to your preference !

ASL Scripts / f8ce v0.9 plugin
« on: June 06, 2010, 06:56:04 pm »
f8ce is a plugin attempt at creating quick easy lowpoly humanoid characters with as many variation options as possible

Version 0.9 update

decreased poly count of model to
point 1964
edge 3918
face 1956

~shape changes again but this time based on real life reference
~removed all body attributes
~re edit of uv wrap giving the head more pixel space
~new addition of parameters for real time edit from -100 to 100 limit:
gender : no change but real edit with z non uni scale
torso : effects size of rib cage grouped with normal scale
muscle : make character look more buff x non uni scale
weight : increase gut mass y non uni scale
spine : effect length of torso grouped with normal scale
also include upper lower arm and leg grouped with normal scale

Following Attribute tags below will effect f8ce v0.9 models appearance

How to edit f8ce:
A)Goto Object>Attributes ...
B)Click New button to bring up the name tag box
C1)Type in one of blue name tags above remember all are lower case fonts
C2)you donot need to add all tags but click new each time to add an attribute to the active object
D)Important in the TYPE tab enable "point", 3 value box's should enable from left to right are equal to x,y and z coordinate of each tagged region
E) The plugin attributes go by percentages from -100 to 100 percent . how ever there is no restriction limit for attributes
F) At present there is a refresh issue with attributes but you can .
Fa)double click the f8ce model and click ok button to refresh
Fb)select f8ce model and enable non-unform tool then adjust one of the parameters with mouse
Fc) delete and recreate f8ce model

~attribute change donnot refresh unless plugin parameter is changed
~you cannot undo attributes but even if you delete the f8ce model saving file ensured attributes will be stored as well :D

how to install plugin : put f8ce.a8s in the script folder you assigned in anim8or>configure menu and wella plugin tool button will appear on side menu of object mode contains plugin , 1024xbmp uv template and f8ce9tester project file ,if you have older version than v0.9 i recommend overwriting or you wish to keep old plugin move it to different directory ,old saved projects i recommend deleting old reference to f8ce and recreating reference as v0.9  use different polycount

ASL Scripts / Re: collapse points command
« on: June 05, 2010, 12:33:57 pm »
ASL restricts configure GUI menu :( , you can just set wire to view outline points and smooth to only show outline for mesh

i saw a script which stores selections in sticky topic it maybe possible to use similar method to hide points but would also hide polygons connected to selected point as a hide selection , unhide selection ,it kinda seem scary script to attempt though loss undo data just by using render preview

i think create new object then copy paste deattache face is much more safe method

only way for you to find that bad data alone is to copy paste  small chunks section by section then test load in anim8or untill crash begin
im unsure what first 3 numbers are for but in most an8s i have looked in side  they have either (3 4 0) or (4 4 0)  !  4 5 0
4 5 0 -1 ( (0 0) (1 1) (9 2) (8 3) )

ASL Scripts / Re: collapse points command
« on: June 05, 2010, 08:38:13 am »
there not commands but the are ASL code functions

here is my attempt at visualizing how they work imagine liberian working at book shelf(array) at local library

function pop means liberian would take last book off the shelf read out its contents (sets value to assigned counter !) then throw it in a bin
function push means liberian writes new book based on parameter values then put it on the end of the shelf

unsure how a literal  pop command script would work but you could change collapse script to be a  push / (nudge command)


Code: [Select]
if ($xyz == "x") {
$at = project.curObject.LookupAttribute("collapse");
$sp = $at.GetPoint3Value();
$p.x = $sp.x;
change to $p.x = $p.x + , $p.y = $p.y + and  $p.z = $p.z + like so
Code: [Select]
if ($xyz == "x") {
$at = project.curObject.LookupAttribute("collapse");
$sp = $at.GetPoint3Value();
$p.x = $p.x + $sp.x;
then attribute "collapse" should just nudge distance of the value to each point set separately !

collapse command is first mesh editing command but first one i did was new 2007 but seems Steve did one better with updating anim8or with edit > copy material and paste new material so it would be pointless me completing that script

i hope to do command related to UV were these push pops will come handy ,first i need to finish editing model for that v0.9 f8ce plug-in before i attempt

impossible to know unless you attache file
you could try saving a blank an8 file then copy paste chunks of the bad file file
open an8 with notepad main chunks data are
mesh {
    name { "name" }
    material { " -- default --" }
    smoothangle { 45 }
    materiallist {
      materialname { " -- default --" }
points { data } = points
texcoords {data } = uv coordinates
faces {data} = edge polygons
note  mesh {model date} any data between belongs to the  name { "name" } model you want to recover
use " -- default --" to use no material

General Anim8or Forum / Re: How to zoom
« on: June 03, 2010, 05:30:54 am »
in any mode object figure sequence scene and browser
to zoom in any view port ctrl R  will enable arc rotate click and hold middle mouse (or alt and right mouse if useing 2 button mouse)  with in green circle will "scale zoom" if you hold right mouse out side green circle it will effect zoom angle of prospective view port

Body shaping done next the face.
realtime editing on Plugin had same issue with parameter directive  :'( variables reset back to 0 after switch int counter ,so i grouped body lengths to scale tool then non-uniform scale gender z axis muscle x and weight y but user can still alter lengths separate in plugin menu

Image show variation top left side is default has go down through them values increase
parameter limits were set between -100 to 100 should i increase the limit ?
wasnt space for foot and hand so i chose Torso parameter over other because it scales rib cage region allowing broad or amp to shape !
This now leave only the face using point attributes menu i guess maybe adding hand feet as floats on v1.0 .

1)create a bone with new bone tool ,make sure you have bone01 selected as this will solve complications if you plan to use weights
2)click menu build add object

3) double click model wire frame to choose weight or multi bone skining

my old anim8or tutorial for multi bone skining anim8or version 0.81 skining and bone limits
