General Anim8or Forum / Importing Exporting
« on: October 10, 2018, 05:43:04 pm »

I imported a 3ds file; a palm tree.  It has a texture file that came with it.  That imported nicely.  However, I paintedd the leaves green, saved it as an .an8 file, and exported it back to a .3ds.  I then imported it to a 3D game engine (copper cube) and the leaves aren't green and I am not sure why.

General Anim8or Forum / Texture scaling issue
« on: August 31, 2017, 07:56:08 pm »

I am adding a texture to a surface and instead of seeing one instance I see 4 of the textures.  I tried quadrupling the Wand H in the texture map to no avail.  Searched the forums and found nothing relevant which I found strange



Hi All

I just tried rendering this model.  I am able to render once in the Scene Mode  then, It doesn't render but it left the post menu side bar.  This only happens to me in the v 1.0; not the beta 1.0.   Any ideas?


General Anim8or Forum / Character building
« on: November 11, 2016, 09:24:14 pm »
Hi Gang

Long time.  I have some vacation time and I am devoting a good portion of it learning Anim8or.  I am building a character from 2 reference pictures and its coming along nicely.  I have a torso and a leg (yay!)  I am just going to copy the leg and the arm I make.

Whats the best way to join the extremities to the torso?  This will be a fully rigged character to be animated.

As always, thank for your input   :)

General Anim8or Forum / Transparency question
« on: May 13, 2016, 02:24:09 pm »
Hi All

I am trying to make an in ground swimming pool.  I am having a problem with importing my pool into 2 other programs.  When I render my pool in Anim8or i get my results: a transparent water layer.  But in the other programs, its like a bright white sheet.  I have to admit, I am having an issue with wrapping my brain around the whole lighting and material subject.  But if I was successful in Anim8or, why wouldn't my results carry over to the other programs?  Ultimately I am try to make a nice .fbx low poly in ground pool to use in Muvizu

Thanks for looking

General Anim8or Forum / Need a good start on a fighter plane wing

Hi All

First, glad to see all the artists still making awesome stuff with Anim8or!

Got the anim8or bug again (after wrestling with Blender) and I am working on a jet plane.  Wondering what would be a good start for a wing?  Especially making the edges curved in front


General Anim8or Forum / My environment pic is too dark
« on: August 23, 2015, 08:04:11 pm »
Hi All

I want to render a simple static object for a pic.  And when I try to add a background pic, it's too dark and I do not know how to brighten in up.  I tried messy with the lights to no avail.


Finished Works and Works in Progress / Coppercube and Anim8or
« on: October 14, 2014, 09:44:35 pm »
I have been experimenting with a program called CopperCube.  I think CopperCube has a problem with anything BUT textures, when you import an OBJ file into it.  Here is an example of a very easy model.  Some nice person from this from this forum provided me with the Earth texture!

General Anim8or Forum / Exporting models
« on: October 03, 2014, 03:46:14 pm »

I exported one of my Anim8or modes as both an .obj file and a .3ds file.  I imported the files into a program I am playing around with (Coppercube).  Why didn't my colors and materials get imported with the model?

General Anim8or Forum / Can't Fill Holes
« on: August 28, 2014, 08:26:39 pm »
Hi ya's

I am working on a model.  I have some faces selected.  I tried to merge them and Anim8or complained: Can't fill holes.  So I left the faces selected and chose "Fill holes".  Still can't merge :/

General Anim8or Forum / The Cut Tool
« on: August 25, 2014, 04:07:03 pm »
Hey gang

I am trying to wrap my brain around the cut tool and I think I may have learned how to use it correctly, but want to confirm.  If I cut some faces, say for instance through a sphere.  It will make a new set of points and edges.  I simply "select all" the new points and edges and hit delete and there is my cut effect.  No matter where I put the cut line; through the middle of the face, a 1/3 down, 2/3 down, that will be the face(s) selected to be cut. In other words I can't cut the faces in half or any other increment

Hope this makes sense.  :-)

General Anim8or Forum / spline dilemma
« on: July 18, 2014, 07:13:08 pm »
Hi Gang

I am trying to create some nifty shapes for electric guitar models.  I am using splines to creat the shapes.  When I FILL or JOIN SPLINES, I get these lines that make it a pain to do any extruding.   Why is that?

General Anim8or Forum / Import a picture/ model with splines
« on: April 25, 2014, 08:30:00 pm »
Forgive my lack of the lingo knowledge.  I want to bring in a picture (that I made with Anim8or!) and re-spline on it.  There are some changes I want to make, of course.  I think I saved a biederman tutorial but the link appears dead.  I could also have imagined it ;-)  Help?

General Anim8or Forum / Advanced Light Properties
« on: April 23, 2014, 07:59:54 pm »
Hi all

I made a pic of how I interpreted the Advanced light settings.  The cent would be the Inner with 100% light.  The farthest edge would be the outter edge at 1% and then after the edge 0%  Is that relatively accurate?
