Hi All

I have been playing around with this program.  I exported my .an8 fle to 3ds and loaded it.  There were no special textures so there were no worries there.  I thought I was going to be blown away by the render but  I was not.  I thought it looked no different then the built in renderer in Anim8or.  I followed the directions

"Exporting Unsubdivided models to .3ds
   - Leave  " Split Textured 3ds points"   checked"

Any thoughts?   Thanks!

I just wanted to thank Steve and all who help others and myself with this lovely little powerful program.   I am humbled in your presence.   Where's the bow emoticon?   ;)  8)  :D  :)  ;D

I only regret not finding it sooner.

There used to be a Zip file on the old now defunct geocities site named  Its the shark in the anim8or manual.  I wanted to see it as I want to create a shark-like submarine in anim8or.  Does anyone have a copy of this?


General Anim8or Forum / Its not snowing on my object :-)
« on: June 22, 2012, 08:04:24 pm »
Hi All

I am playing around with various Anim8or files.  I have the snow.an8 from here:

I noticed the default grid will actually accumulate some snow.  So I put in an object of mine and the snow goes right through it.  I was hoping snow would accumulate on it.   Any ideas?   Glad to see this little program is still alive and well!!

General Anim8or Forum / Copy a Figure1 into Figure 2
« on: March 13, 2012, 05:35:32 pm »

I am trying to make my life more simple.  I have a person rigged as a figure.  I want to take him and all his bones and copy him into a new figure and just tweak the new figure a bit and have a new figure, totally separate from the first.  Is this possible?  I selected ALL and tried to past into a new figure and 'paste' is dimmed  :(

General Anim8or Forum / New Computer
« on: November 20, 2011, 09:49:30 pm »

I am thinking about getting a newer computer and was wondering what might be the best set up for Anim8or?  Will it play nicely with Win 7?

Thanks and Happy Sunday!

Hi  I am starting to build a character.  I thought I'd keep it simple and make a sphere, add some subdvisions and then start modeling the faces.  I noticed for instance, if I subdivide the face on a sphere or a cube, I get a nice clean even subvision.  Then, if I further subdivide THOSE subdivisions, only one of them is nice and even.  The others get 'starry'.  I think I know what you are going to tell me.  IT won't add a point where there already is one?

General Anim8or Forum / Sound Advice
« on: May 06, 2011, 02:31:56 pm »
I did not realize Anim8or did not have sound capabilities.  I just assumed!  There I go doing that again!  Never the less:  I really like Anim8or.  It was suggested I use Windows Movie Maker to add sound.  WMM in Vista is OK.  In XP SP3 it is not.  I have the latter.  Any suggestions are appreciated.  I was really hoping to make a movie for the web with this program.

Thought I would add a new pic that I made in Anim8or.  What a lovely little program!  This is a flying saucer I made from help with this tutorial:
  I kind of played around with it to get what I wanted as far as looks  :)

General Anim8or Forum / The light
« on: April 25, 2011, 03:25:40 pm »

I have dedicated a lot of time to anim8or.  Its fun and so far I like my results. 

Any way I am playing with the light that I added.  When I look in the Scene and play with the light,  I notice it acts the the opposite I expect.  I am in the top view.  When I rotate the light to the left, I notice the light cast on my object moves to the the right?  Am I missing something?

General Anim8or Forum / Huge AVI files
« on: January 24, 2011, 06:36:56 pm »
Hi All

Well I was able to get my Robin animated and rendered.  I noticed though that my 3 second movie was 25MB as an AVI.  Any suggestions?


General Anim8or Forum / Simple walk: hidden object gets modified
« on: November 11, 2010, 09:32:13 pm »

I am now working on the simple walk tutorial.  My focus now is on the eye.  I created the eyeball.  When I create the eyelid (half sphere) and rotate it and apply the material, my hidden eyeball gets rotated and colored as well?  What am I doing wrong?

General Anim8or Forum / Hand Model Tutorial Issue
« on: October 14, 2010, 05:26:36 pm »

I am following the tutorial for modeling the hand.  I do this: Close the dialog and convert the Cube to a Mesh with the Build->ConverToMesh menu command.  And it still looks like a grey box.  Help?
