Hi Catabina... welcome to the forum..

as xero11213 mentioned, anim8or is simply an exe file.. you can add various scripts though.. but before even starting the tutorial I would suggest to go through the GREAT manual. Read EVERYTHING from page 1.. as you read along the manual you might try that particular topic on anim8or.. I hope that will be your stepping stone... good luck..

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / No light on back of a face ! !
« on: April 13, 2008, 09:17:21 pm »
I am not sure anyone had face this problem before or not. I searched the 0.97 Preview forum but couldn't find any topic related to it.

I made a tunnel to represent a corridor then I put a light and a camera inside. When I rendered the scene with ART I could not see any light. But when I use Scaline I can see the light. Then after some more experiment I found that, only the front of the face can reflect lights with ART. I had to Flip Normal the faces of my corridor to fix this.

your comments please.

Good Luck for the competetion....

Even though you mentioned about the image size.. if u could render a higher resolution picture and upload it, we could get the sunny feelings of the beach a little better.... ;)

To select a object inside another what I do is .. Click the 'List item' button or 'Ctrl + L' and then select the name of the desired object from the list.

I am afraid I am unable to answer your second question as I am not good at programming ASL. But I read this article about setting transprancey of an object using ASL. It might help you.

Nothing within my knowledge... The only solution is to render each time...

It means your graphics adapter does not support OpenGL required for Anim8or (As Tanzim mentioned earlier).

The ferrari is almost complete.. The finishing touch is taking longer than I expected... :( .. Tanzim, I am not sure why I like this car.. It has got an aweful design (coz of the aerodynamic stuff i guess) but very picturesque... Thanks for everyone's support...

Nice models there.. I liked the StarTrek one the most..

Just one personal opinion.. about the first pic, red-blue combination looks a bit toonish rather than the macho image it should have. And just wondering what is that red thing sticking out on the top.... ???

Good work though.....keep it up and good luck.
