Ongoing Anim8or Development / Re: Normal Maps

All normal map functionality will be in final renders, including the crease change (if it works as I think it will :) )
the question was if it was going to be in the work-space rendering (opengl), but I think what you said means that the pictures  you are showing are rendering through opengl then?
Yeah that's what I meant

Is the workspace going to render normals or will this just be a final renders thing

(This pretty much falls under the "Free Node System" suggestion: Upgrade the rigid bone system into flexible nodes and constraints like in other animation systems, where they are easily movable, scale-able, etc.)

Yes but bone length would be easier to implement, and would be more compatible with older files

+1 to animating bone length

As long as the "frame view" ability is left intact, i'm fine with this

Minimize it, don't close it

Ive noticed in the latest versions that anim8or is no longer reading .mtl files. can anyone else confirm?
Edit: opening the .obj file via Import still reads the .mtl file, but directly opening a .obj file no longer auto loads the .mtl file like it used to.

here are 3 samples, I hope they are good enough to work with

I don't know what program made these files, but I believe them to be from the same program.

Can you get this to work with all SMD formats? the files I tried it on came up with "type mismatch" errors.

I like designing my robot prototypes in Anim8or because I can then animate the robot to see if the parts will actually go together and move correctly before I print them.
It's official: Anim8or is the perfect tool for printing our robot overlords XD

i just got back after being sick, and I see that the version with fullscreen came out! i'm testing it now
Edit: it works now! thanks Steve!!! :)

Actually, a correction, its only one light, but it passes through the object, since there are no shadows in the workspace renderer. the yellowish light is actually the faces being illuminated from the backside. The reason for the black stripe is that the light doesn't illuminate surfaces that it hits at or near a right angle. Well, you learn something new every day... I always believed it was one light...

Yay! thank you Steve! now all we need are normals maps and it'll be perfect! ;D :D

run over that spot again with the weight brush, multiple bones can have the same color assigned to them, making it look like the area is connected to the right bone, when its actually connected to a different bone nowhere near it.
