I was really amazed when I figured out how to do that one. The colors were created using the default "CHECKS" material as a partial environment map.

By the way, this is where I get my textures.
I don't actually have the program, but they've got enough sample pictures. They all tile seamlessly and are a resolution 512 x 512.

All of these pics were rendered before I figured out what AA was for. I could go back and add shadows and other stuff, but I like to move on to other projects when I don't plan to use them for something else. Here's another photo, and I personally like not using antialiasing for this pic because it brings out the rugged look of the character.

Here are some pictures I've made for a game that I hope to make as soon as I know how to make a game. I have two years' experience in Anim8or, and these span my whole career.

And when all else fails, go to the bottom of the screen, hit the plus sign, find the bone you want to manipulate and its specific axis, and enter the value manually.

That explains it, since I was using v0.85. Wow, the new version is like Christmas; it's everything I wanted, and then some. Thank you immensely, that solved all my problems.

Thanks for the shadowing tips. Apparently I just had a lighting problem and never noticed when I fixed it.

To clarify my second question:
Let's say I have a figure that I have named a "giblet." In scene mode, I have two giblets. In this project, I have two sequences, "pick nose" and "walk the dog." How would I get one giblet to pick nose and the other one to walk the dog at the same time?

Did you make the object by extruding faces from the base? As far as I know, any extruded face will never be textured anything but a solid color. If this is your problem, try making the bookshelf from the outside in by taking a big rectangular prism and using point manipulation to mold it into that shape again.

The website's tutorial on shadowing only shows how to do it for pictures, but I want to know how to make objects and figures cast shadows in my videos. If it's some sort of default setting, my program isn't working properly. I've looked under the element editors in scenes, but that doesn't help at all.

I have another unrelated problem. Let's say I have two elements, and they are both the same figure. How do I get them to execute two different sequences at the same time? Whenever I try to address this, the last figure that I added controls what all the other figures like it do.
