General Anim8or Forum / Drawing over model
« on: April 26, 2014, 12:15:28 pm »
I need to go over this text...

With the spline tool. As you can see there are too many points in the image. I have fixed the P. I was wondering what the new frames are for? Can I make a new frame, and go over the points? Currently I have the problem of deleting points, but with a top frame I might be able to just make a new model over the top of the first model which would be a lot quicker. However I have not figured out how to open a new frame. What I want is for the points to lock the spline tool into place, but not draw directly onto the model.

All Made with Anim8or, and computer programming in Dark Basic Professional.

General Anim8or Forum / Dark Basic pro Free

Having seen the UDK Free post I just found out that Dark Basic Pro is also now Free. But does contain Ads. Still, it's a lot easier to use than UDK, and will allow you to make any game that you like. Anyway you could try both.

General Anim8or Forum / Export 3DS animations
« on: October 05, 2009, 07:29:22 pm »
Has export 3ds animations ever been added to Anim8or? I know that somebody made a plugin that saved the frames as separate objects, but what about the whole animation sequence? I need it for my games.

I thought it would be fun to let you see my model (Others can post their models for the guessing game if they like) at an early stage.

This started as a hexagon, and I sort of pulled it around a bit, and then cut shapes into it, because this edge looping alternative looks like it would confuse me.

Although you can guess who it might be, I will not tell you till it is closer to completion....

I started this game in 2002, and have made quite a few games using Anim8or over the years. So what you see here is the progression of the game over many years. The game is a sort of cross between Elite from the 80's, and Star Trek Voyager, or Lost In Space. You are thrown to the other side of the universe, and have to trade your way back to Earth (First World). However, you do not know where Earth is, and with 10,000 planets to choose from, your journey will need to be blessed with some luck. Only a lucky few will ever complete it, as I do not really help in this respect. getting back to Earth will be an almighty challenge....

General Anim8or Forum / Can I convert a mesh into a path?
« on: August 10, 2009, 09:22:47 am »
I made an outline with a mesh, and now I want to extrude it, but mesh's do not extrude. So can I turn a mesh into a path?

I also cannot fill the outline for some reason.

General Anim8or Forum / Very Old Bugs...
« on: July 25, 2009, 10:11:07 pm »
I think it's time that some of the really old bugs were sorted out....

1/ Loading a texture with the same name doesn't replace the old texture, you have to delete the texture first.

2/ 3DS models are exported as unwelded, and look messy in other programs.

3/ Selecting faces is a bit dodgy at times.

4/ Moving the mouse near the edge of the screen does not allow an operation to take place.

Plus some handy additions...

Cut a circle... this is my most important feature. Changing anything into a circular extrude would be great. Good for trees especially.

I need a tutorial on how to texture a planet without the ends squashing up.


General Anim8or Forum / Text to 3D
« on: April 15, 2009, 12:54:12 pm »
There was a thread here somewhere about text to 3D, but I can't find it.

Is there an easy way to turn text into a 3D model? So that the reference typed text can be extruded automatically. I think I used to use Cinema 4D to create instant text, but I have lost my serial number for it. (It was free on a magazine, and the serial number was in the magazine somewhere)


Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / V97d bug

Rendering never ends. Using ART, waited several hours, picture reached the top of the screen, but black bar just stopped in the same place. Did this twice. I pressed PrtScn to show you..
