he is what I have, A large tank style cannon.
He is what I want it to do, when firing I want it two sharfts of the cannon to recoil into each other.
I have tried palying around with bones and angels but can not get the affect I want,
So is there a way to shorten and lengthen bones during animation, I have tried to editing a sequence starting with a bode long and making that a keyframe and then 20 frames later changing the length of the boneand making that a keyframe but that doesn't work.

General Anim8or Forum / Adding texture to different faces.
« on: May 17, 2008, 09:02:51 pm »
I am having a problem that I just can not seem to fix, I have a texture ok, I can load it in, fine..
I make a cube not a problem.
Click the buttons that will allow me to select faces, that I can do.
If I select the front and back faces of the cue and add the texture it looks fine, but when I go to select the sides, top and bottom faces and add the texture the texture gets added but it seems stretched.
What am I doing wrong.

General Anim8or Forum / piecing together Animations.
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:25:58 am »
I was just wondering what programs people use to piece together their anims, and add sounds. I have been using windows movie maker but you can only add one sound, I need to be able to add multiple sounds and slow down or speed up parts of the anims..

But here is the problem, on some frames everthing looks great then for now reason I will get a big dark shadow that comes out of nowhere and will last on the screen for a few frames then go, THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE GIVING OFF THIS SHADOW!!!,,

General Anim8or Forum / 3D world to fly over.
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:27:53 pm »
here is what i am wanting to do, and then maybe someone can help with how to do it.
I have an Animation of a space ship flying through space and heading towards a planet, the next scene I want is as follows,
Camera view flying through this world, through valleys and over mountains,
then I want to have that turn into the viewer is behind the ship so you see the ship from behind flying through this world.
So basicaly i guess I am asking is there an easy way to build a terrain and animate the camera flying through it?..
Can be a third party program (preffer Free).
Any help would be great thanks.
