General Anim8or Forum / Layers question
« on: January 29, 2022, 10:24:44 am »
I have always been a bit confused about the layers feature. What are they used for? Are they like image editor layers where it places one object in front or in back?


General Anim8or Forum / Creating edge loops
« on: January 25, 2022, 10:16:59 am »
Is there an easy way to create a new edge loop in an object? The only way I see is divide each edge to create a new vertex in the middle then connect each one manually.


General Anim8or Forum / Knife tool question

Is there any way to get the knife tool to only "slice" visible geometry instead of all the way through the object?


General Anim8or Forum / Coding Anim8or
« on: April 23, 2017, 11:13:02 pm »
This one is mostly for Steve since he makes Anim8or. I was wondering, as a developer I am curious, what development environment you use to make it, and any libraries like MFC or so, or just raw Windows API calls.


General Anim8or Forum / Feature request
« on: April 16, 2017, 04:52:41 pm »
Sorry if this isn't the correct forum for this, I wasn't able to tell.

I have a request that I hope won't be a problem, but I would like to see the ability to play a sound when rendering of animations is done. A lot of times I hit "render" then go do something, but the computer is within ear shot. Knowing exactly when the render is done would save the time after it's done to the time I check if it's done, which would be really nice. Again I hope this isn't too much of a big deal.


General Anim8or Forum / Images vs Textures
« on: April 11, 2017, 07:44:42 am »
Can someone please explain the difference in the configuration between "Images" and "Textures" directory settings?



When I open the movie image properties dialog, and click inside "other" edit box, but don't type anything in, then click any other preset frame rate, I get an error that says "frame rate: malformed number". This may show up once, or infinitely and I have to kill anim8or with task manager. Keep in mind I don't click the "Other" radio box, just the edit box, then one of the presets.

Would it be too much trouble to ask for a few new options. Either the ability to change the default resolution of renders, or at least save the last used resolution between sessions. I just never find myself rendering at 400*300 myself

EDIT: Ok, it looks like the resolution is preserved in the file after you save, so I guess all I would like is to change the default for new projects

General Anim8or Forum / Question about shader
« on: March 28, 2017, 04:32:03 am »
Under the "use shaders" option, what is the difference between the 2 options, and which one is the best option?


General Anim8or Forum / Menu Folder
« on: August 15, 2016, 04:00:53 am »
I always wondered, what does "Menu Folder" under the object properties do?


General Anim8or Forum / UV help
« on: August 08, 2016, 02:44:52 am »
Hello, I am learning to use UV editing for the first time, but I can't understand how it works in anim8or. There was nothing about it in the manual either. I click the UV button and position the yellow mesh, but I don't know what to do next. Is there something obvious I am missing?


General Anim8or Forum / How to change frame rate
« on: April 24, 2016, 02:33:09 am »
Hello, I just started playing around with anim8or again, trying out the animation features since I never used them. It seems that the default frame rate for the scene is 30fps, but I am wondering how to change that? I don't see the option anywhere.


General Anim8or Forum / Complex materials
« on: November 24, 2015, 09:01:35 am »
Any support planned for more complex materials, such as procedural or even a shading language?
