General Anim8or Forum / Re: Creating edge loops

Thanks, I never thought of that. It's not too late since I am still using the software after getting the new book about it.

I am planning on getting this book when I get paid in a few days, I just had a few questions. Where is it shipped from and what are the dimensions of the book? I always liked larger computer books so I can lay them flat on the desk as I read them and use the computer at the same time.


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

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.


Yes, it appears to be fixed. Thanks!

However I want to be careful and not make the basic operation too complex because that can make it quite difficult for new users.

How about selectable "modes". The default is "basic" mode where the tools available are common ones new people will be using, basic usage tools and "advanced" mode shows more special purpose tools that the average new person will not be using right away, but in any mode all keyboard shortcuts are available. Just a thought.

That was pretty much what I had in mind, or an "execute command on completion" option, to either call a media player or a batch processor for the frames rendered.

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.

This might be off topic a bit, but how old is the original splash screen? I don't ever remember seeing another, and I've been using anim8or for ever.

This should come as no surprise, but for my take on it, I'mma prioritize making it look cute.

I personally can't wait to see your entry :)

that's awesome news. Finally a reason to create something, other than just "doodling" like I usually do.

What about a little competition for a new splash screen for the new alpha version 1 for anim8or? ??? of course it would have to be made with the latest beta version 1 and proof of anim8or files would have to be made available.  ;)

I never thought about that, but this is actually a good idea, I can think of two other 3D programs that holds a compo to have its users make the next splash screen (Animation:Master and Blender).

Worth a thought.

Can someone please explain the difference in the configuration between "Images" and "Textures" directory settings?
