Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Re: A list of ideas for anim8or
« on: October 14, 2008, 09:23:14 pm »
maya has this feature called nurb premetives!
while polygon premitives are build up of edges, nurb premitives are build up of isoprams which is basicly curves!
this saves alot of time when modelig since you dont have to reposition a billion og vertecies, but just a couple to make round shapes for a head for example.

also theres stuff like cloth, liquids, and particle generation, which i really miss in animator!

i know maya is profesional software, and anim8or is a freeware programmed by a single person (amazing steve :O) so i may be asking for to much.

to compare with maya again: after i tried maya, i realised how important the shading is for the final result! even the most ugly model, can look photorealistic with the right shading, and light!
anim8or is really lacking of advanced shading/lighting features!

also, since directX is the most common 3D SDK, it would be cool if you could transelate anim8or into directX, cause i would really like to play around with some source code, and i know pretty much nothing about openGL.... maybe its kinda unrealistic because much of those here doesnt code, and because it would take a pretty long time to transate a program like this, but it would be cool anyway :D

sounds interesting ^^
when will you reveal the "big secret" ? when you are sure everybody in the whole forum voted? :P

does the lava lamp look realistic? :O
and what exactly is floorplan3D?

i may need glasses cause i cant see the difference.
but the 3. one seems to have more depth for some reason :S

no problem! but if you are completely new, you may have some problems with it.
you should start out by clicking the beginer tutorials link first, to get a knowledge of the different tools.
a human body/head, can be verry hard to make, and especially if you are new! so start out by something more simple

good luck


there you go! video tutorials on how to model a full female body... or.. maybe some of the parts a missing, but i guess you have to figure that out by yourself ;)

how about:

"once in a country far far awa... on the internet, there was a 3D modeling program avalable. this program seemed to be much cheaper, and much easier to learn than other programs! many people started using this program and made many great models.
one day an evil guy named Creater-of-expensive-modeling-programs, wanted tried to destroy this cheap *cough* free *cough* program by... eeh... doing some verry evil act (could't think of any) to make the program completely unknow among people.
therefor a exhibition was made, to show ppl what amasing things you could do with this program.
but you was the only person stupid enough to belive the story, so you are walking around alone, in this strange world of 3 Demensional art."

think that will do? :P

ChristopherT, i agree that anim8or is easy to learn compared to many other 3D modeling programs, and i got most of the features down.
my problem is just that i have never been good at being artistic creative, and i dont know in wich situations i should use the different  tools.
but thanks anyway xD

good luck on the lights

i agree that it would a fun project, and i think it has potential (maybe).
but i think that the "Anim8or the Movie" should be done before starting any other big projects. maybe anim8or studios (isnt it called that? to lazy to check) can take it up as there next project ...
but until then i guess you will just have to make the story :P

i justed finnished the render engine, and right now i am cleaning up my code, but then ill get started with the physics engine.
and i am not sure what the game is gonna be about, but since i wanted to dedicate my first game to anim8or, i think ill make a big interactive exhibition with anim8or models.
where you are able to drive the cars, fly in the planes, and so on.
or does that sound too borring?
