Make each letter a seperate object (you can make them using the text tool)

You can then put them into the scene mode and animate them seperately.

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / Re: Anim8or and Windows 7

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bits + Anim8or v0.97d = no problem for me !

That's good I'm thinking of getting Win7 but I wouldn't get it if Anim8or didn't work on it.

The mirror in Anim8or is just a material.
Make sure you have v.97 then in the material editor
click attributes and enter new
in the top box type "specular" (without quotes)
in the bottom box type "reflection" (without quotes)
You can then edit the specular value in the material editor to adjust the amount of reflection.

For soft shadows in scene mode create a light double click it
click advanced
check the 'cast shadows' box
select raytrace and check the 'soft' box
then change the size box to about 3 (the larger this value the softer the shadows)

I use the top view as well as it's hard to tell how far your object has moved using that method unless you are in the perspective view.

I might try it but I think I'll prefer the Cryengine2 editor as it's quite easy to use. Still anything free's always appreciated.

What OS are you using? It could be a software error.

When in anim8or press Enter and the material toolbar will appear next to the toolbar on the left. To edit the material double-click the "new" square and you'll find the material editor.
To move objects along the z axis click the move button and use the right mouse button the move a selected object.

This looks really good, I especially like the textures.

If you want better quality try rendering with ART (version 0.97d) with ambient occlusion enabled and a high AA.

If you want faster rendering, get a new CPU or wait for a newer version of Anim8or with multithreading. :)

The filters are just semitransparent objects with a high specular value, which can make them look like sunrays or lens glare, depending on their shape.

Nice I'd never seen that before, might try that myself.

There's no way to do it in Anim8or, but you could probably do it in an art program by merging two pictures together. You'd have to experiment.

You can export the model files as 3ds/obj which tend to work with most other programs, but you can't export the whole file only the models.

What PC / OS have you got.

Also there's no need to install Anim8or, you should just be able to click on the .exe and run the program.
