it appears the shading and lighting on the decal is a mirror image of the actual object. So when I apply it stands out, rotating the decal does not change the shading or lighting.

Im stumped.

I am trying to apply decal to sphere.

The problem is how it renders the transparency of the decal  texture:

As you can see the transparency comes out strange.  Ideas?

And thank yall I know Im posting a lot of questions bit I am almost fully back up to speed.

BTW I shared the link to your website on the game engines forums Im a member of.

I appreciate all your help and consistency!

HI just another few objects I made in Anim8tor as game assets.

Just showing how useful anima8tor is for game assets.

I can run the scene.  How do I run the script?  I dont see it in the file.

Attached are my latest attempts modeling a shooter tower- non animated.

options >> turned off grid

I attached the image to centered on origin,  then set orthogonal, then clicked f to center frame, unselected  dbl clicked group and changed property Y 0 then 45, then 80 etc...

render object image as imag+alpha, save as png

Im happy with these results.

Thank you that might work as well!

Worked perfectly.  Now on to figuring out how to set the poses at same size and angle for each cardinal direction.

I remember you added a pivot point to make this easier or at least fixed a pivot crash bug.

Now I need to look at scripting and see if my chemo addled brain can make sense of it.

Ill try this. I, trying to eliminate having to manually delete the background from png renders to import in 2d engines.

General Anim8or Forum / Cancer wiped out the past two years but Im back.

The last post I read here was on dec 27. 2018-  then the next two years have been hell as I fell under the effects of stage 3B colon cancer and the chemo. Tomorrow is my last chemo if I am cancer free.

Last time I was on here I was using this program as an alternative to sketchup on linux for my woodshop.  Well my woodshop hasnt been open for more than a year. Lost much of my equipment to the bank etc.  You know the whole cancer spiel.  But I lived!  And I am able to code and create graphic art again!

I began developing games again. Released one game about a month ago, have been selling game assets.   The current project I am on requires about 90 models.  I am developing in Defold and Godot.  Defold can use dae models and Godot can use several.  Both can use png renders.

So what is the current build is 1.00b the latest version or is there a later build?

Any cool new developments?

I believe my last conversation I looked up we were discussing how to do a batch rendering of orthoganal views in 8 cardinal points of direction.  That will be one of my first things I need to learn as well as relearning the software. 

Thanks for being here.  This type of modeling program is needed.


General Anim8or Forum / Export as cutlist?

For ten years I have used Sketchup for my woodshop, but now I  do not own a windows computer and sketchup does not work well on my system.  but I can model very fast on your program. I noticed for the first time today that you have cad notation.


Can you export a list of objects with their x,y,z sizes, material names and object names?
