How do you use scripts?
« on: November 12, 2016, 08:52:51 pm »

I read the website but I don't understand it says hit configure and then copy your script?

Are we suppose to save the script to word or notepad or just copy the entire script and past it into the scripts tab inside of the confirguration panel in Anim8or

Define the Scripts directory in the File→Configuration dialog,
Check the "Preload Scripts" box, and
Copy the script into the Scripts directory. Make sure it has the file extension .a8s or it won't install.
This is what I read on the scripting page.

I don't get it I'm trying to use the OBJ script because I want to save model as an obj

This is script I want

Anim8or has the ability to save as .obj already, by going to Object->Export and selecting the file type.

However, for future reference, you basically do as the instructions say.

  • Make a folder to hold your scripts.
  • Place the .a8s script files into that folder
  • Select that folder in File->Configuration
  • Make sure "Preload Scripts" and "Script Console" are enabled
  • Restart Anim8or. Scripts that should preload will preload. The Script Console window will show which ones loaded.
  • For export scripts, you go to Object->Export and it'll appear in the file type drop down menu
