low poly models and file size
« on: July 30, 2008, 10:49:19 am »

ok..i have been using anim8or for quite some time now, and  i noticed that most of my meshes are way too large..i may be doing something very wrong here( i don't consider myself an expert though ;D ), in any case i would appreciate any suggestions or tips from u guys helping me out with tips on how to limit the file size of me models...and i would like to know if there's a way u could use jpeg or gif images to create a model... thanks in advance  ::)

well images to make models,closest thing would be to use a ref image.
and to make files smaller,make them less complex,les polys,less kilos.

I don't know about the file size....Are there any textures? Or multiple objects? Are they rigged?

Also, with the reference image issue, you could take a look at this... http://www.members.lycos.nl/jonim8or/refpic_tut1.html
