Anim8or

Post by Austin » Tue Oct 16, 2007 5:46 pm

I'm cheap, I like free stuff. Say hello to free 3D non-complex if you read a guide program. Called Anim8or it is a simple 3D program with fairly good results if you are not going for anything to fancy.

Thanks. I was always interested in 3D modeling, but only so I could create simple objects to paste on my static 2D images. Hope this will help.

No problem m8, also if you don't like this program there are quite a few free 3D applications out there.

Google some of these if you don't like anim8or.
Blender (free professional 3d program, but hard to use), Wings3D (I use this one a lot actually), Google Sketchup (good for new people to 3D), CB Model Pro (crap but works)

Great! The first 3d animator I understand :P. Easy to use and good results. Thanks! I am going to use it!

Glad you like it, I suggest you take the hand tutorial. Go to the main page, click tutorials and then click on the hand tutorial. When I first found this program thats the first tutorial I took. Really helps to explain the program. If you just want all the knowledge at once download the anim8or guide from the download page.

anim8or is pretty good, I've been using it for about a year or so now. No real complaints.

I tried out the egg plant tutorial. Man, this program rocks! I tried Wings3D before, but it crawled like a slug on my PC and it wasn't intuitive. anim8or is a dream come true!

Once more, thanks for this tip.

Glad to hear you like Anim8or!
As for Wings3D in my opinion the program has great results but the interface is crappy. You have to know all these keyboard shortcuts and certain button presses to be able to operate the program.

All the Best,
Austin
