Looks quite good too :)
| Wowsa, cool modeling apps are popping up like wildfire. It's getting so I can't wave my arms without hitting a new free modeling tool. Now there need to be a few more good texturing tools, and software for animation. |
| i second that JH, we need more cool free animation tools too. |
| Yes,cool free animation tools that do all the animation for you with commands like 'Do Anim Run' would be nice....-.- don't know where to start with modelling let alone animation. |
| Well, I wouldn't go that far. |
| Here is the feature list.|
SDS modelling, with sharp edges.
Blob modelling, with ellipse, 3D splines, 3D meshes.
2D/3D curves: mix of straight lines and splines, Read TTF font, Boolean operations.
Toolboxes on meshes, faces, edges and vertices, texture projection.
Four Texture projectors: plane, cylinder, sphere and uv.
Procedural texture generated by scripts.
Morphing and skinning.
Export to: 3DS, OBJ, Direct X, DXF, VRML, Virtual Light, SunFlow.
Import from: 3DS, LWO, OBJ, VRML, DXF.
Export to POV, RENDERMAN. ·
All scene data (meshes, animation, texture...) saved in one '.3de' file.
| last time I tried this I wasn't very impressed. Could be that I was looking for something that can export animated 3ds and this wasn't capable of doing so, not sure anymore.|
Then again if you work with 3dsmax, even an old version, it's hard to find something good.
There is a free animation tool for blitz, PACEMAKER. Additionally I'd like to mention that "Liveforms" was on some cover CDs some time ago. That App is capable of doing exactly this: assign animations to models, eg. Run! or Dance! etc.
| Is this thing free? |
| yep, |
It was free for non comercial in teh past...but...while I am not totally sure, I think I read some time ago he might have changed the license to free also for comercial projects. check it, anyway.
| It keeps getting better too. Now called Albatross3D.|
