Default Re: Animation?

Animation is something we will look at seriously in the near future.

Lots of people want animation but there are different types and uses for it - There are many questions that need to be asked before implementation starts. This forum is the ideal place for us to learn from the users.

Do you want bone or object based animation?
What do you want to do with the animations? Output to a video file? Output to a renderer? Output to a game format?

The correct answer is not necessarily - "yes please, everything would be great.".

Other software has more specific uses (e.g. primarily for games), whereas AC3D is a general modeling tool - used from data visualisation to games models - so we need to determine the best way to go before we go there.
