Anim8or is a free open-source 3D animation and modeling software by R. Steven Glanville, an award winning software engineer at NVidia Technologies Corporation. Currently in alpha version 0.980 (version 1.0), it's a low cost, open source program with many useful tools that would otherwise be expected in top-of-the-line, professional-grade software. In short, Anim8or is the ideal solution for anyone who wishes to learn 3D animation and modeling from the comfort of their home or college dorm. For just a few bucks, you can get the best out of this powerful and versatile software. You'll find that animating with Anim8or is much easier than before and your design will turn out much more realistic and polished.
As discussed in the last paragraph, Anim8or's greatest strength is its use of Open Source software which allows it to integrate very well with different kinds of hardware such as computers, smartphones and even game consoles. This means that you don't have to use any kind of converter to convert your animation or model into whatever format the software accepts. Instead, all you need to do is to plug it into the relevant cable or connect it to a USB port on your computer. You can then use your computer's sound card to output the generated 3d graphics. To make it easier for you to start modeling with anim8or, here is an easy step-by-step guide on how to get started with the program.
To get started with Anim8or, first download and install the MS Windows drivers. Then launch the MS Windows program and click on the "Anim8or" icon. Finally, click "New" to create a new project from scratch. This is how you will start modeling with anim8or - by creating a new 3d graphics, importing an existing texture from a picture or a computer program, adding an actor with basic movements, changing the hairstyle of the actor, changing his voice and finally putting the character into the scene with some simple lighting effects or background music.
