It is likely the first model most Anim8or modellers have ever created, as it is taught in the introductory tutorial to demonstrate the basics of the modeler and the tools available. Layout[ edit ] Anim8or's interface is separated into four sections, each with its own tool set: Object editor - individual objects are stored and edited within the object editor.

Objects may be composed of primitives such as spheres, or more complex shapes made by extruding polygons along the z axis and adjusting the vertexes. Materials are then applied, per face if desired. The user also has the option to make morph targets for each object. Figure editor - in order to animate more complex models, they can be given a skeleton.

Users can give each "bone" the ability to rotate on all 3 axes within certain limits and attach individual objects to each bone.

Sequence editor - this is an extension of the figure editor, allowing the use of key frame animation to animate individual bones with a degree of accuracy of 0. Scene editor - elements from the three other sections are imported and arranged in the scene editor. The key frames from the sequence editor can be modified, along with other variables, such as a figure's position in 3D space or the state of a morph target.
