I got OpenFx the other day ... and today (Sunday 28th October) I have now finally printed out the basic manual and tutorials so I will start having a go with this ( though anim8or will be my main Modeller!)

So far I am impressed with all the effects that can be got with this piece of software.

Animation effects include dissolve, fall, flap, modulate,shake, spring, squash,twist,warp,explode,wave, water.

There are post processing effects that can be added like blur,pixelete, lens flare, halo etc

so I will start having a go this week coming just to see whats possible ( I am looking for a good model explode for Wastelands!) rolleyes.gif

PS Here`s some examples I posted on Youtube

That submarine scene is really cool!

I don't know anything about OpenFX. Is it another program like Anim8or, or a support program for different aspects?

Hi arik ...OpenFx is like anim8or however the effects that can be generated with it are allegedly superior to Anim8or there are only two screens an animation screen and a designer (no figure editor or sequence editor!) skeletons can be built from within the designer and there is also a robot mode.

I have just printed out the tut sheet and the basic manual so I`ll be going over it shortly just to find out how powerful it is !

It is free anfd there is scope to add Plugins with it ( obviously you must know programming ) and the source code for the program is available.

Oh and it does Raytracing as well if you look at one of the samples I put up on Youtube the robotic dog has reflections in the ground!
