Anim8or v0.85 Release Notes

This release of Anim8or is the first beta test of version 0.85.
The primary differences between this and the previous version,
v0.81, are new modeling tools but there are many other bug
fixes and enhancements.


V0.85 should be able to read previous versions of .an8 files.
Though the opposite is not entirely possible, it generally
should work especially for the most recent releases. Newly
added features will be ignored, of course, but shouldn't
cause other problems.

Modeling Tools

A number of new modeling tools have been added. They include:

* FRONT and BACK facing selection for points, edges and faces.
* Cut tool to slice models along a plane.
* Shell tool to give thin models thickness.
* A Bump tool to add buldges to models.
* Point Slide tool that slides points alongexisting edges.
* Subdivide Faces command to split selected faces in smaller
* Cut Edges command that splits selected edges into two.
* Connect Edge command that connects the middle of selected
edges that share a common face.
* Edge Loop Select command.
* Edge Right Select command.
* Edge Loop Cut command to split things into multiple objects
along selected edge loops.

Figure Changes

* Insert Bone command that inserts a bone as the parent or
between the children of an existing bone.
* Bone Diameter property so bones aren't all the same thickness.

Material Changes

* Environment Map texture mode for reflections.
* Cube map textures.
* Texture image invert.

Rendering Features

* Radial Fog.
* Environment Maps.
* Render depth buffer as image.
* Interactive views are closer to what a render will look like
in a number of cases.

GUI Enhancements

* GUI configuration dialog.
* Wireframe over Flat and Wireframe over SMooth options for
working views.
* Point over flat or smoth option.
* Frame and Frame Selected commands for all views, plus hot-keys
for both ("f" and "F").
* List view of objects in a view.

It looks like the 0.85 version is a "beta" version, so you have to download it from here:
