    "Great tool highly recommended!"

    September 22, 2013   |   By mootrix

    Version: Anim8or 0.9

    Pros

    Simple user interface and easy to use, great for beginners!
    Runs on almost any Windows computer under the sun, even computers that are 10 years and older!
    Perhaps the greatest 3D modelling and animation program created by one person!
    Supports scripts downloadable from the website, to allow even more functionality.
    Requires no installation (can carry in USB stick) and tiny file size (under 3MB)
    Its more powerful than it looks, you'll have to read the manual to find out what it can really do.

    Cons

    Hasn't been updated in quite some time, it unclear if it will ever be updated.
    Can be very slow to render animations.
    The GUI isn't the most modern looking one.

    Summary

    For what it is, Anim8or is very impressive, Its amazing how 1 person could create such a powerful program and keep the file size to a minimum (version 0.97 is 2MB!) If you want to learn about modelling and animation this is probably your best bet, at least in the beginning. And like any program that you start using always read the manual, it will help you tremendously. Don't underestimate this little guy.

    "The right app don't come along everyday..."

    March 01, 2013   |   By PARRISHNELSON

    Version: Anim8or 0.9

    Pros

    For object creation, Anim8or is better than almost all the other programs. Extrusions are simple to perform! Start a project and save it as a Wavefront OBJ.
    There are scripts (plugins) available to add useful tools to the toolbar.

    Cons

    2006 is ever further away. Ancient program for XP users and so on. Or Vista users, if you go to the developer's website and download version 0.97b. The Anim8or website also has a download of the 0.95 version for Windows 7.
    And similar to Daz3D, you'll have to click a toolbar button to pan & drag your view of the object.

    Summary

    The Pdf documentation that comes with the program is great at explaining how to use the tools! You'll be playing with a mesh in minutes instead of hours. Steve Glanville, the developer, did an excellent job of authoring a production level application.

    ""Just right!""

    July 05, 2010   |   By Hart-Jacquez

    Version: Anim8or 0.9

    Pros

    Anim8or is easy, simple, and capable of good rendering with time.

    Cons

    Not quite as powerful as such programs like Blender, and is sometimes slow. On Vista, Anim8or occasionally crashed but its auto-save feature helps.

    "Would give it 10 stars if I could!!"

    August 26, 2008   |   By hfguide

    Version: Anim8or 0.9

    Pros

    1. Very robust app perfect for beginners to 3D modeling
    2. Very lightweight (not bloated and doesn't slow computer down to a crawl)
    3. Easy learning curve
    4. User friendly

    Cons

    GUI could be streamlined a little bit to make workflow easier

    Summary

    If you're an absolute newbie to 3D modeling and looking for an easy, yet highly functional program to use, I can't recommend Anim8or enough. It's the perfect app to cut your tooth on and learn all the ins and outs of modeling without being overwhelmed with a gajillion menu items, palettes and cryptic functions that take forever to learn. No, it doesn't offer a lot of the snazzy stuff that you'd get in a high end program, but it's so robust that you can get a lot of mileage out of this program for your pet projects without the need for one. So... two thumbs up from me!
