Add the button Tools->Customize->Commands->Manipulator -> "Show Groups, where the CP is included" to the toolbar, or "Reset Toolbars" For new installations it's default in the manipulator toolbar. Works only for single selected cp's. OSX latest supported version is OSX 10.13.6, because my mac can't be updated to a newer OSX version

    The library printed my Sphinx j model. Here are a few pictures. As you see, it still did not print perfectly, but I am happy with the result. Thanks again to everyone who helped. Your ideas, illustrations, and video clips really taught me a lot.

    I decided to hold off on the laptop, but have been working to install Windows on my Mac via Boot Camp today. A much easier process than the one I remember from the olden days (which involved burning an install disc and lots of hoops to jump through.) Everything seems to be fine, so far. I've set up a Dropbox folder that I can use to share files with my Mac and I think it'll be good for my productivity to have a kind of distraction free workspace when I'm working in A:M.

    This question came up in Live Answer Time today and I thought I would post the official word from Hash (link is to store page): Can A:M use multiple cores? A:M is currently not fully multi-core-optimized. However A:M is able through Netrender (included for free in v16.0 and up) to use multiple cores for rendering.  OpenMP is used to utilize multiple cores for several operations. More operations are altered to use multiple cores in each update.  Since A:M is a rendering application, it is recommended to use a CPU as fast as possible to decrease rendering time. So if you have an 8 core system, base AM may not make full use of all 8 cores however if you pick up an additional 4 or 10 netrender nodes for the nominal cost of $10 or $15, you can utilize the other cores as background render nodes. So those of you contemplating Threadripper/Ryzen/Ryzen 3000 updates may find this useful info. *EDIT: I should add, most programs are not fully massively-threaded aware yet. I expect that to change over time, but for right now Netrender is the best way to make use of those extra cores.

    It took a ton of work, but it's done. A:M Stills is now here and almost all of the images where saved. I'm going to look in to if there is a way to users to 'claim' the image. But I have a lot of work before I can do that I think it will have to be done in the DATABASE it's self. But enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!11 https://forums.hash.com/gallery/category/7-am-stills/

    I might be interested. It has been years since I've done any programming, but if it applies to computer graphics I'd be interested. I've actually been thinking about learning Python but C++ might be more relevant.

    Color me intrigued. I'm very interested in learning C++. This not just from the standpoint of plugins but also standalone programs/utilities. If I had a 'plugin' to champion creating for A:M it might be some form of integration with FFMPEG so that various additional output formats could be generated. Not sure if that really fits the plugin category but... that's what immediately comes to mind.

    Solution: Ok to everyone that helped with this problem. I got it fixed. I opened my MacKeeper/Default Apps/searched 'hxt'/ assigned AM to default app to open....BINGO! Checked it in every version ALL WORKING. So thank you to all of you for the help.

    An alternative to the standard chor paths... We can also use any spline from any model in the chor as your path. Create a new (empty) model and drag/drop that into the chor. Draw a spline and edit that path as desired in the Chor. A reason I prefer modeled paths is that they can be considerably more complex than standard Chor paths. Under the hood Chor paths are just specialized models with limited parameters.

    Hit the "A" key and then draw your path. Hope that helps, Rusty. path_tool_example.mp4

    I fully realize the reason for the snark but based on their paper these guys are doing it algorithmically. Something that an experienced A:M user could do in an hour (or more) will someday be done by anyone … in a few minutes … on their phones … just for lols

    I'm wondering if there will be a new one. I'm constantly finding myself making or looking for new scenery, especially buildings. I for one, would be happy to contribute some models. Is there enough interest in the community?

    Wait, so what they're saying is you make a 3d model based on a subject in an image, rig it, weight it, texture it using the original photo as a reference and then make an animation out of it. That's amazing! Revolutionary! Its never been done before, Nobel prizes all around.

    Welcome back, Warlock! If you just need the OBJ to be in a Chor and move around as solid object, don't import it into a model window, import as a Prop. That will import in a few seconds. If you really want to convert a polygon model to splines, because you really want to edit it as splines, A:M gets very slow at creating CPs once you get above a few thousand and most glamorous OBJs have many more vertices than that. It will be slow, but i have left OBJ imports to run overnight and it did finish eventually. New in version 19 is "Stick to Surface" that lets you draw new splines on the surface of a model or a Prop. You can quickly import an OBJ as a Prop then use it as your template to create a new, properly-splined A:M model.

    You probably have noticed that Z-buffered Kleig light soft shadows (most of what we use) are not rendering soft. Shadow cast on Ground Plane... However, it turns out that models can shadow themselves correctly. So... Use the Grid wizard to add a flat plane to your model and give it a bone that is independent from everything else in your model. In the Chor, constrain that bone to the Ground, then set the Ground to OFF. You can scale that bone to scale the plane to be as large as you need. Shadow cast on plane that is part of model... Of course this won't work when you have more than one model in a chor. For that, take your project to V18 and render there.

    Found this with my metal detector in the middle of a corn field. At first I thought it was a good sized gold ring by the tone it came in and range on my detector. was about 8" down. Might have a high nickel content or maybe rhodium? Doesn't seem to have much iron since it doesn't stick to a magnet at all. Anyone ever find anything like this? Do you get them authenticated some how? Might make a cool pendant as long as it isn't radioactive
