  1. I'm using A:M 19.0 f. I am trying to tune up an old model. When I try to adjust the bias handles on cp's they behave in a bizarre manner. They lengthen and distort and won't properly respond to control of the mouse. Anybody have these difficulties?

    Getting used to V19

    Hi Robcat, You have always been very helpful. It's too late for the contest, but it just so happens that my project involves a model of a plane.
  3. It's been a while since I've been on this Forum. Hi everybody. Well my CD broke with my version 15 on it so I got the 64 bit download version and some things have changed.I can deal with that, but I'm having a problem. I try to apply a decal and AM crashes when I hit apply. It does this when the application method is Planar. It doesn't crash when I apply in cylindrical mode, and of course, it is extremely distorted and quite unusable. Anybody have any clues?

    Window Tabs

    It used to be that when I had multiple objects open, there would be tabs at the bottom of the viewing window that would let me easily switch between them. Since I re-installed the tabs are no longer there. How do I get them back?

    Long Time No See

    Rodney, Robcat, and Mark (Legendary Creator of the Legendary Errol Flemm. . . . . . .Legendary, I say!!!) Three of my top dozen {or two} Forum members. It's good to hear your voices again! (And I DO hear them. It helps drown out those "other" darker voices. Thanks for your always helpful help. I couldn't remember Mark Scodacek's user name nor remember how to spell his last name. (Sorry Mark) I'll be using that generator so thanks for the link, Mark. I'll be checking out your tute, Robcat, and if it's as good as all your others I'll be up and running in no time. As per your suggestion, Rodney, I'll start a thread in the WIP forum. This all has a "Homecoming" feel to it.

    Long Time No See

    WOW! Hello folks. I've been away from the forum for a while, and things have sure changed up while I've been gone. I'm using version 15.0J+ There have been a couple of new versions released. Is it possible to purchase a new CD version or is the only way to upgrade the yearly download option? Although I haven't been animating, I've been using A:M as an artistic tool to create "photo" borders. Before I left I was fairly confident in my modeling skills but stalled out learning rigging. I've decided that I want to attempt to animate a short piece, and to do this I'm gonna need to call upon the generosity that I've always found with the members of this forum.I'll need a little help with two things: (to start with, at least) 1. there used to be a water motion generator that Mark(?)created and donated to the A:M community 2. How to make a lightning bolt. I would appreciate any guidance and help. Thanks in advance Myron
  7. I am so saddened to hear of Paul's passing. My heart is filled with so much to say, but the weight of the news has stifled the saying of it. We'll all miss you Paul.

    Attention Jason!

    Jason, For some reason Gene is not able to log into the forum, and he asked me to have you send him a new password to him. Thanks.
  9. Life has kept me from the forum much more than I like and I haven't been keeping up. One of the things keeping me busy is working on this project. I've decided that I can only absorb so much new stuff in each project, but I AM making progress. John thanks for your help with the newton stuff, but I decided to do it the old fashioned way. I got the bitmapplus material working, (needs tweaking, I know) and did the breaking apart in an action. I know it isn't as smooth as it should be but its a start and can be tweaked as well. Thank you all for your generous help in getting me this far. sDissolving_Logo.mov
  10. Get out your galoshes, it's gonna get mushy. Nancy and Rob, (flipped a coin for the billing order) as well as a slew of others, from the first moment I set my digital foot on this forum, have shown such extreme kindness and generosity such as you have just demonstrated on this thread. I have made a lot of progress with this amazing software and having still only scratched the surface, am in awe of you guys. Your CONTINUAL help to all of us who are constantly asking is appreciated more than you can know. From the bottom (and top) of my heart, THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO. We now return you to our regularly scheduled folderol.
  11. I don't understand the "Bake" concept and at this moment trying to comprehend it might make my head explode. I did render out some Darktree images and got them into Bitmap Plus Materials. I was thinking that the [/b]Blend[/b] property was animatable, but evidently I was wrong. Isn't there a way I could just animate the decals? I seem to remember seeing something a while back on that.
  12. Thanks for this. That is wonderful. I'll bet the refill cartridges for that printer are a bit spendy tho.
  13. Thanks again, Nancy. I've had a chance to play around with this. This was a feature of A:M that I've had no knowledge or experience with. You have opened up a whole new world for me. Some days my ignorance seems so vast that you could fill encyclopedias with it. Myron
  14. You had this reply ready and waiting, didn't you, Nancy? Because you KNEW I'd be asking (begging?) for it. Thank you so very much, I believe you've given me the necessary information from which to extrapolate success. Thanks
