PC Plus magazine have just published the second part of their Antics tutorial in their August edition. If you have read the article and are using Antics for the first time then welcome!
You will no doubt find our community forum of great use. If you have any questions or if you would like some feedback on a work in progress then you can be sure of a warm welcome on the forum. In fact, we would love to see any videos you create in Antics. So if you post one up to our Showcase, it doesn’t matter how short or simple it is, then we will upgrade your forum status to Budding Director!
Don’t worry if you’re not yet ready to create a video, the forum will still be a great help to you. The PC Plus tutorial goes into great detail on the subject of importing content from Google SketchUp and the Google 3D Warehouse. Well, there’s an entire room on the forum dedicated to tips and tricks for importing SketchUp content, including a great tutorial which explains how to animate a custom character.
As I mentioned when the first tutorial was published last month, there is a copy of Antics V3.1 BasePack free on the PC Plus cover disk. All BasePack users are entitled to download our free Starter Content Pack. This contains hundreds of models including characters and a variety of props to get you started.
You can download the pack from our store here. All you need to do to get the pack is register on our community forum, then post in this thread to let us know you want the pack so we can enable the free download for you.
If you have any questions specifically about the PC Plus tutorial, then please post in the dedicated thread here.
