If you have discovered Antics for the first time having read the great tutorial in the August issue of 3D World magazine then welcome to the Antics community! We hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and have your spitfire looping round Tower Bridge!

You can download the Antics project files used in the tutorial from the 3D World site

Here is the finished article that following the tutorial will produce:


If you have any questions about the tutorial, or Antics in general, then feel free to post on our forum.

As you’re new to Antics, I can thoroughly recommend our range of video tutorials. They cover every subject in Antics from getting started and building your first set, through importing content and directing your action, right up to rendering out your final movie. Whatever area you’re working on, there’s sure to be a video tutorial to guide you through.

The version of Antics you have installed from the cover disk is our V3.1 BasePack. 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.


Antics review in 3D World magazine

April 28, 2008

The latest issue of 3D World carries a review of Antics V3.0. The magazine went to press just before Antics V3.1 was unleashed, so you can add Google SketchUp and Google 3D Warehouse to the list of features mentioned in the article. They do mention that an update will appear in their ‘Stop Press’ section on their website once they have taken a look at V3.1

We’re very happy to see Antics score an 8/10, which was awarded for our ProPack version – the free BasePack is “even better value for money”.


It’s also worth picking up a copy for the in-depth feature article on Machinima. This gives a great overview of the Machinima movement as it stands today and where it’s heading in the future. Fascinating reading!
