From Tom, in another thread...

 

PS- Rob, I had an unrelated question...(and since you are very knowledgeable about AM I thought I would piggyback on this post).

I am trying to load a series of 32 bit tga files to be used as animated sprites and AM only loads the first image in the series in the sprite pull down menu.

 

I am using 18.0o AVX. Any idea what might be going wrong?

Thanks for any assistance...

 

 

I'm not sure what AVX is.

 

Are you checking "Import as an animation or a sequence of images" when you choose your targa series?

I had one other question Rob...

 

Do sprites always face the camera? or can they be made to spin?

Many thanks for any info...

Tom

Sprites can rotate on the axis that faces the camera but they always face the camera.

You might be able to make a sprite that appears to spin.

 

Alternatively, small pieces of cloth can be dropped in a scene and fully turn in 3 dimensions..
