    I have an earlier version of ProAnimator. I think 4.3 and I am writing a book. I haven’t used the software in a while, but my book is 8.5 x 5.5 and I want to know if I can make a book with a spine that I can animate?

    Any suggestions or templets out there?

    Hi Nelson,

    Sure, with ProAnimator, you can create a 3D Primitive, and change it to a cube. Once you change the shape to a cube, enter the 8.5 x 5.5 dimensions, and enter a depth value as well. Then you’ll have the shape of your book. You can apply texture maps to each side of the cube to get the look of your book.

    With ProAnimator version 5, we also added the “Warp” feature. This lets you create effects such as bending or folding a piece of paper. If you’re interested, you can use the Warp effect to create a page turn animation for your book.

    P.S. With version 4.3, you can upgrade to version 4.5.1 to get all the latest bug fixes, or upgrade to version 5 for new features such as an integrated drawing window, customizable workspaces, gradient & noise shaders, object deformations/warping, and much more. The upgrade to version 4.5.1 is a free upgrade while the upgrade to version 5 is a paid upgrade.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Edward

    thanks. I haven’t played with this software in over two years. I managed to make a cube into a 6×9 and mapped the from and back of my book cover on it. I guess I need to learn a bit more to get it to do exactly what I am looking for. If there are any tutorials out there, let me know

    Hi Nelson,

    You can view our video tutorials from the link below:

    https://zaxwerks.com/training/

    Keep in mind the newer tutorials are for ProAnimator version 5, so the interface and features will be different than what is included in version 4.

    We also have more tutorials available from fellow users. You can find these tutorials from our blog page below:

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Edward
