A great way to begin the new year! THANK YOU.

Really nice features and interface/easy-to-understand controls.

Should satisfy long awaited needs. The demo is well explained.

Could Scenes be generated? Export to movie formats or images (jpg, gif, etc.)?

Have scenes created at specified intervals along the camera path (eg., at 10% intervals or intervals at a specified distance).

Great to see the beta. It is good timing since we prepare a new release too.
I always appreciate how detailed and well thought your feature implementations are!

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for creating such ingenius tool, now I would like to ask if there is any way to make it render at cloud, it would be a game changer for me as a low spec pc user. Thanks

Unfortunately, this is not under control from Animator. It could be done by the rendering software if it interfaces to Animator (via a dedicated API). In a next release, I will try to improve the rendering time for VRay 5, because there are new features.

Thanks Fredo, amazing work.

Just one thing, will you be re-implementing the aspect ratio buttons.
I miss just hitting 16:9 and changing one value..
Bit lazy I know.. :)

Cheers.

I am still experimenting with this excellent plugin - many thanks.
For animating camera I can only see two real options - Tracking object or rotating around object.
Is it possible, or will be possible, to have camera follow a path? Two options would be useful, either looking ahead, or turning left/right up/down.

In a post from Treadshot A1, Dec 29 2016 earlier version, he mentions camera path option of bezier.
Has that option now gone.
Best wishes

Camera Path is on my plan. It's a little bit longer than planned actually.

Not sure what it is... and probably not related to Animator.
