• A lot of questions get asked and answered in the animata-users mailing list. Sign up here. You can also check out the mailing list archives here.
  • How can I make the output window fullscreen?
Click on the output window and press 'space'.

  • What's the difference between the binary and source-code versions of Animata?
The source code version has some additions and fixed compared to the binary version 003.
You can read the main additions in the CHANGES file or more detail in the commit log messages here.

  • How do you compile Animata from the source-code?
There is a (very) brief set of instructions here.
More detailed instructions for Windows and OSX can be found in the readme file here.

  • Why doesn't the model move when I click and try to move a joint/bone (in the Skeleton tab)?
You need to tick 'play simulation' in the Automata tab - otherwise the joint/bone is moved independently of the model.
