Animations

Post by Trevor » Tue Sep 22, 2015 4:34 am

I have been given some animations by a fellow modder that I am converting into dccs.

Every animation that I have added for monsters has 8 directions saved in the following order. SW, NW, NE, SE, S, W, N, E. (8 directions, every 45 degrees)

I have an animation that has N, NNW, NW, NWW, W, SWW, SW, SSW, S. (every 22.5 degrees) I have the software to get the other directions by taking the necessary mirror images and reorganizing the order.

Two questions.
Can monsters have more than 8 directions? I don't think they can but I'm not sure. If so, what is the order the directions need to be saved in?
