coloring my model?

coloring my model?

coloring my model?

Hi whomever may visit this new forum for A:M
I'm new to modeling and my question may seem stupid but here it is.
If I color my model using the selection of groups as opposed to dropping materials and decals onto it.  Will those colors stay on the model as I animate it?  Someone told me otherwise and I would like to know before I continue my work.  I'm looking for an explicit tutorial on adding color to my model.  I've been to Sherwood's forest but I seem to be missing the boat.  Any help would be great. thanks!

RE: coloring my model?

I'm afraid I can't help with this one, but I have a question. Since you say you're new to modeling in A:M, I'm curious about your initial observations on modeling. Is it easy to model in A.M? And is it true that Wavefront OBJ import is no longer available in the latest version?
(except perhaps from an outside plugin maker)

RE: coloring my model?

I haven't done 3d modeling since Autocad about 4 or 5 years ago so it's all pretty new to me.  It's not so bad once you get the hang of how to model with splines.  I find the hardest part is learning how to correctly set up bones for animating characters.
there is an OBJ export/import that Arthur Walasek made.  You can get it here (v9.x) (v8.x)

Also, if you really want to know what's going on, you should check out this forum.  It is very informative and the people are really cool.

if you go to www.hash.com, you can sign up for the forum and get some real info.  I'm too new to be of any use just yet.
see ya
