Moved from "Unreal Wiki General" to "Modeling."

Right start off by downloading or buying a modeling program like max 5, maya, softimage or milkshape(being the cheepest). The then download that ut2003 player model rigs, and start editing them. Good animation tutorials should come with the package you chose to download. Learning to animate is not easy, and will take you a good few weeks to even get the basics right.

u cant 2d animate a 3d model...2d animation is old skool animation or flash.

1st thing I'd do is goto www.polycount.com or www.3dbuzz.com

beyoundunreal seems to be more of a coding forum rather then a model/animation forum.

Ok you see that little guy down there with the shock rifle making a shock combo.... alright if anyone has played mega man x (doubt anyone has :/ ) Am trying to reproduce the dashing animation/sprite effects in that game and basically replace ut2k3's hoping forward animation (you know when u double tap forward or back.... ect) with a dashing animation mega man x style.

If you are making a Mario mutator or mod, you may want to check out Rachel "AngelMapper" Cordone's site (www.angelmapper.com). She made a mario mutator that might be of interest to you.

Does anyone know where I can find those animation rigs?

I always see people recommending milkshape, and after playing with it a while ago it seemed kind of easy to use. But has anyone actually used it in ut2003? I'm not sure if .psk and .psa files are even used anymore and whenever I see someone as a modeller what program they use it's always 3dsmax.
