Anima has many system wide preferences that can be edited to fine-tune performance, define paths and set display units. To access these options go to the Main Menu and click Preferences.

  1. Default Projects Path
    Sets the path where new projects are saved. Click to set a new default location.
  2. Undo Actions / History Limit
    Sets the number of undo levels. Higher numbers will give you a larger and more flexible undo history but at the expense of increasing RAM usage.
  3. Max Scene Backups
    Sets the number of scene backups. Higher numbers gives you more security but uses more hard drive space.
  4. Max CPU Threads for Simulator
    Configures the number of CPU threads dedicated to calculating the simulation. In most cases the default Auto setting provides optimum results but you can disable this and define the number of threads manually.
  5. Max Preview Ram Buffer Size
    Configures the amount of RAM that can be used for animation previews. In most cases the default Auto setting provides optimum results but you can disable this and define the amount of RAM manually.
  6. Display System Units
    Sets the display units to either Metric (cm, m, km) or Imperial (in, ft, mi).
  7. Enable System Data Modification
    Allows you to enable or disable the modification of system wide data. Use with caution as changes to the system data set will affect all projects.
