I created a "hockey puck" in ProAnimator using the Primitive Object tool but I cannot put a bevel on the edges. It will not allow me to bevel it. Why?

On page 491 of the manual it says to apply the bevel in the "Edge Style List". With a primitive object there is no such option! I typed in a couple of letters and sure enough, the Edge Style List appeared for that.

Hi Ted,

You can't alter the edge of a primitive object. What you could do is create your puck using an IL file.(A simple circle would do)

Here is an example for you:

Salut.

Serge, thank you for the files. I am trying to work with them. I resized it to look like a puck but am having trouble getting the textures in the correct sides. The logo wants to wrap around the face and sides too. The knurling is good but so far I haven't been able to get it where it belongs. You certainly are very fast and I really appreciate your help.

I can't help but wonder. On page 491 of the manual (User Guide 4.0) it talks about making basic shapes inside ProAnimator and puting a radius on it. "Rounded Edge Cube" for example.

Thanks to Serge, I now have a very nice looking hockey puck with a logo on it and nurled edges.
