Kinemac 1.9 is a 3D Real Time Animation Software for OS X. It allows you to create your own professional 3D and 2D animations with the utmost simplicity. And the results will blow you away.
Kinemac 1.9 is easy. Just drag your images, texts, movies, songs, SVG vectorial logo, Quartz Compositions and 3D models onto the Kinemac 1.9 stage to get them into your animation. Or add the built-in objects as cubes, cylinders, spheres, tubes, pies, rectangles, disks, 2D and 3D Text... Then apply a pair of keyframes to the object to animate it and you are done.
You can play your animation in real time, export it to a QT QuickTime movie, export it to a series of still images or create a stand-alone Player application to freely distribute to your audience. You can learn how to do all of that in less than a day.
Key Features and Benefits
- Kinemac lets you control the timing of the objects through a Sprites console. Each object is represented by a sprite channel in a hierarchical table so you can establish the starting point and the duration of an object or group of objects simply dragging and resizing its sprite along the channel. This way you can synchronize the movement of an object with another object and with the soundtrack(s). In addition, the Sprite console lets you create, delete and move the key frames as they were just "Tabs" on a Text Ruler, so you’re free to create, delete and move key frames whenever you decide to speed up or slow down a given movement at a given time
- You can quickly create objects like cubes, cylinders, spheres, pies, cones, torus, tubes, rectangles, disks, strips and pipes... Furthermore you can extrude or revolve SVG files (made with Illustrator, e.g. your company 2D logo) and import 3D models saved as OBJ and 3DS. On the surfaces of any object you can apply image textures and movie textures, and set various attributes as color, transparency, reflection, specular and shininess effects. Importing files in Kinemac is as easy as dragging and dropping the files onto the Stage window.
- With Kinemac you will animate the objects on the stage by easily setting key frames. You can create, modify, copy, paste and delete a single key frame or a group of key frames with the utmost freedom. Any key frame point is represented graphically by an icon on the time-line ruler view such a way you can drag and move it as it was just a TAB marker on a text rule.
If you want to tune-up each single movement with more accuracy you can count on the powerful animation control system based on Bezier curves. Each movement (e.g. the rotation of the object along the vertical axis) is represented by a Bezier curve which you can edit acting on its control points. This way you can have a full control over the position, rotation, size, speed, acceleration... of any object.
- 2D Scrolling Text
- You can quickly create 2D static or scrolling text using any kind of font, color, size, shadows, or embedded images. Moreover, you can still animate the 2D text object in the 3D space as your wish, and get effects like flying texts, rotating texts and more. Create and edit the 2D text object from scratch with the built–in RTFD text editor or drag and drop an RTF or RTFD file onto the stage window. Then you can set the direction and the speed of the scrolling, as well as the animation of the text object.
- 3D Text
- With Kinemac you can create and animate 3D text using any kind of font, color, or size. You can set the transparency and the reflection level of the surface of the object and create for example glass, plastic, and metal effects. Also you can apply a texture image or a texture movie onto the surface of the object. Then, animate the 3D text at your wish. You can even resize it dynamically during the playback time.
- Animated Charts
- You can quickly create an animated Chart by dragging a .txt tab-text file. You can apply any color, image texture or movie texture to the objects and use Kinemac to animate your chart, showing, hiding, moving, and rearranging labels as you wish. Add text-counters labels to show the value of each bar, dynamically, with any kind of font, color, size, style and shadows.
- Inspector Panel
- The Inspector panel lets you define the attributes of the stage and the selected objects. It has several sub-panels you can select just clicking on the icons in the top line: Stage, Geometry, Textures, 3D Parameters, Scrolling Text, Lights and Scripts.
