Kinemac 1.6 released
Kinemac today released Kinemac 1.6, an update to the 3D real-time animation and presentation software for Mac OS X. Kinemac plays animations in real-time at full screen, and exports those animations to QuickTime movie files or to a series of single still images. Users simply drag images, text, movies, and songs onto the Kinemac stage. The software supports creating 2D and 3D objects via a menu option, and is priced at $250.
The update adds a Finder Browser to inspect images, movies, sounds, and more. Users can detach windows from the Inspector by holding down the command key, and Kinemac 1.6 includes QuickLook support under Mac OS X Leopard. The revision also adds support for the SpaceNavigator input peripheral by 3DConnection.com.
"With Kinemac you will animate the objects on the stage by setting key frames. And managing key frames has never been easier as with Kinemac," the company said. "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 ruler. See details later in this page."
