I believe in the video editing, you’ll familiar with these products: iMovie, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas. But we know as a video editing products, in the Title and Intro animation video editing is not necessarily the best. And the current video editing products provide almost no 3D design tools for the title and intro. And such a design tool on Mac OS is even more difficult to find.
Mac App Store recently appeared in a by Aurora3D Software (http://www.aurora3dsoftware.com/) a company press release Aurora3DAnimation of 3D Title and Intro animation editing. I was also surprised to discover this tool and found it very easy to use.
It includes two forms of animation: template and key-frames:
Software includes dozens of animated templates, Every object can have many types of animations, such as rotate, swing, beat, wave, fade, typewriter, pulse.
Key-frame animation: Using just a single timeline, I will be able to control all aspects of your animation, including the length, playback speed and so on.
Title and Intro of the video, all video workers wants to make the same titles as Hollywood titles. However, this type of software to use “Adobe AE” is expensive and complex to learn. Especially in the production of 3D animation, we were ordinary video editor is difficult to learn, such as Maya or Lightwave. This is the software: Aurora3DAnimation value of existence.
In the 3D graphics design, Aurora3DAnimation production also has a great advantage:
1. 3D Manipulator: Drag the button at the right-bottom of an object, I can extrude the text or shape. You can control the object position, rotate and scale at X/Y/Z.
2. Free-hand Shape: Use the freehand shape tool, I can import .SVG, text to the canvas and edit the nodes of the shape.
3. Texture Effects: You can mix colors and textures, texture effects can be set reflection, mirror and transparency to create a glass, metal, plastic, wood, stone and other special effects.
4. Bevel Style: Software have dozens of Bevel style, you can selecting the style and height to adjust the bevel of 3D graphics.
5. Definable shape parameters: square, curved, circular, rounded corners, etc. have their own parameters adjusted to facilitate the design of simple regular shapes. Supports a variety of shapes and distort effects. such as: sector, curve, arch, heave, sunken, wave.
6. Light control: The angle of the ambient light and the color, light and dark settings, is to improve work efficiency.
7. Variety of templates and fast style: built-in a variety of animation and graphics templates for beginners to learn without any difficulty, do not need any 3D design basis. There is also a variety of animation styles, the need to design 3D animation of people, this is a great feature. That’s a key of create animation effects. Of course, a variety of particle effects for the animation more attractive.
8. Export and Share: Export designs as PNG, JPG, Tiff, BMP, GIF, TGA files, which can be imported and edited in other illustration applications. Export Animation to Movie, SWF(windows), GIF animation or Image Sequence as you like, Which can be imported and edited in other video edit applications.
After visiting the site, I found Aurora3D Software( http://www.aurora3dsoftware.com ) has developed a series of 3D graphics products, including Aurora 3D Presentation – a 3D Interactive Business Presentation Software; Aurora 3D Text & Logo Maker – Easy 3D Text, Logo and Icon Creator. Here recommended because in addition to simple applications, but also that relative to other 3D production software is very cheap price.
I hope you will reap harvest. Thank you.
