Xara 3D Maker 7 (Academic) (Electronic Software Delivery)

Traditional 3D programs are notoriously difficult to use and understand. Not so Xara 3D Maker. Unlike many 3D programs that take an age to learn and understand, Xara 3D Maker has been created to perform one job, and performs that job with style, speed and simplicity.

Xara 3D Maker is solely designed to create the highest quality 3D text and graphics, such as headings, logos, titles and buttons. It's the perfect way to add impact to your web pages, mailshots, movies and presentations (all images are fully anti-aliased for that smooth, professional quality). Xara 3D Maker can also create awesome 3D animations in seconds - GIFs, AVIs and simple Flash movie sequences - and you can even enhance your desktop by saving any animation as a screensaver!

New in Version 7

We know Xara3D 6 is already addictive and now it's going to be even more so, with a couple of great new animation types and even more bevel styles to experiment with. You have been warned!

Plus there are new controls over X & Y position and viewpoint, a wireframe mode and some essential updating for Win 7. Here's a summary of the new features in Xara 3D Maker 7:

'Scroll' animation type added A new 'scroll' animation type. Now you can scroll text vertically, horizontally or into and out of the screen, with full control over the speed. Both the scroll and new scroll in & out animations are perfect for movie and video opening titles and closing credits (export as AVI, compatible with any movie software).

'Scroll in/out' animation type added A second new 'scroll in/out' animation type, which includes separate control over how the text enters and leaves the screen - so for example it could scroll in slowly from the right, hesitate and then exit quickly upwards!

Integration with MAGIX movie & slideshow products Xara 3D Maker 7 can export animations with a transparent background in a proprietary format called CFX which can be imported into MAGIX slideshow and movie editing software, Photostory on CD & DVD 9 and Movie Edit Pro 17. Which makes 3D Maker the perfect choice for creating overlaid 3D captions for movies or slideshows produced in MAGIX software.

Bevel types added 7 new bevel types, increasing even further the range of different styles you can create.

'View options' panel A 'View options' panel which gives additional advanced control over the X/Y position of an image against its background, allows you to precisely change the angle of rotation and viewpoint, and offers a new wireframe mode which can simplify the display and speed up animation viewing time.

Compatible with Windows 7 Official Win 7 compatibility. Also optionally for Windows 7 rarely used fonts are hidden to unclutter the font list.

Other software compatibility You can now cut and paste your 3D images to Microsoft Word and other programs.

Save & restore Automatic save and restore of the current design on program exit and start-up, or on Windows shutdown.
