About Swift3D V5:
If you haven't ever used Swift3D, or you've never heard of it before, here's the low-down. Swift3D is a 3D modeling and animation environment that makes professional animations that can be exported and integrated very easily into Flash. Not only does it make 3D animations a snap, but the interface is easy to use and even a beginner can start animating in minutes. The thing I like the most about Swift is the fact that you can create things in a 3D environment, and export them in vector format, yes vector. I like to design intricate 3D scenes and export them as an AI file to use in Illustrator, but you might be more interested in the Flash side of the program, I don't know. In fact, I wrote a tutorial a long time ago about using Swift3D as a powerful 3D Illustration tool, if you're interested in reading that.
- Import 3DS and DXF files.
- Export Vector OR Raster animations
- The only 3D animation software that directly integrates with Flash.
- Drag and Drop preset animations (rotate left, right, up, down, etc.)
- New to V5, Export to Papervision
- Save as AI, EPS, or SVG vector formats
- Export to Silverlight (If you're into that)
Like I said, I use Swift3D mostly for exporting single frames an vector format to use in Illustrator, but that's what's great about this software. It can do so many different things, I'm sure many of you could find plenty of good uses for it. Good luck to everyone! Let the contest begin 🙂
