Xara 3D Maker (formerly Xara 3D) 7.0.0.442

A straightforward application that helps users design 3D text and graphics, export the generated project to BMP, CUR, SWF, GIF, ICO, JPG, or PNG, as well as create screensavers and save the animations to AVI files
Xara 3D Maker is a software application designed to help you create 3D text and graphics for headings, logos, titles, presentations, or other projects.

It sports a clean and straightforward interface that gives users the possibility to create a new 3D design by embedding text messages which can be customized in terms of font style and alignment.

What’s more, you can change the color for the text, background image, and text sides, pick the text thickness, design buttons by specifying the size and angle, choose from different preset options for changing the shape of the objects (e.g. angle faced or cornered items), as well as apply shadow effects and select the transparency.

Xara 3D Maker allows users to move the objects and rotate them to different angles, play, pause, or stop the animation, and undo or redo their actions.

When it comes to configuring the dedicated parameters for creating animations, you can specify the FPS, apply loop options, and pick the style from a preset list (e.g. scroll, rotate, pulsate, ripple, fade).

Plus, you can import information from X3D, XAR, WEB, WMF, or EMF file format, and export the generated project to BMP, CUR, SWF, GIF, ICO, JPG, or PNG, as well as create screensavers and save the animations to AVI files.

During our testing we have noticed that the program provides very good image quality and without errors throughout the entire process. It remains light on the system resources, so it doesn’t hamper system performance.

All things considered, Xara 3D Maker gives you a hand whenever you need to design 3D text and graphics for different presentations quickly and with minimum effort.
