Animation Plugins - 3D Effects #1
Create animated three-dimensional objects
For Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
3D animations are no longer the exclusive province of full-time digital graphic artists. Make your web pages leap from your monitor and frighten small housepets with three-dimensional graphics. Build still or rotating cubes, disks, toroids, text and more. Add your own pictures. This plugin set uses the OpenGL Windows component — see the Q&A section for more.
Important: We've heard rumors of a few systems with display adapters which incapacitate the OpenGL libraries, and disable this plugin. Prior to registering the 3D Effects #1 plugin set, we urge you to build an animation with at least one of the plugins and verify that you see a three-dimensional object in the final graphics. The Q&A section addresses the configuration issues for display adapters which exhibit this problem.
Open the 3D Effects #1 demonstration window for some examples of what this plugin can do to still graphics. Depending on your network connection, it might take a minute or two for all the examples to load and begin animating correctly.
Full alpha-channel support is available when this plugin is used to create true-color graphics.
