PNG MNG Construction Set represents the state of the art in animation software. It will assemble your original animations effortlessly through its Animation Wizard, squeeze them down to as close to nothing as possible with its Supercompressor; create eyecatching banners and animated transitions; manage your MNG files; add transparency to existing PNG graphics and a lot more.

The extensive documentation and tutorials included with PNG MNG Construction Set will get you up to speed in less time than it takes most elected officials to redefine the truth.

PNG MNG Construction Set Professional offers access to the extensive library of Alchemy Mindworks animation plugins as well. If you need unspeakably cool graphic elements for your web pages and your artistic skills end at advanced paperclip sculpture, these optional accessories will turn you into a professional designer with little more than a few mouse clicks.

Downloading and installation of this software: You can ensure yourself of a problem-free installation by reviewing our downloading and installation instructions. The downloadable installer can be used to install either an evaluation copy or a fully-functional registered copy of this application.

Important: You might see a warning during download or installation of these installers concerning possible "malicious code." These messages are generated by Windows if you attempt to download and install most non-Microsoft software. They can be safely ignored.

Norton Antivirus users: Norton security products may generate spurious warnings about downloaded software installers, including some of ours. They appear as WS.Reputation alerts. Norton may delete incoming downloads when it generates this warning. WS.Reputation is not a virus — it's apparently an internal reputation ranking maintained by Symantec, which gets confused from time to time. Please see our support blog for more about it. In the event that you encounter this warning, we recommend that you disable Norton Antivirus to complete your download. It does not indicate the presence of a virus or malware in our installer.

If you're upgrading an earlier installation of this software, please see our discussion of version 4 upgrades before you begin. Doing so will save you no end of head-banging and typing.

PNG MNG Construction Set 2: PNG MNG Construction Set 2 has been superceded by the current version 4 release. Its installers have been removed from distribution. We recommend that you upgrade to PNG MNG Construction Set 4. Due to its increasing inability to get along with all the current releases of Windows, we are no longer able to provide replacement legacy installers for PNG MNG Construction Set 2 to registered users. Not to put too fine a point on it, Windows has devised more ways to crash it than proponents of global warming have math errors.
