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.

This software is available for electronic delivery and on DVD-ROM.

IMPORTANT: PNG MNG Construction Set requires access to the Internet to validate itself after installation. Please see the discussion of registration key security for a detailed discussion of this functionality.



You can ensure yourself of a problem-free installation by reviewing our downloading and installation instructions. Downloadable installers can be used to install either an evaluation copy or a fully-functional registered copy of Alchemy Mindworks' applications.

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: 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 installers.

Internet Explorer and Edge: The Smart Screen feature in Internet Explorer 11 / Edge appears to corrupt Windows downloads from our web site. When this feature is disabled, the downloads appear to be fine. We suggest temporarily disabling this feature when you're downloading Alchemy Mindworks software.

Downloading: Note that you'll probably need to actually click on one of the following DOWNLOAD buttons to download an installer, rather than copying and pasting its link, or using it with a third-party download manager.

The last DOWNLOAD button — DOWNLOAD 2 or DOWNLOAD 3, depending on where you're located — points to our server in Great Britain. If you're outside North America — or if you're encountering issues downloading from our primary servers — please try the one in the UK.

If you encounter a problem downloading one of our installers, we're here to help — please contact us and let us know what happened.

Installing: Be sure you're logged into your system as a normal user, not as Administrator, when you install and subsequently run this software.
