Software development for OS X

 

This gallery lists some 3D animations made with Kinemac. You can watch and download the QuickTime movies exported from Kinemac and download the original Kinemac animation files (.kmc files) to play with the Kinemac application (even with the demo version). What you see on these movies is what you see on your computer, in real time, at full screen, with Kinemac. Please note that the following QT movies here have been strongly compressed for a better streaming. Also we recommend to take a look at our tutorials.

Contact us to see your animations listed here with your name and link.

RotoTV

With Kinemac you can play in real time an animation containing several 3D objects with QT movies textures, Quartz Composition textures, Image textures, scrolling text-images and 3D text. We have done this animation in 15 minutes. It runs in real time, in full screen, even on a MacBook Pro 17" 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo...

Jumping

We created an open box and applied some QC textures and some movie textures to the walls. We added a 3DS model of a jumping woman, a curved video-wall, a few scrolling text (vertical and on a 3D path) and used several movable cameras to display the scene from different points of view. Last, we dragged an MP3 files from iTunes onto the Stage window to create the soundtrack. Great!

10 Screens

With Kinemac you can play in real time an animation containing many QT movies. Here we used a moving camera and 9 + 1 TV displays within a metal structure playing 9 different QT movies. We copied the metal structure and the TV display from the animation below "Multiscreen". Done in about one hour. Unbelievable.

Monoscope

With Kinemac you can create 3D Bezier paths and link the path to any camera (eye or target). The result is that the camera moves smoothly along your custom 3D path. Furthermore, in this sample you will find a "text counter" showing the current time in seconds. You can link the counter to any parameter of any sprite, e.g. the height of a chart bar to display the bar value dynamically.

Strip-Film

Draw a path on Kinemac or import it from an SVG file and set its profile to "Strip". Set the width of the strip and drag on it a png file representing a film. Then set this texture as tile with many repetitions such a way you simulate a film. Then drag a movie file onto the strip and set this texture as tile too. Duplicate the path and you are done. If you download this animation sample, please replace the movie files with movies with the same ratio width/height.

Quartz Composition as animated texture

Drag a Quartz Composition file onto a surface of a selected object to apply that QC as texture to that surface. In the sample here aside we have set a QC as Background texture, then we added the same QC to a rotating rectangle and set 4 repetitions. Last we combined the QC texture with another texture onto the surface of the sphere.

White Earth

The latest version of a nice spot for a TV News program. You can do it in a few minutes. Create a sphere, select it and drag a "world" image file on it. Create a star, rotate it then duplicate it with "Duplicate Multiple". Drag a Quartz Composition onto the Stage holding down the Option key to set it as background and add a scrolling text with your favorite font. Simply great!

Strip-Text

Draw a path on Kinemac and set its profile to "Strip". Set the width of the strip and drag on it a png file representing a small text, e.g. made with Photoshop. Set the texture to "Tile" with many x and y repetitions. Done.

Towns

Set the texture as "crop" to create a multi-tile picture. Animate each single strip independently. Add 2D Text and a spinning logo.

DNA

Kinemac is in use by many Universities all over the world for didactic and research activities. Here we propose a nonsense animation just to give you an idea about the Kinemac's potentialities on these issues.

Overview

Take a look at how easy it is to use Kinemac at creating and managing 3D objects on the Stage, 2D Scrolling Text and 3D Text. Looking forward to add new overviews here.

Charts

You can quickly create an animated Chart by dragging a ".txt" Tab-Text file. Kinemac automatically creates and animates a chart like the one here aside. The 7 bars represent the rows of the table values. Kinemac will animate the bars, month by month, changing their hight. You can set the bars as cubes, cylinders, tubes and apply any color, image or movie texture to the objects.

Metro

We had fun at describing an hypothetical trip by subway in Paris, from La Défense to Château de Vincennes. We made a marker follow a path and stop at two stations... We calculated the the time to go on real time using a "counter" linked to the path. In order to have a high resolution map, we divided it in several rectangles.
