Kinemac, the 3D animation software for Mac OS X, is now available as a Universal Binary that runs natively on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs. A free update for registered users, KineMac 1.2 costs $249.
Kinemac lets you create 3D animations for use in movies, TV, CDs, DVDs and other media using QuickTime, or exported as a series of still images. Using a stage metaphor, you create simple 3D and 2D objects, then apply image and movie textures, set attributes such as color, transparency and reflection. You then set keyframes and control animation using Bezier curves, controlling position, rotation, size, speed and acceleration.
In addition to Universal Binary support, Kinemac 1.2 is host to a slew of other improvements, such as support for 3DS (3D Studio) files; enhancements to wireframe mode; multiple selections; alignment of positions, anchors and text; a new sprite library and much more.
