This is another excellent offering from PY Software which again has my "Ease of Use" stamp of approval.
It has everything you could possibly want for making animated banners, titles and buttons. You can create animations from your own pictures (JPG, GIF, BMP, AVI, ICO, PNG) and add 3D text and shapes. In addition to changing font size and color, you can use colored lighting, textures and more.
What I really liked about this was that you can have unlimited numbers of linear motion and unlimited transparency layers. Vector images can be resized again and again without loss of quality in fact all aspects of any object or layer can be altered from the very clear but comprehensive properties boxes. Add built in image effects(glow,shadow etc) and an image optimiser plus fills like linear, velvet, radial, conical, and square gradients and patterns and you have a very comprehensive but clear piece of software.
If you have anything to do with graphics this is a "Must have"
