Anything wrapped in a pretty package sells quickly, and this does not only apply to palpable items. This is where Insofta 3D Text Commander comes to offer aid in creating 3D animated text which you can use to enhance presentations or various web projects.The main window of the application represents your workspace, and all necessary tools to work with are found in different tabs.
Firstly, text specific customization options are available, and you are able to change font and color, or use a picture from your computer as texture.A few background options are found here, in the sense that a color can be attributed or made transparent.
However, there is no possibility to set an image, which is a shame considering the possibility exists for editing text.Further navigating through the editing tools lets you set the camera position, lights and shadows, with the possibility to save configurations as presets you can use on other projects. You have to be creative from the start, as the application has no default presets from which you can choose.Navigating through the file menu leaves you wondering where animation options are, because sooner or later you come across the “Save Animation” option.
Only after hitting that button will a small window giving you the possibility to modify only a few aspects.Animation type only means rotation and can either be applied to the text itself, or the camera, with barely any noticeable difference. Aside from rotation, which can be clockwise or counterclockwise, only size and number of frames per second can be specified, leaving you with shallow animation customization options.All in all, Insofta 3D Text commander wants to achieve greatness with only a little effort. It's fairly easy to use and it is a pity so little customization options are available. If you need to get ahold of a rotating text quickly, this might be the solution.
