Corel MotionStudio 3D Editor's Review

When it comes to 3D animation, you normally think about expensive and resource hogging apps that require a fairly powerful computer to run. However, that may not be the case if you do not want to delve into depths of advanced 3D modeling and complex animations. With a more modest budget and less intricate requirements, you can opt for entry level 3D modeling and effect creation apps that are easy to use. Corel, known mostly for its award winning and popular graphics suit CorelDraw and other apps, made a foray into 3D animation with its MotionStudio 3D. It is essentially a revamp of an older app named Ulead Cool 3D which was discontinued long back. Corel has added some notable new features and revamped the core engine to an extent.

The app runs on Windows XP and later versions. Like most 3D apps it requires a computer with 2 GHz CPU and 1GB RAM and more powerful hardware is definitely better. It is prudent that your PC has a discrete GPU to run the app smoothly. The installation is more or less hassle free. It is a pity that the app is not optimized to take advantage of new hardware features like multiple CPU cores and hyper threading. The app does allow real time software previews though.

One nice thing about MotionStudio 3D is that it supports a plethora of file input and output formats. It can import 3D Studio (3DS) models along with Adobe Illustrator and Enhanced Metafiles. As far as export is concerned, AVI, MPEG-4, WMV are supported. It can also export files in Flash format, useful for web designers. Flash SWF Export can be useful for web designers but it does come with some limitations. The resolution is limited to 800x600-pixels. Exported swf files are opened properly in apps like Premiere Elements but other apps like Cyberlink PowerDirector and Sony Vegas Movie Studio fail to recognize them.

Like its predecessor, the focus of MotionStudio 3D is on creating text animations but it also lets you dabble with different types of geometric shapes. You can create 3D shapes and turn them into 3D or work with proper 3D shapes. Using its useful lathe mode, you can turn 2D drawings into round 3D objects. The app also creates nice particle effects like smoke or snow. The collision detection lends realistic bouncing effect on particles. While these gets basic 3D jobs done, with MotionStudio 3D you simply cannot expect to build complex 3D objects the way you do in cutting edge apps like 3DS Max.

If you are new to the app, resort to the EasyPalette which has a wide range of commonly used 3D models, effects, animations, textures and materials. You can also tweak those models and effects to an extent. You can also apply explosion effects to objects. There are realistic effects like depth of field, motion blur and lens flares. The effects can be applied on texts and objects by just drugging and dropping from its library.

The objects can be animated across a timeline which is placed on the bottom of the app interface. You get separate tracks for individual object attributes. Same is true for effects like camera and lights. It is a limitation that animations cannot be made on a curved path.

Positive Points:
•    Simple to use, low learning curve.
•    Plenty of inbuilt effects and materials.
•    Supports lots of output and input formats.

Negative Points:
•    Not meant for advanced 3D modeling and animation.
•    SWF export comes with limitations.
•    Does not leverage hyper- threading or multi core CPUs.

Conclusion:
Corel MotionStudio 3D makes 3D text and basic animation creation simplified and getting used to the app does not require time as it is. The range of inbuilt effects and materials is quite commendable. However, it is not at all meant for hardcore 3D modeling and animation segment. You can use the app for web design and eye catching effects for some of your video titles. However, there are some caveats that may prevent demanding users from buying and using it. The glitches like limited swf export options and lack of support for modern PC hardware features make it lose the sheen to an extent.

Rating: 3/5
