ProAnimator Editor's Review

In Post production setups and 3D animation studios, using specialized CG and special effects app becomes a necessity. ProAnimator is a feature rich 3D design application targeted at motion graphics sector. It is ideal when you want to add some polish and jazzy look to a 3D animation sequence or model. Compared to similar products in this segment, this app adopts a different approach. It has a user friendly workflow and the environment can be customized. It can be used as a separate app or as plug-in for Adobe After Effects. As it is, you will get same results by using any of the modes.

ProAnimator can be used on PCs with Windows XP and subsequent versions. The company website contains video tutorials for installation for both Mac and Windows users.

The UI can seem a little cluttered to beginners with oodles of palettes and menu option to work with. The app comes with a decent collection of preset templates and animations. Using colors, textures and bevels by drag and drop is also supported. You can create snazzy looking 3D animations without spending plenty of time when you use the app.

The app has various light actions, light track animations and several presets that can be customized as per user needs. ProAnimator gives you extensive control for lighting. It can simulate real life lighting condition and physics extremely well. Light rig designs once created, can be saved and re-deployed. The enhanced and new flares created by the app change size automatically when the light is at distance. The fun thing is animating lights in the app does not involve usage of key framing. You can manipulate and customize single light or a group of lights easily.

The textures and arterials used in the app simulate light reflection like real life scenario. You get controls for tweaking aspects like specularity, highlight and bump etc. ProAnimator takes a realistic and smart approach to speed up the workflow. When you render complex animation scenes replete with enough lights and effects, the preview switches to wireframe mode so that the PC does not crawl. The app now copes with Ray-traced rendering features of AE. Making alterations to an existing model does not need extensive rework, in this app.

Video editors not using After Effects can benefit from using ProAnimator in standalone mode. It lets you export movies in both AVI and MOV formats. It supports Background movies as well. With an integrated plug-in you can easily import object and camera animation data to an AE project from a ProAnimator project with ease.

The website contains a very detailed help section where you can find answers to queries related to the software. The training section contains option for Live Chat. There are some handy video tutorials beginners can benefit from.

Positive Points:
•    Standalone and Plug-in mode.
•    Extensive lighting and texture controls.
•    Keyframe less editing.
•    Low learning curve.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing in particular.

ProAnimator is a feature rich yet user friendly CG app catering to 3D animation and post production sector. However, its user friendly workflow and extensive customization makes it suited for diverse audience. The lighting and material controls are extensive and you can create some stunning results by tweaking the settings. The nice thing is that you do not need to use key frames for editing animation or lighting in the app. There are some useful video tutorials in company website which can be really useful for the beginners. The app also comes with decent help files and online support. Overall, ProAnimator offers enough value for money and features to satisfy demanding and casual users alike.

Rating: 3/5
