Traditional 3D programs are notoriously difficult to use and understand. Not so Xara 3D Maker. Unlike many 3D programs that take an age to learn and understand, Xara 3D Maker has been created to perform one job, and performs that job with style, speed and simplicity.
Xara 3D Maker is solely designed to create the highest quality 3D text and graphics, such as headings, logos, titles and buttons. It's the perfect way to add impact to your web pages, mailshots, movies and presentations (all images are fully anti-aliased for that smooth, professional quality). Xara 3D Maker can also create awesome 3D animations in seconds - GIFs, AVIs and simple Flash movie sequences - and you can even enhance your desktop by saving any animation as a screensaver!
Creating and Importing
You'll be creating 3D text headings in minutes and it's a snip to add borders or backgrounds. What's more you can import 2D shapes and extrude them into 3D.
Easy Text Headings
Text headings can use any TrueType font installed on your computer. 13 fonts are included in the trial download and there are 64 in the full download. Simply select the font from the drop down menu and type away, you’ll create your first heading in seconds!
Full Text Controls
There's full control over every aspect of the appearance of the text, including alignment, sub & superscript, line spacing, tracking and kerning values for individual characters or over whole selections.
There's also instant access to full character sets from within the text dialog.
Importing 2D Shapes
But you're not just limited to text headings. You can create non-text headings by importing 2D graphics as Windows metafiles (WMF and EMF) or Xara Xtreme/Xara Designer/Webster files (XAR and WEB) and extruding the outlines.
