While many designers use high-end graphics applications to add effects to text, this program provides a more specialized and economical solution for stylizing TrueType fonts. The program has many unique features, such as the randomizer, which generates a series of random text effects and displays the results in a slide show window. Output options are plentiful, but in order to retain a fully editable vector image, you must save your text as a FontTwister file (FTF). Some of the preset and random effects are cheesy, but the program gives you extensive control over each effect so you can design text effects to meet specific needs. What's more, the developer's Web site has many additional styles, textures, and fonts that you can download for free. All in all, FontTwister is intelligently designed and easy to use. FontTwister is the fastest and easiest way to create dazzling text effects. FontTwister comes with an impressive selection of templates for graphic styles, color gradients, textures, shapes, letter edges, 3-D bevels, shadows, buttons and frames. Simple intuitive controls let you interactively real-time view and select your desired effect. You can reedit text and effects at any time. The effect generator creates unlimited variations of amazing text effects. Use high impact, anti-aliased text for logos, 2D and 3D headings in letters, presentations, flyers, invitations, cards, faxes, posters, web graphics, labels, banners, buttons, covers. FontTwister supports several popular image formats (.BMP, .JPEG, .PNG, .TIFF, .WMF). FontTwister is a very compact program (2.8 MB). It does not need OpenGL, DirectX, or other libraries. FontTwister is fast, because FontTwister was developed and optimized at a PC with 166MHz, 64 MB RAM. The setup program does not modify your system (does not copy any DLL file to system folder or change the registry).
