Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Even though it's peppered with hand-holding effects and tools, Cool 3D isn't a tool to be taken lightly. As with all 3D graphics and animation tools, it demands a great deal of PC power to work its magic. The software could use some improvements, such as an interactive tutorial that explains the varied tools and several included examples that show what's possible. A preview function for effects would also help, since waiting for an object to fully render just to see what it looks like is a waste of time. Those caveats aside, Cool 3D delivers surprisingly powerful 3D modeling and text effects in a fairly simple package. If you have a fast machine and a bit of patience, in no time you'll be creating professional 3D graphics you can easily share as bitmaps or as Flash animations.
