Animations is too difficult. 3D animations is horribly difficults. But Plotagon offer an interesting shortcut, an easy way to builds your own 3D animated movies without requiring technical knowledge or artistic ability at all.
There is a catch, of course two, really but this free Windows and OS X and iOS app still has plenty of entertainments potential.
Plotagon keep thing simple by only allowing you to builds movies from its own 3D libraries and canned actions.
You will choose a scene a classrooms, an office water cooler then add two character from a list and enter some dialogs and customize this with an action or emotions perhaps add an animated action on its own (handshakes, kisses, slap), then share the result on “Facebook or YouTube”.
This is limiting in all kind of way. In particular and will you start with only two scenes and four character and you can not make them do very much. Set up a scene and you are always asked to choose two digital actor, for instances. You can not have three, or four; you can not have one of the start character leave part way through or another one arrive.
You May buy more character and scenes at the built-in Store and though (typically $0.99 each), and there are some free item to choose from. As we write and free scenes include “Airport Checking-in”, “Security check”, “Airplane” and “Airport control tower” and which you might be able to link in a story and they are all your for a click of the Downloads button.
It is also possible to customize a character is hairs, clothe, maybe add glasses or a beard and great if you would like your actor to look like friend or family.
The ends result isn not going to win any Oscars, but just making animated character speak your dialog present some fun possibilities.
Plotagon could have some educationally values, too, as an entertaining way to help your kid construct their own story.
