Kinemac2.0.4

15 February 2021

Create professional 2D and 3D animations.

Overview

Kinemac 2 is the latest version of the famous 3D Real Time Animation Software for macOS. It allows you to create your own professional 3D and 2D animations with the utmost simplicity. Take a look at the stunning 4k movies created with Kinemac. Kinemac 2 is a 64 bits application. It uses great technologies as AVFoundation to manage your video and audio files and to smoothly export your animations to a movie file. The app comes with a new look and feel, new icons and GUI, and it's tuned up to run on macOS Catalina+, Retina displays, in light and dark mode. Kinemac is easy and intuitive. Just drag your images, texts, movies, songs, vectorial logo and 3D models onto the Kinemac stage and get them within your animation. You can further quickly use the built-in objects as cubes, cylinders, spheres, tubes, pies, rectangles, disks, 2D and 3D Text and animate your actors with a pair of keyframes. Watch, download and play in real time some animation sample with Kinemac.

What's new in Kinemac

Version 2.0.4:
  • New Option Dancing Floor. You can now create 70s' style dancing floor rectangles and choose foreground and background colours sets and several lighting-programs.
  • New option "Join Obj Surfaces". If some surfaces of your OBJ model have the same color, material and textures, you can join them in one unique surface and speed up the rendering. Select your OBJ model then, on the Inspector/Surfaces list, select two or more surfaces to join and choose the "Sprites/Join Surfaces" menu item (Command-P). The color, material and textures will be taken from the latest surface selected (most bottom selected item on the the list):
  • Improved the geometry structure on several built in 3D objects as Rectangle, Cube, Cone, Cylinder… This will be strategic for an upcoming new feature.
  • On the Inspector/Parameters panel you can now set the "Slices" to the "3D Text" objects. A higher value corresponds to a smoother surface. You can temporarily set the Wireframe drawing mode ("Views:Wireframe Drawing Mode" item menu) to better see the changes.
  • You can now drag an animation folder from the Finder onto the Stage to open the animation kmc file nested therein.
  • Fixed a bug on the "Export To Movie" panel. Now Kinemac remembers the latest folder chosen.
  • Fixed a bug on the "Lock" checkbox on the Inspector/Geometry panel.
  • Added a popup menu "Sprite Ruler Units" on the Inspector/Stage panel (close to the "Animation Duration" field). More than on the Preferences panel, with this pop up you can change the Sprite Ruler Unit between Ticks and Seconds.
  • Addressed some minor issues on the Texture Options panel.
  • Addressed several minor issues when running on Big Sur.
  • Other minor fixes and improvements.

A few days ago the developer emailed me an offer to upgrade to Kinemac v2, which now runs under MacOS Catalina and Big Sur, for $29. I run Mojave so didn't run into the compatibility issue with Catalina. If anyone upgrades to v2, please leave a review so I know if it's worth upgrading. Thanks!

No longer works with Mac with Catalina installed, so until it is upgraded it is therefore useless for us using the latest Mac operating system!

I got this at a special on here in June 2014.. I thought they were having a sale because they were going to update it.. but no, they just refiled their pockets ;0) Considering all MacOS Core changes since 2012.. would be nice seeing them adapt.. or breathe even?! The World did not come an end remember.

Kinemac is the best animation software I have ever seen for the MAC. The people that deal with customers service are incredible. They are so thoughtful and kind in responding to questions and updates. They have met and exceeded all of my needs.

Kinemac is amazing and easy to use. The tutorials on the site can get you up and running quickly so you can create impressive animations in no time. Also, the support is AWESOME! I had a licensing issue come up so I sent the support team an email. Not only did they respond almost immediately, but they solved my problem right away. Highly recommended!

The software is great for what it does and the ability to create your own independent app is FAB. It has NOT crashed on me yet. I do not like that it "phones home" for verification, though I understand why. However, upgrading machines or transferring from one to another becomes an issue when you have to wait for the license to be reset.

What a great product at a great price! I tripped over this software while looking for an easy to use graphic animation program. VERY easy to use, and the best part is the customer service. As you get into using the program, you will have questions for sure, and these guys actually reply to emails in a timely fashion. I'm a real customer that is very satisfied with this product.

Kinemac is an oustanding 3D solution for a non-technical editor like me. They're templates make it easy to produce broadcast quality animations. In addition their customer support is outstanding. They're prompt, courteous and helpful. Bob Chesney

The interface is pretty ituitive and Very simple and easy to use. A few minor issues for registration but fast response from the developer makes it a very minor issue.

This could be a great package it makes some fantastic animations but has a draconian registration system and crashes a lot so I can't recommend it for real production work.

Kinemac 1.6 was released on February 5, 2008. I am a home user and use 3d applications for Titles most of the time. Kinemac is an outstanding program. Its easy to learn. Its support pages are only around 80 versus thousands for more traditional 3d applications. The use of paths for animation, multiple cameras. The able to apply movie textures to various objects makes this application a pleasure to use and it works nicely with Motion 3, FCP and just about any Quicktime application. It does not create objects but has a nice supply of primitives and can import Object and SVG files as well. I highly recommend this program and would suggest you look at some of its creations on the kinemac web site.

SithLord, you can't blame the developer for not developing for such an old operating system. Most people now are either on Tiger or Leopard. If you're going to give him a 1 star review, don't just do it because he didn't develop it for your outdated system. Write a real review on the actual app, not how Panther can't run it, please.
