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 2.0.3:
  • The Rectangle and the Cube objects now support the Slices option. On the Inspector/Parameters panel you can assign a given amount of slices to these objects and get a smoother lighting when using light bulbs or spotlights. The higher the slices, the smoother the lighting.
  • Improved the input, now in %, of Specular, Shininess, Ambient, Diffuse and Emission on the Texture-Options panel and Inspector/Surface panel. You can now achieve results like these ones.
  • Kinemac now properly imports OBJs' texture-images and texture-movies defined on the mtl file (as map_Kd).
  • The "Import OBJ" panel (click on the Stage toolbar icon "Import/OBJ") features 3 check-boxes:Split Materials, Split Smooth Shading Groups and Smooth Normals. To know more please read the ReadMe file.
  • Fixed a bug when importing OBJ files with new material (newmtl) definitions
  • Defined a new icon and sprite color for the OBJ sprite.
  • Improved the visibility of the status "On/Off" of the sprites on the hierarchical Sprite List (eye icon).
  • On the hierarchical Sprite list you can now press Enter to edit the name of the selected item.
  • The Export To Movie window is now resizable.
  • Fixed a bug on the Diffuse and Ambient values on the Texture-Options panel.
  • Fixed a bug on the Texture Width/Height text fields on the Texture Options panel occurring when entering a value while the 2 size where "chained" each other.
  • The selected static light icons (if any) will be not drawn when exporting to movie/images.
  • Fixed a bug on the 3 "Decays" sliders on the "Inspector/Static Lights" panel.
  • Other minor fixes and improvements.
  • Please note, older versions (Kinemac v. 1, v. 2.0.0 and v. 2.0.1) can't read animation files made with Kinemac 2.0.3 or higher.

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.

If you have Tiger, you can click on the Download Now link. If you have Panther, go to the site and download the Panther version.
