Intuitive Simple Controls

Select how you want objects to move from a library of behaviorally-based motions. Complex motions can be built up from simple ones. Motion and other parameters (including transparency) can be inherited from object to object (with or without delays to give the appearance of cascading action). Objects can animate around each other in a hierarchical way and object parameters can be linked to respond to the actions of another object. Primitives include all the common 2D and 3D shapes as well as clocks, timers and date displays with configurable display formats. Additional stock objects include balls for all sports, baseball bats, ice skates, etc. Animations can be linked to sound files (.WAV)
