Antics review in 3D World magazine

The latest issue of 3D World carries a review of Antics V3.0. The magazine went to press just before Antics V3.1 was unleashed, so you can add Google SketchUp and Google 3D Warehouse to the list of features mentioned in the article. They do mention that an update will appear in their ‘Stop Press’ section on their website once they have taken a look at V3.1

We’re very happy to see Antics score an 8/10, which was awarded for our ProPack version – the free BasePack is “even better value for money”.


It’s also worth picking up a copy for the in-depth feature article on Machinima. This gives a great overview of the Machinima movement as it stands today and where it’s heading in the future. Fascinating reading!

    Is there a copy of Antics on the free cover DVD?

    Not as far as I know… you can always download the Antics BasePack from the Store area on – it’s free and not restricted in any way.

    I get 3D World semi regularly as it’s a good source for models, which they put regularly on their cover mount, and I already have this issue. The article was interesting and covered quite a lot of ground.

    I note there is animusic as a possible related link. I love this stuff! I first came across it on the Kansas DVD Device Voice Drum where it’s used as part of the live show and there are also clips from other animusic videos on the DVD.

    I cannot download the base pack from your site.

    Any news on when we will be able to download it?

    There are a few extras that IMSI have produced of late that either help out specific TurboCAD users, such as furniture makers, or greatly improve other products with IMSI technology.

    One of these is the IDX Renditioner. It is a plug-in for Google SketchUp that provides high-quality photorealistic rendering – fast and easily. Renditioner works directly within SketchUp and lets you control the materials, advanced lighting components, environments, background images. Renditioner is “one button” easy with 3 render options of Preview, Standard and Presentation. It is simple enough for novices and yet powerful enough for professionals. Powerful features are optimized in a jargon free interface. Simplicity paired with speed and working directly in SketchUp, means you can achieve design visualization objectives more quickly. Renditioner offers 16 megapixel renderings for large-scale printing and powerful presentation of your designs.

    It is available for Windows XP or Vista on the PC, and OS/X 10.4 or 10.5 on the Mac and runs on either PowerPC or Intel-based Mac computers. As an extra it obviously requires you to already have SketchUp, but will be fine on the free version as well as the Pro version 6.4x or later. Like all photorealistic rendering, IDX Renditioner uses a system’s RAM and CPU power extensively, and is not recommended on systems with less than 1 GB RAM, with 2 GB recommended. Being fully multithreading, dual core, quad core, or dual quad core machines will each improve system performance dramatically.

    SketchUp is a nice piece of kit, but with the edition of Renditioner it jumps from good to professional, and then you import the SketchUp drawings into TurboCAD to add another dimension.

    Good morning,

    I have been interested in Antics since Oct. 08.

    Then, about when I am ready to purchase a copy, Antics closes up shop. The youTUBE videos really helped to promote your product.

    I am interested in a program like Antics or Antics’ brother, that can allow me to animate people, cars, and scenery, with sketch-up created buildings/ models.

    I do a lot of work in Sketch-Up, and your product was perfect for adding “life” to my Architectural models. Can you offer any help or suggestions.

    I have Antics program filee on my computer, but I haven’t authorized it past the trial run.
