DP Animation Maker can help you design your own animated wallpapers, screensavers, and banners. The program has a straightforward interface so it is unlikely you have any difficulty to use it even if it is your first time. Yet, if you want to exploit all its features, it is a good idea to consult its online help documentation. Moreover, it is great that it comes with various examples, which let you evaluate the potential of this software.
Creating an animation from scratch will not take you long. All you need to do is importing a background image. You should also know that you can use this program to create a sequence of slides. Then, you can start applying effects and adding animated objects. Fortunately, there is a vast library of impressive effects and objects available. I am glad that there are various types of supported objects, including static and animated images, sounds and brushes. It also allows importing external animated files.
This product has some effects that will surely catch your attention. These include Glass Bell, Matrix Code, Rings on Water, Fire, Water Mirror and Underwater, which can be customized to meet your exact needs. It is excellent that every new version comes with new effects.
Once you have finished editing your project, you can proceed to export in various formats. In this regard, the tool supports such video formats as AVI, WMV, and MOV. In addition, it is possible to save the results as an animated GIF or a sequence of PNG images. Finally, it is excellent that the software can create standalone (EXE) projectors as well.
All in all, DP Animation Maker may be the way to create nice animations, even if you do not have many designs and computer skills. Nevertheless, it may not be the right tool if you want to have more creative freedom, as it lacks advanced animation features. The product is shareware, and you can evaluate its trial version at no cost; however, it shows a nag screen every time you start it and adds watermark on the final animation.
