"3D Movie Maker takes kids' interaction with computer animation a step
forward. Relying on a PC version of the 3D animation used in movie hits such as
The Mask and Jurassic Park, 3D Movie Maker gives children the tools to make
animated scenes with an air of reality worthy of the finest cinematic special
"The program includes more than a dozen scenes; kids can set as many as 30
camera angles, cast any of 40 characters, and enhance the mood with visual
effects. Budding auteurs can have the characters read from prerecorded scripts,
or record their own dialogue. In addition, a sound library holds more than 350
audio effects and 200 musical selections."
"McZee, the zany wizard, shows them to the Idea Room, where the computer
helps them brainstorm their own ideas; and Melanie explains how to get the most
out of the Project Room, where they can create a flying 3D logo and edit a
ready-made film to fit their own taste and imagination."
"With so many elements at their finger tips, however, most Spielberg
wannabes will have to take it slow around the learning curve; the program
requires rehearsals, and will pile outtakes before kids' creations will be
ready for prime time - let alone the big screen."
