Making an animation might give you jitters of learning and using some expensive, heavy weight software. Well, that is not case with the following software. They are very small in size and resources.
Besides they are very basic and easy to make some cool text and images based animations. Here goes the cool list for you.
1. Sqirlz Lite: Animate, bend, distort and loop a selected part of any image by drawing an outline around it, and then a second outline to define the shape to be molded into. Any kind of image can be distorted and animated – particularly effective for things like text, logos, and photographs of people etc.
2. Sqirlz Morph: It allows you to mark features on several images, and the program mixes the images so that each feature on one image moves smoothly to the corresponding feature on the other images, a technique widely used in the film industry. Morph animations can be saved as Macromedia Flash (SWF) files, AVI video clips, and bitmap and JPEG files.
3. Sqirlz Water Reflections: It is an animated water reflection freeware software. Sqirlz Water Reflections is a way of adding rippling pools of water, and rain or snow effects, to images or existing AVI videos. Choose from a variety of ripple shapes, and control details such as wave size, perspective, water transparency and flow direction. The raindrops and snow flakes can be adjusted in many ways.
These above very lite software can render and provide very professional and nice results. Download, install them and start exploring. If you need way through way while using these software, check out tutorials on the download web-pages.
