Download the FREE demo version
Over 1000 downloads as of November 1, 1999.
You can now download a FREE demo version of Falling Bodies
One and see for yourself what it can do for you.
Note that the demo version is Falling Bodes ONE. The current
product is Falling Bodies
TWO, and it's better.
The demo version comes with a character model and scenery. You can run
the scene provided, and try dropping the little guy down the spiral staircase.
Or you can put the character in your own scene. The only thing you can't
do is change the dimensions of the character model or build your own character.
For that, you need the product.
The demo version also has a "spinning top" model to play with. It spins
and wobbles just like a real top. Just keyframe the start of a spin and
let it go. Try this with some competitive products and see if they can
do something simple like that right. Then come back to Animats.
New characters and scenes for the demo version will be released from
time to time. Come back to www.animats.com
occasionally and see what's new.
