ShapeOnYou 1.5.6

ShapeOnYou is a little application that can display and animate different vectorial 3D shapes. It is useful to illustrate documents and is designed to easily drag'n drop the results in other applications (like Keynote, OmniGraffle 4) where you would like to use 3D shapes. It is even better if these application support LinkBack : supporting LinkBack means that you can update the image by modifying it in ShapeOnYou, and the modification will take place in the document of the other application.

ShapeOnYou features:

  • full vectorial graphics to make images smoothly resizable
  • the ability to build parametrized animations that can be exported to QuickTime movies
  • an elegant and intuitive interface, with an inspector in the iWork style
  • smart 3D rendering with detection of hidden edges, shadows, shading
  • a large set of basic and complex shapes (cube, cylinder, torus, Möbius ring, blob...)
  • the ability to customize existing shapes with some distortions (thinning, bending...)
  • the ability to create your own extruded shapes
  • numerous export formats : PDF, EPS, SVG, VRML, X3D, TIFF, PNG, JPEG
  • Linkback support

NB : ShapeOnYou is Universal Binary, but I use this logo illegaly since I did not ask a license to apple. That's too much trouble for such a freeware. I just use the logo for the user's convenience.
