3D Package Comes In Free Ed. Version

Educators can obtain a free version of VIDI's Presenter Professional, a completely usable 3D product with only model- and image-size limitations. In a review, MacFormat, a British computer magazine, noted that the CD-ROM allows one "to create complete 3D movies with not only 3D animation but also 3D sound effects." For a copy of PresenterProFree, readers need only pay a $5 shipping charge. Plus, VIDI offers its commercial version at an educational price of $1,995. The firm also plans to sponsor an animation contest in which winners would receive free copies of the commercial package. Visual Information Development (VIDI), Inc., Monrovia, CA, (818) 358-3936.
