  • Muvizu is a free software that makes creating cool 3d animations much simpler than any other tool. Instead of extensive programming or graphic design, Muvizu lets you use an existing library of assets to create an animation. For example, you can use hundreds of pre-existing backgrounds in your animation instead of creating from scratch. Muvizu also has a vibrant online community that lets you share your animation, stills, scripts and audio pieces with other passionate animators. You can view the gallery, post comments, ask questions in the forum and share animations created by others using a permanent URL. Muvizu also has a collection of tutorials to help you jump start the software and learn new tips & tricks. -Makeuseof
