CineTracer Mark I

D Features:
CineTracer is part of the WaveTracer-package and separates position- and movement-information out of other programs datafiles (e.g. raytracer-scenes). The CineTracer converts these information into CineData-format. These files can be loaded by the WaveTracer DS - it converts a sound out of it wich fits perfectly to the rendered ratracing-scene or -animation.

Supported formats:
- CineData®
- Imagine®
- AVB®
... other raytracer-formats will follow soon!


D AnimFX is a animplayer, wich replays WaveTracer-generated IFF-ANIM-animations with integrated sounddata (IFF-SoundANIM's). AnimFX supports ANIM5, ANIM7, ANIM8 with or without sounddata and CDXL.
AnimFX also includes an ARexx-port. So this program can be controlled perfectly from other software.
