Description from the packaging.

Create dazzling studio-quality computer animations!

Professional animation is here!

Zoetrope is a computer animation system for your Amiga with the functionality and features found only on high-end computer animation graphics systems. Zoetrope can be used as a stand-alone paint program to create 2D animated fantasies (Zoetrope contains all the standard paint tools: brush, box, rubber, line fill, etc.) or to animate 3D images. Zoetrope accepts a broad range of 3D graphics file formats, both static and animated, including: Videoscape 3D, Aegis Titler, Live!, Aegis Animator, I.F.F., Atari ST Cyber Paint and Atari ST Cyber Studio.

With Zoetrope, creating animated sequences is a professionally elegant process. Zoetrope has the ability to cut, move and paste images over any range of frames. On playback, pasted images float smoothly and effortlessly in sequence from the first frame to the last. Zoetrope's unique compositing system has the capacity to overlay or underlay almost any type of graphics file. Cel registration is simplified with Zoetrope's "auto-blueing" feature that prints a ghost image of previous changes to subsequent frames; giving you the fastest possible way to create professional looking animations.

Here are just a few of Zoetrope's features:

  • Cel animation
  • APM Antic Pixel Mover animation
  • 3D Delta file animation
  • Pixel and color effects menus
  • Paint tools
