PhotoMirage

Postby RJ Johnston » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:38 pm

Did you get an email from Corel about a new product of theirs, PhotoMirage? It lets you animate a photo. There's a 15-day trial. I've tried it only on a photo of clouds. The price of $69 seems high for a product I probably will use three or four times. Maybe you have a lot of photos you would like to animate. PhotoMirage

Cool tip, Robert!

I haven't heard of it, but it sounds well worth checking out.

I can't remember the name of it, but years ago I had similar software. It was inexpensive and I used it twice.
I think I may have even posted it on this forum, but I haven't searched for it.

I found that one very short arrow can do the job. I was using lots of arrows, but that isn't necessary.

I saw another product, Plotagraph, that looks almost like PhotoMirage. Corel probably took it over.

Here's a still image of a stuffed bear that I animated. Corel's instructions and tutorials don't show how to make breathing motions or back-and-forth movements. There are some abilities that are not documented, and probably for good reason.

Peru, could it have been DP Animation: http://www.animationsoftware7.com/

It is almost half the cost of PhotoMirage and has loads more effects and animated objects. I've seen some other software, but it is by subscription and more expensive than PhotoMirage and DP Animation.

No, that wasn't it. I think it may have come with a DAK piece of software.
