3DWebButton is a PC-based software package that offers an easy-to-use, step-by-step approach to creating sophisticated 3D buttons and headings for use on Internet sites.
Very professional output can be quickly and easily produced by the most inexperienced non-graphics artist using this program. A preview of your work is continually displayed above each of the 11 steps, which allow you to set the button shape, color, texture map and other of more than 100 options available.
The button can be colored or textured using a bitmap image, then text extrusion, outline, and altitude specified, and an optional drop shadow included. You can drag and drop the light source around the button to change the intensity and direction of the illumination. Seven button shapes are available, as are the same options for text previously stated. Finally, interactively size the vertical and horizontal dimensions and choose from bmp, jpg, and gif image formats. NOTE: 3DWebButton does not infringe the Unisys copyright. You can freely publish gif images produced by the program.
Now with roll-over effects! The ability to create java-script roll-over effects has been added in the version 1.7.
No 3D acceleration hardware required. 3DWebButton uses it's own software rendering engine. The program does not require DirectX and OpenGL libraries.
