For more information go to http://planet-plopp.com or see the latest review at http://www.pcpro.co.uk/macuser/revie...002/plopp.html ("Hugely inventive, both in terms of its interface and its features, Plopp is truly innovative software.").
PLOPP is a creative painting tool for cartoon-like 3D scenes without the effort that comes with professional 3D modelling programs. You can build 3D objects very easily! Just paint them in a 2D environment and PLOPP will transform them into 3D! The 3D objects can then be moved or rotated in order to arrange them in a true 3D scene. You can paint different backgrounds and adjust the lighting in the scene. The scenes can be printed, set as the desktop wallpaper, or sent as an ecard.
