Thanks to the unified interface, Aladdin 4D allows in-animation modification, deformation, and enhancement of 3D models in a dynamic manner. Thanks to Aladdin 4D's versatile modeling abilities, you can create 3D animations typically reserved for higher-priced packages while staying under budget. Rather than forcing you to adapt your imagination to the environment, Aladdin 4D works by adapting its environment so that the only limit in Aladdin 4D is your imagination.
Spline modeling tools
Surface editing directly during modeling
Easy to use lasso style zoom
Extensive modeling tools including Extrude, Path Extrude, Lathe, Bevel, Mirror, Clone, Subdivide and many more
PostScript file importing can load a subset of most Postscript files
Draw freehand shapes, or trace over images directly
Work in an unlimited number of layers/spaces
Line of sight cutting tool allows complex object creation with ease
Create organic objects with spline curves
Aladdin 4D, offers high quality rendering output, powerful capabilities and one of the most flexible systems available today for any platform. You can get both photo-realistic along with unreal approaches to your scene in Aladdin 4D without sacrificing quality in either. With Aladdin 4D, the output is exactly what you need it to be when you need it.

Fully customizable lens flare and 3D flare objects
Render 32-bit images in standard resolutions or in custom resolutions
Generate photorealistic soft shadows
Control light attributes including Light Type, Color, Intensity, Falloff, Lens Flare, Shadow Options and more
Direct support of CyberGraphX, DCTV, Toaster, Retina, OpalVision and standard Amiga modes including HAM8, 24-bit IFF and more
Lighting can make or break any animation. The right lighting adds that touch of realism to a project, the wrong lighting can ruin it. With this in mind, Aladdin 4D offers a wide range of dynamic lighting tools and plugins to fill most needs.
Shading can be facet, Gouraud or Phong. Other attributes are timelined so objects can change reflectivity, color, transparency, hardness, etc. during the animation by spline controls
Unlimited lights of any type
Lights use attribute lists that can be animated to change color and strength
True photoreal soft shadows and user optimizable ray traced shadows
Conic lights (Spotlights) with full controls and targeting
Aladdin 4D comes with animating tools and plugins that compare to the best in the industry! Aladdin 4D integrates them as part of the whole package, giving you the ability to put that extra little touch to the project, granting your audience the experience they have come to expect. Aladdin 4D allows unprecedented flexibility for your animations, granting you everything you ever dreamed of as a 3D animator.
Camera can use one or more targets which control zoom, tilt and direction and even pan from one target to the next, all under spline control
Animation of objects via paths and spline paths
Paths also control rotation, scaling, mechanical waves, deforms and instancing, and can be linked for complex motion
Timeline and 3D morphing animation techniques are supported
Control splines can be used to control all aspects of transition
Animate nearly all attributes of your scenes through easy to use envelope controls
Animate lights, lens flares, textures, objects, even camera attributes
Hierarchical motion paths and targeting abilities
Advanced motion controls including Spline Controls, Velocity, Shifting and Scaling
Enhanced lens flare controls with complete customization and animation
Runs on any Amiga, or Amiga compatible system, including all models of Commodore Amiga, Quikpak Amiga, Escom Amiga, Draco, Pegasos, AmigaOne, and emulated under Amithlon, Amiga Forever and UAE.
