Mug Animator Description
No one could resist a heartfelt present, especially if it’s one based on a personal reflection, an inside joke, or the likes. Custom mugs are one of those simple yet lovely gifts you could offer to your friends.
Still, before starting the printing operation, which will probably require some outside help, you may want to test out your idea and have a 3D simulator show you what the mug could look like. This is precisely what a software utility such as Mug Animator promises to do for you.
Helps you customize a 3D rotating mug
First of all, it need be mention that the application’s GUI is intuitive, bundling only a few controls, which makes it an ideal tool even for inexperienced users.
In the main window, you are shown an animated white mug whose rotation speed you can easily adjust using the dedicated slider bar.
The next step you need to take is select the image you would like to print on your mug, with the option to change its position as you see fit. Unfortunately, your editing options are not that generous, and you cannot even change the color of the mug.
Can save your simulation to MP4 or GIF
During our tests, we have noticed that the program comes with support for file formats such as JPG, BMP, and PNG. In case you change your mind as to the picture you want to illustrate your mug, clicking the “Reset” button comes to the rescue.
At this point, you should be ready to save your new proof as an MP4 video or a GIF. Note that if you opt for the latter, you should be patient since the app takes about 20 seconds to process your rotating mug, and in case you try to interfere with the task, the chances are that it will crash.
Apart from that, however, there are no performance issues that you should be aware of, with the only inconvenience being the rather limited feature set.
Could use some enhancements
All in all, Mug Animator is a lightweight app whose purpose is to implement your gift ideas. It can simulate a custom mug, letting you easily share the result with friends. While it has shown no considerable performance hiccups, the app could definitely use some further development, which could make it even more fun for all users alike.
