The software is specially designed for children. The interface is easy to understand and colorful so children are intrigued and are able to easily understand it. In the past, Kid Pix was only available in 2D, but it is now available in 3D. There are 3D scenes available for children to set the scene of their stories. Children can also now narrate their own stories, adding a personal effect. With the narration, they can also record themselves using their computer's webcams. There is also a feature for children to add a costume frame onto themselves as they narrate. Children can also create flipbooks in Kid Pix which teaches them about stop motion filming. The path option allows children to control where their character moves and creates an animation for the character's movement in the story. To be able to use all of the features the computer the child is using will need a built-in or external video camera, a sound card, a microphone, and an internet connection. However, not all of these features are needed to enjoy the game. They are only needed if the child wants to use all of the features the software offers. 

Features:

  • Personal video narration
  • 3D effects and animations
  • Simple and colorful interface
  • Stop motion filming features

Kid PIX 3D is a great piece of software for children to use to explore their creativity and storytelling skills. It also is a simple introduction to the world of video editing. This could be the first look into something that could become a career for them in the future. Unlike a lot of other games and software for children, this is not something that numbs their brain. Children can learn and express themselves with this software in a way that other children's software is unable to. 

This version of Kid Pix is now available in 3D

Kid Pix 3D is a software that has a long and very rich history as it has existed for more than 30 years. Surprisingly, it is still being supported today with a new release a little over two months ago being released. Basically, to put it into words Kid Pix is a software that is designed to be used as a bitmap drawing program aimed at children. However, a little after its introduction both adults and children alike were using it and even some continuing to support it to this very day. That is extremely impressive when put into perspective as I mentioned before is a very long time to supporting software and giving regular updates to existing ones whilst simultaneously creating new ones that miraculously stay faithful to the original and that fact alone is both high and extremely incredible to think about. Kid Pix was originally created by Craig Hickman. It was first released for the Macintosh in 1989 (exactly 31 years ago) and was subsequently published in 1991 by broaderbrand. The latest of the Kid Pix series as of this moment is the Kid Pix 5: The S.T.E.A.M. edition released for a plethora and numerous systems including the IOS, macOS and finally Windows operating systems and was released on December of the year 2019. Kid Pix 3D specifically was created with the intent to educate children on the ways of digital art and technology in general. With its basic, simple yet extremely effective software it has helped educate and teach a number of children around the world in the past, present and one day the future. To reiterate Kid Pix is a piece of software that has existed for over three decades and was primarily targeted for children but also managed to get adults on board as well. As such it is an incredible software to use when starting digital art that I would recommend to everyone.
