Perspector V3.0.4: the 3D add-in ready for PowerPoint 2007

Visual Exemplars has today (11 January 2007) released an update of its Perspector™ 3D add-in for
PowerPoint that makes it compatible with the new version of PowerPoint, 2007.

What is Perspector?

Perspector helps presenters bring more creativity to their work and lift it above the ordinary.

Audiences are weary of being bombarded with bullet points and many presenters are now rethinking
their approach and rediscovering that an appropriate image is indeed worth a thousand words.
However, despite PowerPoint 2007 making it easier to access and apply 3D effects, is still
essentially a two-dimensional medium. Perspector is a unique add-in that allows users to create
complex 3D scenes from PowerPoint-like shapes, from scratch. This not only allows presenters to
create unusual and eye-catching effects but, more importantly, it allows them to illustrate
complex relationships between ideas in a simple way.

Perspector users draw shapes and work within a ‘3D space’ behind the screen. It is now possible
to work with three-dimensional cubes, spheres, comes, pyramids and many other shapes, and combine
them in ways that add meaning. Perspector also animates their rotations if required, adding yet
more creative possibilities to give greater impact to the presenter’s message.

Users of the Perspector Professional Edition can also quickly create 3D charts from PowerPoint
tables or Excel data. The charting interface gives users total control over all the chart
elements. Examples of Perspector’s spectacular new charts can be viewed in the Perspector
charts gallery: http://www.perspector.com/gallery_charts.cfm

Perspector incorporates other ease-of-use features such as the ‘Perspector Library’ which
users access from an assistant panel. Selecting one of the ready-made images causes it to
appear in the PowerPoint slide. After that, users can enter the 3D space and modify the images
infinitely. Short videos show how the imported image can quickly be changed and a video
demonstration of Perspector can be viewed from http://www.perspector.com/tour.html

The Standard and Professional editions of Perspector cost US$99 and US$299 respectively.
A free, fully-functioning trial version of Perspector is available to download
from http://www.perspector.com where sample presentations and diagrams produced using
Perspector can be seen.


1) Perspector, the unique 3D add-in for PowerPoint, was first launched in May 2004.

animate 3D shapes with the Standard Edition, the Professional Edition allows users to:
a) create charts, as described above
b) reposition the view at any point and orientation in the 3D scene
c) import images of slides from another part of the same presentation and lay them out in another slide
d) show relationships between points on laid-out slides using 3D connectors
