Animated Program

Eastridge Technology has introduced Impel, an animation program for IBM PCs, PS/2s, and compatibles. You can use the program to make animated business presentations, product demonstrations, and moving displays of graphics and text.

The animation system uses mouse-driven menus and intuitive pick-and-place positioning. Features include a drawing package, proportionally spaced text fonts, film editing and splicing, depth perception, simultaneous movement of different pictures, and a film compiler to speed up finished films. The manual includes a tutorial.

Impel supports CGA, EGA, VGA, and MCGA graphics. The compete package, including a reference manual and demonstration disks, retails for $295. The demonstration disks are also available separately on a 5¼-inch disk for $10 and a 3½-inch disk for $15. The disk prices are applicable toward the purchase of the full package.
