Have you ever wished that there was a better way to convey your emotions when chatting online than with standard emoticons? Have you wished that you could make your Facebook or Twitter profile more compelling, representing yourself with more than just standard, two-dimensional photos? If you are like many people, you have had at least a fleeting desire to do these things, but you probably felt that you lacked the technical knowledge and computer aptitude to make it a reality. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a computer whiz or a graphic designer to make your own customized, three-dimensional avatar for use on social media sites and other networking platforms.
Despite the huge advances that have been made in computing technology, and the ways in which communication has been revolutionized with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, it is difficult to replicate the variety of subtle signals that take place during face-to-face interactions with other people. Emoticons and other written cues only go so far, and it is easy to have your tone misconstrued. Video chatting is a great alternative to purely text-based communication, but it too has limitations, and there are times when it may not be convenient. However, there are software programs that allow users to create three-dimensional, animated avatars for use on social networking sites, blogs, and anywhere else that users want to take their digital communication to the next level.
One such program is called Natural Front Avatar. Natural Front Avatar allows users to quickly and easily create an animated 3D avatar from a single photograph. To do so, users must first download the software, and then load a photo of themselves. With a few mouse clicks, the program utilizes the photograph to create a three-dimensional avatar, which can be used to display various emotions and expressions. Natural Front Avatar also features Facebook and Twitter integration, and users will eventually show off their avatars on their favourite social networking site. The avatars are emotive, and as realistic as 3D characters in your favourite animation movies, adding an entirely new dimension (pun intended) to online communication.
Those who are interested can download a trial version of Natural Front Avatar for free at the company’s website, NaturalFront.com. If users decide to buy after trying the product, they can obtain it for a reasonable price, and significant discounts are offered for students purchasing the software. Not only that, but users who decide to purchase a license after utilizing the free trial can complete a satisfaction survey to obtain an additional 10% off the license fee for the paid version of the software.
