Create customize cursor

Creating cursor from image

This is a standard function of every cursor maker. RealWorld Cursor Editor offers two ways to convert images to static or animated cursors. Prepared image can be converted using a wizard accessible from the main application screen. If an image needs to be modified before conversion, it can be opened in a built-in raster image editor. A "Remove empty borders" operation is extremely useful when preparing images for conversion.

Modifying cursor image and hot spot

Image in a static or animated cursor can be modified using drawing tools (Pencil, Line, Curve, Rounded Rectangle, Ellipse, Flood Fill, Text, and Projected Shadow) or by filters. Every image can be opened in a separate raster editor window. The raster editor can run filters (Sharpen, Soften, Motion Blur, Drop Shadow, Brightness, Contrast, Gamma, Transparency, Rotate, and custom filters) on the entire image or on selected area.

Cursor hot spot can be changed by clicking on a pixel in raster editor. In case of animated cursor, hot spot can be changed on mupltile frames at once by entering new coordinates.

Modifying animation

Frames in animated cursors can be moved or copied using mouse or clipboard in an intuitive manner. Appending one animation to another is a matter of few seconds. The animated cursor editor allows running filters on all selected frames at once.

Setting frame duration is as easy as clicking on a frame, typing a number, and pressing Enter. Alternatively, duration of multiple frames can be changed at once using the Frame Duration panel.

Creating cursors from 3D models

The latest version features an optional set of shareware tools for 3D modelling, rendering and conversion to static or animated cursors. Parameterized 3D model can be used to create an animated cursor where each frame is rendered using different parameter values.

Cursor maker features

Outstanding compatibility

RealWorld Cursor Editor implements and actively uses the custom frame sequence feature of the Microsoft .ani format. This feature enables to optimize animations with repeating frames and enables to efficiently create very long animations with variations. Imagine a butterfly flying between different flowers - by reusing the frames, you can create a very long non-repeating animation.

Aside from the extensive .ani feature support, the editor can also read and fix files with incorrect headers produced by some animated cursor makers.

Drag and drop frenzy

Result of a drag and drop operation depends on what is dragged and where it is droped it in the application window:

  • Drop supported files (images or cursors) on application caption - files are opened.
  • Drop image file(s) on a raster image editor window - image is pasted as new selection.
  • Drop cursor file on list of cursor images - dropped cursor is blended with current one.
  • Drop supported files on an animated cusor frame list - new frames are appended to the animated cursor (images are resized if neccessary).
  • Drag and drop frames in the animated cusor frame list - frames are moved or copied if CTRL key is down.

Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don't want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports.
