Trimensional 1.02 for iPhone Adds Ability to Export 3D Animated GIF or Quicktime Movie

Trimensional 1.02 is a clever 99 cent app that uses the iPhone 4’s front-facing camera to take a picture of an object while the iPhone’s screen lights up in segments to light different areas of the object in front of it.

The 1.02 upgrade adds a couple of simple ways to share your 3D experiments:

– Create a Quicktime movie of any 3D model rotating (shared via email).
– Create an animated GIF of any 3D model rotating (shared via email).

You can see examples of both export types here. The image at the top left is an old school animated GIF file. Embedded below is a YouTube video of the Quicktime file Trimensional created.

There’s also a $4.99 in-app purchase option that export your 3D image in a number of supported 3D model file formats. These exported files can be used by 3D software such as Maya and Blender.
