Xtranormal is a great site for making 3D animated movies. I have always mentioned and showcased a couple examples of Xtranormal creations in my Multimedia Tools webinars. Sadly, Xtranormal recently posted that they will be closing all accounts and removing all the existing videos by July 31, 2013.
This is what was posted on their blog:
To our loyal Xtranormal community:
What have we accomplished? Over the past 5+ years, we have created a simple way to instantly turn your words into a 3D animated movie. Our community and dedicated fans have created some of the most viral and entertaining videos on the Web with millions of users on our platform. We thank you for showcasing your amazing talent and for being such loyal fans.
Where do we go from here? We’re ending Act 1 of Xtranormal as we know it and exploring options for Act 2 in the future. In light of this, we’ll be discontinuing our current subscriptions, points plans and existing services as of July 31, 2013.
What does this mean for you? Over the next month, we encourage you to complete any “in progress” movies and download your completed movies before July 31, 2013.

The Xtranormal Team
Saying goodbye to Xtranormal is hard but now it’s time to seek out a couple alternatives to enhance your website, presentation, blog, or online classroom.
Hopefully they will come back with more awesome version of Xtranormal but in the mean time, give these programs a try.
