A Valentine animation: Recently Nathan Salapat posted a Valentine animation on BlendSwap that showed a golden ring falling onto an open book, with the pages set up to show photos of a couple - and with the lighting set up to cast the shadow of a heart through the ring. A neat trick! We couldn’t resist [...]
Sometimes things just click: We made this Rubik’s cube animation to show how people come together in the apparently haphazard puzzle of life. Enjoy!
Toasty cats: Cats pop up in the darnedest places!
People see all sorts of faces on their toast. What’s going to pop up on yours? Use our new popping toast generator to make an animation of two slices of toast showing whatever you imagine.

Hey, we’re called “MakeSweet” for a reason. Heart lockets, heart sunsets, you can never have too many hearts, in our opinion.
This design [...]
Animated flags, with your choice of background (including none): Our animated flag generator is a hit, and we like the background in it (the sky as seen from a very pleasant seaside town in Italy, of which we have fond memories). People sometimes ask for a different background, or a blank background. We’ve just updated a version of the generator that lets you [...]
