Create your own animated cursors

RealWorld Cursor Editor enables you to create and edit static or animated Windows cursors. You can create new cursor by editing existing .cur files or create new cursors from scratch by importing an image file. The program provides a variety of tools to draw lines, curves, rectangles and other shapes as well as predefined filters for color correction, sharpening, drop shadows and other effects. Other features include support for animations with custom frame sequence, batch processing of filters, cursor hot spot editing and more.


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, Rectangle, Ellipse, Polygon, Flood fill, Text, Projected Shadow and more) or by filters. Smooth image masks can be used. The raster editor can run filters (Sharpen, Soften, Bevel, 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 Or by dragging a preview image. 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.
