You can purchase and download additional animations from within your Embryodynamics Player if you have a standard edition downloaded from the public Embryodynamics web site (if you have a corporate edition, you may not be able to download additional animations). In addition, your Embryodynamics Player must be registered in order to download animations (you cannot download additional animations in 'Demo' mode).
1. Select an animation/collection
Under the Animation tab, click to open 'Other animations available for purchase,' and scroll through the list to find the desired animation/collection. Click on the 'Info' button for a detailed explanation.
A collection contains several animations, grouped by theme/specialisation and offered at a discounted price. It is always more cost-effective to buy a collection than to buy separate individual animations.
Click on the 'Buy' button to start the purchasing process:
A new window will open in your default Internet browser and then connect to the Embryodynamics servers and to the PayPal site. Depending on your computer and network access, you may see a blank screen or a message:
Wait for the screen to refresh, which usually takes only seconds. Do not click on any button in that window.
You can purchase Embryodynamics animations even if you do not have a PayPal account!
2. Process your payment
Once you are connected to PayPal, you will see the following:
- On the left side, the animation or collection you are purchasing
- On the right side, the available payment methods
- your PayPal account, or
- your credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Diners)
The payment will be processed by shakok sàrl, which is the operating company for Embryodynamics.

If you click on the 'Cancel' button, you will have to either install each animation individually by clicking on the 'Install' button next to each animation, or close the Embryodynamics Player and launch it again.
Your animations are now ready to use.
