To allow someone to do something

Hello, I am writing lớn ask native speakers if it is comtháng khổng lồ say "allow doing something". Some reference books say that this construction is possible but its meaning differs from "allow sometoàn thân khổng lồ vày something". So, are these two sentences both grammatically correct và vì chưng they mean the same?- The software allows creating 3d screensavers.- The software allows us khổng lồ create 3d screensavers. Thank you for any ideas.
