Quick Character creation

You can take any drawing of a character and prepare it for animation by using the Mask Editor for Advanced Character Creation.

With the mask editor, you can cutout the image into separate layers.

  1. Import Image
  2. Add bones
  3. Mask to separate into layers
  4. Animate it!

EASY POSE EDITING AND ANIMATION

Intuitive IK/FK Smart Motion System

Drag-and-move end effectors for IK editing, directly rotate joins for FK editing.

Intuitive pose-to-pose editing without switching IK and FK modes.

One transform timeline track can keep End Effector Constraints and it’s Effective Range.

Set keys only to Selected Body Parts, or to Full Body motion layers.

VAST CHARACTER AND MOTION LIBRARIES

With the vast content provided in the Motion Library, you can get your characters moving in no time, by just adding motion clips.

Motion clips are pre-animated actions that you can insert in your characters.

Think of it as you being the director of the scene, telling your characters what to do in the scene.

“Start running, do a roll, and then stop.”

As easy as that, without having to do the animation for all of those actions.

Done with Simple Click and Drag
