Alias MotionBuilder 7 Ships3D character animation suite for game, film and broadcast production (August 29, 2005)
TORONTO, Canada - Alias® MotionBuilder® 7 software is now shipping worldwide to artists needing to quickly generate professional-level character performance animation. New and upgrading customers can purchase the latest version of MotionBuilder from an authorized reseller or online at www.alias.com.
"The response from our beta customers to MotionBuilder 7's newly extended character animation capabilities, improved interoperability with popular 3D packages and productivity enhancements has been very positive," says Curtis Garton, product manager for Alias MotionBuilder. "Providing animators with the tools they need to tackle the most demanding, high-volume animation is our number one priority with MotionBuilder."
This latest release gives increased control over characters through new rigging enhancements, such as character extensions and control rig visual feedback. Numerous new workflow features - including the save and load character animation functionality that lets animators rapidly transfer, repurpose and reuse animation clips with any character - enable increased
productivity. Alias MotionBuilder 7 has an improved ability to interact with other 3D applications. New constraints, for example, allow users to easily transfer animated character setups between MotionBuilder and Maya®.
