Credo Ships DanceForms 1.0Character animation suite offers optimized dance figures
DanceForms is a character animation application designed specifically for creative dance moves for 3D objects. It offers all of the functionality found in LifeForms Dance but in its own dance-oriented interface. The software includes Ballet Moves II, Modern Dance Moves. MIDIsound (which allows users to add MIDI and audio to animations) and Metronome, which places a metronome beat in an animation. Other features include:
- Optimized default figures for dance;
- Mirror, which allows you to mirror the moves of a character and reflect the moves on the X, Y or Z axis;
- Snap, which attaches figures together;
- AnimationViewer, which allows users to view animation created in DanceForms without owning the program.
DanceForms 1.0 Solo is available now for Mac OS X and Windows for $189 for a single license or $89 as an upgrade from LifeForms. Multiple user licenses are also available for the Ensemble Edition, which also includes printed documentation. For more information, visit http://www.charactermotion.com.
