Kaydara Ships FiLMBOX 3.2

New version offers expanded character animation features By Dave Nagel
Kaydara has released FiLMBOX 3.2, the latest version of its real-time 3D character animation system. According to the company, the new release adds a host of new character animation features, as well as an enhanced interface and workflow. It's available for Mac OS X, Irix, Windows and Linux systems.

Kaydara bills version 3.2 as "a complete solution for both keyframe and motion-capture-based character animation for game, film, TV and Web productions." New features fall into the categories of facial animation, global timeline and enhanced tools. They include:

  • New facial mapping and animation tools for extracting motion-capture data, facial keyframing and phoneme recognition.
  • Visual keyframes for editing the timing of any animation.
  • Better control within the character animation tool using control sets for individual body parts.
  • Improved interface on the motion-blending tools.
  • An optimized Macromedia Flash renderer.

FiLMBOX 3.2 also natively supports Kaydara's FBX, an interchange format for 3D data supported by several high-end 3D applications.


FiLMBOX 3.2 is available now for a base price of $5,000. For more information, visit http://www.kaydara.com.
