Anima 2.0

Anima 2.0 is a completely new version of Anima, rewritten from scratch and better than ever.

  • REWRITTEN FROM THE GROUND  UP
    Anima 2 is a completely new application, rewritten from scratch, and improved in every way.
  • ARTIST FRIENDLY
    With a completely new WYSIWYG editor, Anima 2 makes crowd simulation simple. It’s as easy as drawing a path, adding actors and hitting play.
  • RAPID SCENE POPULATION
    Whether a project requires one thousand characters or just one, Anima can spawn and simulate crowds of any size while adding subtle variations in textures and motions for incredibly realistic animations.
  • USE ANY ASSETS
    Users are not limited to the bundled content. Using Anima’s editing tools it’s easy to import and use 3rd party rigged characters and motion capture data.
  • MOTION AND POSE EDITOR
    Fine-tune characters and motion clips with the visual pose editor, providing the ability to adjust the rotation of every joint. Also edit and loop motion clips using easy-to-understand tools.
  • REALISTIC INTERACTION
    Anima creates natural looking crowd simulations using a sophisticated AI brain to anticipate collisions between actors and blend flawlessly between motion clips.
  • COMPLETE CONTROL
    Precise control is possible when it is needed. Each actor is fully editable, providing complete control to direct the perfect animation.
  • WALKWAY TOOLS
    New walkway tools provide sophisticated controls to direct walking, running and other locomotion animations. Advanced settings give users the power to control distribution, spacing, direction, clustering, and the ability to change the width of the path at any point.
  • RAMPS, STAIRS, ESCALATORS, AND MOVING WALKWAYS
    Use Anima to add actors that walk, run, navigate slopes, ride escalators, tackle moving walkways and climb stairs realistically. Whatever a scene’s topology, characters can explore every corner.
  • STANDING CHARACTERS
    Fill scenes with fixed standing and seated characters using an extensive range of animations, or import more from 3rd party sources. Characters can move from walkways to fixed areas to socialise.
  • PHOTOREAL
    Anima 2 uses the same high quality 3D people found in the Metropoly collections, so there’s no need to compromise on quality.  Actors are driven by real mocap data and a sophisticated AI engine with automatic procedural motion to achieve super-realistic animations.
  • NO NEED FOR POST PRODUCTION
    Save time in post production! Anima’s 3D characters look great from every angle and interact with the lighting and shaders in a scene to create accurate shadows,reflections, motion blur, depth of field, and colour balance.
  • 3D APP SUPPORT
    Anima  comes with native import plugins for Autodesk 3ds Max® and Maxon CINEMA 4D® .
  • COMPATIBLE WITH POPULAR RENDER ENGINES
    Anima scenes can be rendered with Octane, Corona, Thea, V-Ray, Scanline, ART, IRay, and C4D Physical Renderer.
