TOOL FOCUS: Autodeskâ??s real-time animation package returns with 2009 edition

While previous years have seen MotionBuilder overshadowed by Autodesk’s 3ds Max, Maya and now Mudbox, now the real-time animation solution is again in the limelight, so Develop has profiled the solution in depth.

“As a real-time package, you don’t have to do a lot of preview renders, which makes it very quick to use and eliminates bottlenecks,” says Nick Jovic, Autodesk’s MotionBuilder specialist.

“Its non-linear animation features and range of parametric controls means that you don’t have to be a technical animator to get great results either, which would be the case if you were animating with Maya or Max.”
