3D Characters and Animations from Rocketbox Libraries now Available for Unity

Rocketbox now Offers Their Highly Realistic 3D Assets as Unity Packages, Making Usage with the Unity Development Platform Easy and Comfortable

November 16, 2011

HANOVER, GERMANY– Rocketbox Studios, well known for highest quality prefab 3d characters and animations, announced that their complete product portfolio is available directly in Unity’s native unitypackage file format from now on. This offers the large group of Unity developers the opportunity to use the assets directly inside of Unity, without the need to export them from a 3d software package. Shaders, textures and animations are already set up for convenient usage in Unity right out of the box– allowing the user to create astonishingly realistic scenes with lifelike animated characters within a very short development timeframe.

Both Rocketbox and Unity Technologies supply clients with the tools and resources for building sophisticated and interactive real-time applications for many different industries, like for example training simulation and game development, VR, architecture, medical, film and visualization. This is well reflected by the large library of available assets that were created at Rocketbox, ranging from Civilians, Soldiers, Special Forces and Law Enforcement Characters, to Medical and Work Uniforms, Middle Eastern style characters, Animals and many others. The newest Complete Characters HD series of characters even features a facial animation setup for visualization of realistic speech and expression of emotions, while still maintaining technical specifications for running smoothly in real-time applications.

“Rocketbox is very happy about working with Unity Technologies on the task to speed up the production pipelines for our mutual customer base. We had many requests from software developers using Unity about the possibility of receiving our products in the unitypackage format, ready to use” says Markus Wojcik, CEO of Rocketbox Studios.“Of course we are always looking for ways to make the life of our customers easier, so they can concentrate on the core aspects of their products” he continues,“This matches perfectly with Unity Technology’s vision that is realized with the extremely user friendly and powerful Unity development platform.”

"Rocketbox provides a robust full feature model set that works right out of the box with Unity,” said Davey Jackson, Director of Simulation and Visualization for Unity Technologies.“Their LOD files, models, animations and textures import directly into the Unity Framework with no need for modification. The level of quality and detail in the models and the ease of use make Rocketbox's characters a great choice for Unity-based projects.”

The new products are presented for the first time during I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida (November 28 - December 1, 2011) at the Rocketbox booth # 2823 and also in joint presentations at the Unity booth # 2363.
