XRayCAT Survival Toolkit (ST).

Italy's leading independent games developer, Raylight, today announced that their XrayCAT ST 1.0 is now available for purchase. Designed specifically as a plug-in for CAT in 3ds Max, XrayCAT ST provides the user unprecedented improvements in speed, ease of use and real-time options, all to help increase the pipeline work speed.

XrayCAT ST features are designed to improve the main aspects of CAT:

Rig Creation

CAT ST offers a set of shortcuts to the most useful 3dsmax functions regarding the creation and setup of a new rig.

Layer Manager

We have designed a new, more friendly user interface to easily manage all the CAT layers and their properties, to instantly switch between "Setup" and "Animation" mode, and much more!

Pose Manager

An enhanced Pose Manager,? which allows you to copy and paste poses, mirror the rig, swap arms, hands, legs and feet with only one mouse click. In addition, all rig poses are stored with a preview image to easily retrieve them when you need, and a Limb Animation section is included to switch between IK and FK mode when animating a limb.

Clip Manager

This simple tool allows you to manage (load, save and delete) all your CAT clips. Very useful, if you need to backup all your CAT layers and load them into another rig.
