Craft Animations is a developer of real-time 3D animations tools, called Craft Director Studio, which streamline production times by nearly 90 procent, saving the user both time and money.
Based on cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence and autonomous control systems, Craft Director Studio extends creative possibilities by eliminating the time-consuming tasks of keyframing, scripting and rigging. Users gain the experience of a new era of animation with an opportunity to create natural motion paths on-the-fly, optionally with the use of an input device, gaining instant gratification through highly realistic interactive real-time animation.
Visual for film and Broadcast - Craft Director Tools provide realistic and accurate vehicle incident and traffic animation, collision visualizations and scene fly-throughs in less time than it takes them to write teleprompter text, allowing more
time for creativity.
Previsualization - Craft Director Tools are interactive, providing better real-time control for precise movements exactly as envisioned by a producer or director.
Game Development – Craft Directors Tools allow game developers to enhance in-game cinematics through a modular, configurable system that replicates a specific rig within the host application. Artists may actually “drive” a vehicle within the creative environment, achieving a more realistic product in less time.
Architectural Visualization – Film walk throughs of architectural designs are easily achieved through Craft Director
Tools’ unique camera angles and views. Cameras quickly and easily navigate exterior to interior layouts of a scene in realtime, saving the time and cost of an outside animation contractor.
Accident Reconstruction and Forensics – Combined with user research and data, Craft Director Tools can provide nearinstant visualizations and simulations of any vehicle accident scene, simulating and recording key-frames in real-time.
* Extremely fast animation simulation software.
* Work directly in 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, or Maya.
* Save time through automatic keyframing.
* Increase quality through the use of real-time physics.
Craft Director Tools works in most versions of 3ds max, Cinema 4d, Maya, Softimage, Windows and OS X (for x86 and x64). Please go to the System Requirements to see if your system is able to run on the system you are using.
There is a bunch of add-ons that can be added to Craft Director Studio. In fact there are allredy a bunch of basic tools included for free. By combining these tools you can create new tools. As an example you can create a dumper tryck with the help of combining 4-Wheeler Free and 1Drotator.
