Stunning Animations from a Single Image
A single image is all that is required to animate in Creature. UseCreature’s powerful Skeletal Rigging & Animation tools toconstruct, pose, warp and finally bring your art pieces to life!This approach to animation streamlines your workflow, reduces assetchurn and allows you to produce high quality results whiledramatically reducing time and cost.
Advanced Volume Preserving Shapes/Skinning
Most skeletal animation software employ LBS(Linear Blend Skinning)as the mechanism to blend between the influence shapes of differentbones. In addition to LBS, Creature also employs Dual QuaternionSkinning to produce shapes with noticeably less volume loss whenundergoing more extreme bending. This feature gives you smoother,higher quality shapes compared to LBS.
Automated Procedural Bone Animation is made possible via BoneMotors. A Bone Motor is a component that performs an animated task.In its simplest form, you can perform traditional FK animation on asingle bone with a FK motor install. You can install an IK motor ona chain of bones to direct and pose your bones in an IK manner. Ofcourse, FK and IK methods are just the tip of the iceberg in termsof is possible. Want to easily make a floppy tail? Install a BendPhysics Motor that will automatically move fluidly and respond tothe actions of the rest of your skeleton. There are Bone Motorsthat will procedurally generate automated walk cycles. There arealso Bone Motors that simulate directible ropes, making themsuitable for any kind of motion requiring animatable bend shapeslike the necks of animals.
This incredibly powerful feature will save time and cost whileunlocking the true creative potential of the animation artist.
Mesh Deformation Motors
There are shapes and motion not suitably expressed by skeletalanimation alone. For those cases, Creature allows you to installMesh Deform Motors on the body parts of your character. Thesepowerful components allow for some very advanced animated effects.These include Free-Form Deformation(FFD), the Soft Body Simulationof Flesh/Muscle on the character, the Flapping wings of a bird, theblinking, twising and turning of a monster’s eye, the complexwarping of the internal regions of a body part for breathing typemotions and more.
Easily define spline curves describing motion arcs with Creature.Use the powerful Spline Path Motion Tool to plot out a curve inwhich animation can be transferred to. Create curves to animatecomplex motion paths, making such tasks fast, easy andefficient.
Wind Force Field Motors
Install Force Field Motors that apply sophisticated Wind typeforces on your character’s bones and meshes. This allows you toauthor and animate complex motion like Cloth effects veryeasily.
Manage and swap in large numbers of custom drawn sprite frameanimations using Creature’s powerful Sprite Frame Manager. Best ofall, Sprites swapped into Creature can deform and react to theunderlying bone and mesh motors. This means you can achieve somevery sophisticated effects with sprite animation, like flickeringflames that respond to physics or procedural mesh deformations.
Image and Video Rotoscoping
Animation artists require reference images and moving images to aidin the generation of high quality animation. Creature allows theimport of external images and movies, making it possible to animateusing image aids and rotoscoping.
3D to 2D Mocap Transfer
Mocap Transfer Studio allows you to import Biovision BVH files thatcontain 3D Motion Capture Data and then transfer that motion ontoyour 2D character. Using this feature, 3D motion capture databecomes a form of input for animating 2D characters in Creature,allowing you to produce compelling and high quality results in avery short amount of time.
2D Motion Capture and Transfer
Take your imported movie files and run it through Creature’spowerful 2D Motion Capture and Transfer process! Motion capturemarker points are automatically generated as part of the processand animation curves can be extracted from input video to be usedin your animated characters.
Powerful Animation Knot and Spline Editing
Creature provides a spreadsheet like interface to edit youranimation data. Use Animation Knot mode to cut, copy and pastemultiple animated knots. Slow down, speed up, shift left/right anddo other forms of animation retiming easily in Creature. Switchover into Animation Spline mode to obtain full control of youranimation curves! Drag and manipulate your curve tangents over timeeasily using the Animation Spline editor.
Deep AI Walk
Deep AI Walk is a cutting-edge feature for Creature Pro Windowswhich generates realistic human walk cycles based off 3 input posesusing the power of Deep AI. Use this feature to quickly generatefast, high quality customized walk cycles. The results of Deep AIWalk are written into Animation Keyframes to enable furthertweaking and direction.
Mathematical Function Scripting
Perform complex operations over an entire series of animated datausing Mathematical Function Scripting. This feature is catered toadvanced users wanting to filter/modify existing animated datausing mathemical functions. Turn simple curves into oscillatingsine waves. Flip, add or subtract offsets from existing curves andmore with this powerful feature.
Automated Mesh Generation, Skinning andWeighting
Creature automatically generates animation meshes from imageatlases containing character body parts. A whole myriad of optionsare available to sculpt, refine, subdivide and decimate variousbody meshes. In addition to that, bone influence weighting caneither be done manually through intuitive paint tools orautomatically via very sophisticated intelligent weightingalgorithms. Mesh and rig up your animated character easily andefficiently with the mesh generation and bone weighting tools.
Project Versioning and Backup
Animation is a process that involves handling large amounts ofdata. Everytime you save your animation project, a version isarchived into the project directory. This allows you to quicklyrevert to previous versions easily. Never lose results of yourprevious work with this powerful feature. The number of projectversions backed up by this feature is specified by the user.
Mesh Resolution Reduction
A powerful feature of Creature is the ability to let the artistauthor animations in high resolution meshes and then export theresults into lower resolutions. This is very useful to targetdifferent devices/hardware with various performance specifications.The resolution reduction algorithms in Creature preserve highquality while enhancing playback speeds during animationexport.
3D Face Warping
Take front facing 2D images and 3D warp them using Creature’s FaceWarp functionality! Face Warping allows you to animate slightrotations and tilts in front facing characters. This powerfulfeature can be used in conjunction with the motor system ofCreature to make front facing rotating facial animations withdynamic hair and expressions.
Rig Import and Transfer
This allows you to import an external rig with bone motoranimations into your current setup. It is useful when you want totransfer the bone/rig structure of another character onto a newtarget with a similar structure but of different appearance. A hugetime saver when you need to author multiple characters quickly inyour production pipeline
Pose Capture Library and Transfer
Take your favourite Character poses and save them into the PoseCapture Library. Apply this library of poses as separate keyframeswhen constructing a new animation clip. This feature allows you toquickly block out key poses using your own custom Pose Library,increasing animation efficiency and streamlining workflow.
Animate using Stylus Swipes
This allows you to pose a chain of FK bones in one movement usingeither the Stylus (Pen & Tablet) or Mouse. Select a chain of FKbones, Shift + Drag to Draw Curve and Pose Bones. A very powerfulfeature for manually animating complex chains of bones.
