Sega Animanium

Sega | Animanium is a revolutionary standalone application designed to help you in creating amazing character animation with an intuitive interface and powerful IK system. This IK system can be used as a companion product to the major animation/3D tools in the market place. Currently, it can manipulate bone data from 3DS Max, Maya, XSI, Lightwave and most recently, Character Studio. The powerful IK system allows virtual motion capture, which eliminates expensive physical motion capture process. This means significant reduction of out-of-pocket and labor cost. In addition, this self-contained IK system cuts most of the rigging and bone creation required in the traditional process. Depends on the project, Animanium will more than pay for itself in cost and production time. Think of Animanium as virtual motion capture system for animators…

Designed by some of Sega‘s premiere developers, Animanium represents a quantum leap in character animation, for two-legged, four-legged or multipedal characters. It was even recognized and awarded the prestigious Technological Innovation Award at 3D Festival in Coppenhagen in 2003.

Using an advanced IK system and providing for features that represent marionette rod controls, animators now have the ability to create the animations they’ve always wanted through a traditional and easy-to-understand 2D pose-to-pose workflow.

Simplicity without inhibiting your ideas

Frequently used buttons have been added such as sectional playback and ghost number modification. Keeping the display related buttons on top and the posing operation related buttons at the bottom minimizes mouse movement during posing. And since the posing operation buttons are all on/off,
it’s easy for you to concentrate on creating movement without being distracted by button operation.

This improves the Snap’s holding power.
