Autodesk Inc., a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, announced the release of MotionBuilder 2018. This software helps extend the world of high-quality animated production to new audiences, with support for affordable, consumer-level motion capture devices and a library of pre-built moves to cover a number of commonly required animations.
In addition, new advanced camera options—animatable Depth of Field and Follow Focus—help artists more readily mimic real-world cinematography, to better preserve directors’ creative intent. Meanwhile, the ability to adjust a character’s position within a marker cloud offers greater flexibility in how captured data is mapped to a CG target that may have different proportions from the original actor.
Autodesk helps people imagine, design and create a better world. Everyone—from design professionals, engineers and architects to digital artists, students and hobbyists—uses Autodesk software to unlock their creativity and solve important challenges.
