anima introduces a new and unique hyper-realistic 4d people animation system that includes facial gestures and clothing movements. anima is the people and crowd animation application developed specifically for architects and designers that will help you create amazing 3d animated people quickly and easily! With anima 3d people become human!
The new 4D Digital Humans are able to preserve every detail of the clothing and offer impressive facial animations. In addition, with the Ambient 3D characters you can populate the middle and front planes of a scene increasing the realism.
Photoreal Crowds at the click of a Button!
anima uses the same high-quality 3D people found in Metropoly collections, so there’s no need to compromise on quality. The actors are driven by real mocap data and a sophisticated AI engine with an automatic procedural motion to achieve super-realistic crowd animations.
Still Renders and Animation
Add life to your Archviz or any other visualization project! anima brings up a toolset to easily populate your still renderings and animation videos using the 3D Scanned Metropoly Ready-Posed and Metropoly Rigged 3D Human models.
Drag & Drop
Get access to hundreds of realistic 3D Human assets and start populating your still rendering projects directly from 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D; and Unreal Engine 4 with a simple and intuitive interface.
Ramps, Stairs, Escalators, Moving Walkaways!
With its easy-to-use motion editing tools, anima enables you to create actors that walk, run, navigate slopes, ride escalators, tackle moving walkways and climb stairs realistically. Whatever your scene’s topology, you can add crowd animated characters that explore every corner.
Thanks to anima's adaptive placement, area and walkway tools, crowd actors can walk, run and stand on nearly any surface. Just define an area and the actors are projected onto the background geometry. Press play and animations adapt automatically to the terrain for flawless integration.
Characters That Stand, Sit, Cheer and More!
Fill scenes with standing and seated characters using an extensive range of animations, or import more from 3rd party sources. Characters can move from walkways to fixed areas to socialize.
Your Own Characters and Motions
Users are not limited to the bundled content. Using anima's crowd editing tools it’s easy to import and use 3rd party rigged characters and motion capture data
