Providing an opportunity for artists and game designers to enhance the sample Craft Director Studio (CDS) tools integrated within the 2011 versions of Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Max Design and Autodesk Softimage software; Craft Animations announces the discounted availability of the complete CDS tool suite. From now through Sept. 30, 2010, all artists utilizing 3ds Max 2011 or Softimage 2011 are encouraged to visit www.craftanimations.com to take advantage of a nearly 40 percent CDS discount.
Used by widely recognized gaming and visual effects companies including Pixar, Digital Dimension, Electronic Arts and NAMCO BANDAI, the complete CDS suite includes nine specialized virtual cameras and seven vehicle tools that increase interactive control and simulation, and provides the ability to enhance cinematics through a modular, configurable system that replicates a specific rig’s animation within a given project. 3D artists may literally “drive” a vehicle, or “direct” a camera within the creative environment, garnering a more realistic effect in less time.
The promotional CDS tools included on the Installation DVDs shipped with 3ds Max 2011, 3ds Max Design 2011 and Softimage 2011 software includes the Craft SoftMotionCam, Craft ObserverCam, Craft MultiStateCam, Craft HumanizerCam, as well as four Craft Pre-rigged Models.
