Craft Director Tools utilize high-end artificial intelligence and autonomous control systems to drastically condense traditional animation processes. Professional users including Digital Dimension, Toyota and Lockheed Martin have reported reduced production times by up to 90 percent.
“Craft Director Tools make it a breeze to add an extra dash of reality to CG animations,” said Marco Tillmann, product manager at MAXON. “The comprehensive toolset allows the artist to focus on the result rather than the technology behind it.”
