have the time or expertise to create quality 3D animation from scratch.”

targeted to their game and characters,” added Pimentel. “Architects can also
use the service to license animated characters in order to more easily populate

rigs. They can be customized in real-time and previewed for free in the 3ds Max

see how the motion will perform before making a purchase. After purchase, users
can take advantage of 3ds Max software’s support for animation layers to
non-destructively edit the animations as required.
