Autodesk Integrates Craft Director Studio into 2011 Versions of 3ds Max and Softimage

Craft Animations and Autodesk announced the integration of certain Craft Director Studio plug-ins within the 2011 versions of Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk 3ds Max Design and Autodesk Softimage software.

Based on cutting-edge research in autonomous control systems, Craft Director Studio provides interactive control and simulation of cameras and vehicles, which helps greatly reduce animation production times.

"Craft Director Studio provides artists with advanced, in-the-box, rigging and physics simulation capabilities, which helps them to animate cameras and vehicles more quickly and realistically," said Stig Gruman, Autodesk vice president of digital entertainment.

"It also allows artists to use a variety of input devices to create on-the-fly animation, helping make 3D animation as easy as playing a game."

Craft Director Studio is designed to help simplify the production challenges of 3D artists, industrial designers and architects.

The Craft Director Studio plug-in bundle will be included, free of charge, on the Samples DVDs that will be shipped with 3ds Max 2011, 3ds Max Design 2011 and Softimage 2011 software.
