Create your Character Animation Masterpiece
Creature is the Cutting-edge 2D Animation Software designed to add stunningly fluid animation to your digital content. Take advantage of Creature's Directable Automated Animation Engine and powerful workflow to produce amazingly complex animation in an incredibly easy and time-efficient manner. Creature is the ideal animation Tool for game developers, digital artists and web designers wanting to add that special animated magic to make your content come alive.
Benefits: Reduced Art requirements:
A single atlas of character body parts is all that is required to generate beautifully complex animations. This reduces the amount of art required which means reduced time and cost for generating digital content.
Save Time with Automated Procedural Animation:
Bone and mesh motors in Creature allow the automated generation of highly complex motions like walk cycles, wing flapping and blinking eyes. This is a huge time saver, reducing the tediousness of moving bones frame by frame in order to achieve a desired effect.
Creature generates animation via bone/skeletal and mesh deformation methods. This reduces the size of your exported animation data compared to traditional animation which saves out multiple images on a frame by frame basis.
Simple, yet powerful:
Creature is designed for both traditional and complex technical animators. Traditional animators will appreciate the rotoscoping and onion-skinning features of Creature. Technical animators can employ sophisticated deformation motors, motion capture and mathematical function scripting to animate highly intricate character rigs.
Stunning Results via Groundbreaking Technology
Creature will make you rethink how 2D animation is done. At the heart of Creature lies the Directable Automated Animation Engine, an incredibly powerful technology that allows you to produce motion you might not thought had been possible with traditional skeletal animation software. Creature offers traditional tools like FK and IK chains for animation and then expands beyond that to offer you some very advanced tools: Physics Bend Motors, Automated Walk Cycle Generation, Directable Flesh/Muscle/Soft Body Dynamics, Advanced Intelligent Bone Weighting, 2D Motion Capture and much more.
Your art ready for the world.
Creature exports animation in multiple file formats ready to plug into your content. Easily export your animation into image sequences, sprite sheets, movie files and FBX. For additional power and flexibility, Creature allows the export of your animations into Creature's custom JSON format. We provide Source Code for the Runtimes of most major Game Toolkits to read in and display the animations in your own work.
