NaturalMotion Sets Sail for Australian Technology Tour to Show morpheme 2.0 Animation System

NaturalMotion, the animation technology company behind the revolutionary euphoria engine, is touching down in Australia for a two week technology tour from November 13– 28, surrounding the Game Connect Asia Pacific conference in Brisbane, Australia. While in the region, the company is seeking appointments with interested game developers and publishers to discuss the upcoming release of morpheme 2.0.

morpheme is robust animation middleware designed to give developers and animators unprecedented creative control over the look of their final in-game animation by allowing them to author and preview blends, blend trees and transition graphs in real time. Since its launch in 2007, morpheme has seen rapid adoption in the games industry, including customers such as Bioware, Eidos and Disney.

Interested parties should contact Christian Staack at christian.staack@naturalmotion.com.

About NaturalMotion

NaturalMotion Ltd. is the first company to create 3D character animation software based on Dynamic Motion Synthesis (DMS), a technology that utilizes Adaptive Behaviors and artificial intelligence to simulate the human-nervous system. Based on research conducted at Oxford University on the control of body movements, NaturalMotion’s euphoria synthesizes 3D character animation in real time on PLAYSTATION®3, Xbox 360® and PC. Having debuted in Rockstar Games’ record-breaking Grand Theft Auto IV, euphoria is also featured in LucasArts’ Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

NaturalMotion’s off-line DMS product endorphin creates animation an order of magnitude faster than traditional techniques, and is widely used in the film and game industries, with customers such as Sony, Giant Killer Robots, The Mill, Capcom, Namco and Konami.

NaturalMotion’s third product, morpheme, is the industry’s first graphically authorable animation engine designed to give animators full control over the look of their animations in-game. Announced morpheme customers include Ninja Theory, IO Interactive, Bioware and Red 5.
