Fully-rigged characters can be created online within minutes, group says

Further animations offered with Mixamo

Web-based animation service Mixamo has retooled its 3D character tech to enhance character customisation.

Using the tech, developers can go online to create fully-rigged characters for their projects in as quickly as a few minutes.

A full range of Mixamo animations can be applied to each character in real-time, and if the developer likes the result, the model can be bought and downloaded.

Mixamo Co-founder Stefano Corazza says the service provides an alternative to manually rigging characters for different levels of detail or resolutions.

“With our Custom Character Creator suite, users now have a great complement to our character upload and mapping feature,” Corazza added. “And any characters created work seamlessly with all of our motions using Mixamo’s automatic, real-time retargeting system.”

Mixamo says its range of characters are used in numerous capacities, from characters to NPCs, cut-scenes, animated shorts and even 3D storyboarding.

Both ‘standard’ and ‘pro’ characters are available, each at different costs and varied levels of detail.
