Animation production houses Cubic Motion and Imagination Studios have formed a partnership that will see the two collaborating so as to offer a integrated service.
By combining Cubic Motion's technology-powered facial animation specialism and Imagination studio's wider animation production capabilities and performance capture capacity, the partnership promises to deliver a 'seamless' integrated service, suitable for games, film, television and trailers.
"We try to offer our clients the simplest and most cost-effective route to the highest quality results," said John Klepper, director of Imagination Studios. "We're particularly keen to provide solutions for large-scale projects where the ability to process very high volumes on rapid timescales is paramount.
"Cubic Motion are leaders in the field and consistently produce large amounts of facial animation of the highest quality; by streamlining our techniques to work together we are able to significantly improve overall quality, turnaround time and price of solutions to clients, who need the very best in character animation."
"We are delighted to be working closely with the excellent team at Imagination Studios and to ensure seamless collaboration on client projects," added Gareth Edwards, director of Cubic Motion. "Our specialised knowledge of facial animation combined with Imagination's great studio expertise allows us to deliver integrated solutions of the highest quality to the game, film, and TV markets."
The collaborative service has been developed over a number of previously unannounced projects on which Imagination Studios and Cubic Motion have worked in unison.
