Zaxwerks PROANIMATOR (2006RPA4.0M) Product Details
Time. Money. Quality. Pick three.
The Invigorator ProAnimator is a complete rethink of the way animations are created. Other animation products force the artist to think like a technician, focusing on the small particulars in the process of building a completed work. This can be very frustrating for non-experts who often like to rapidly experiment with dozens of different ideas.
Zaxwerks enables that experimentation with its new "Object Flow" technology. This enables the user to act like a Director rather than a Technician - looking at the big picture rather than having to toil through the details. The result is that complex and beautiful animations can be created very quickly. ProAnimator uses Zaxwerks' world-class rendering engine, which is used every day to create on-air graphics for Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS, Disney, MTV and dozens of others.
"Forget everything you've ever heard about 3D animation," says Zax Dow, President of Zaxwerks. "It's no longer slow. It's no longer difficult. It's now available to the everyday user in a form that is as close to a one-button solution as you are ever going to get."
The Invigorator fits beautifully within the post-production environment and enables facilities who ordinarily couldn't offer 3D animation, the ability to deliver high quality, cost effective 3D from each of their editing bays.
The work flow of the ProAnimator resembles video editing more than it does traditional 3D animating. Animation clips are spliced, arranged, and trimmed to create a story. As you progress through the edit, clips can be added, deleted, rearranged, lengthened, shortened and duplicated. During this process the 3D objects are automatically adjusted to handle the changes. The user never touches a keyframe. This keeps the user focused on the art direction without having to worry about the technical details.
Key Highlights of the ProAnimator include:
^^ World's best 3D title and logo modeler
^^ Highly efficient work flow. Real time feedback
^^ Easy Mode for quick starts. Advanced Mode for adding details
^^ Create an entire animation with one click. Dozens of presets supplied with the program

^^ Existing 3D objects can be imported from Maya, 3D Studio, Lightwave, SoftImage and many other programs
^^ Movies are rendered with alpha channels in QuickTime format, and can be used in applications such as Avid's Xpress DV, Apple's Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier, Adobe After Effects, and nearly every other video editing or compositing program that imports QuickTime movies
