Ikinema has begun the public beta of its new browser-based animation service, the company has announced.
WebAnimate is available for free during the Beta period, and it allows users to fashion rigs, manipulate bones and retarget/customise motion capture data and animation.
Users can also use the platform to port motion capture data from cloud or local sources directly to their models.
The mo-cap studio stated the tool-set has been designed for smaller studios and amateurs, and after the Beta users will only be charged for commercial use.
“It’s time to make high-quality tools available to everyone in the animation community,” said Ikinema CEO Alexandre Pechev.
“We recognized a need for an affordable solution for small studios and amateurs exploring this field, so we adapted our product to address it.
"WebAnimate will give all indie developers a new power tool for their creative arsenal.”
