Type: 3D character animation
Website: NaturalMotion - endorphin
endorphin is the industry's first 3D animation tool based on Dynamic Motion Synthesis. With endorphin, animators can create animation data in a fraction of the time of traditional techniques such as key-framing and motion capture.
At the heart of endorphin are its Adaptive Behaviours, which - unlike animation data - are completely interactive. With Adaptive Behaviours, 3D characters essentially animate themselves. Move two Football players close to each other and one will automatically tackle the other one, realistically trying to grab hold of his legs and bringing him down .
Or not. It really is up to you. endorphin allows animators to direct scenes in real-time in a way they have never been able to do before. You can change parameters or change behaviours and see the results instantly on the screen in front of you. When you're done, export animation data in one of the many formats, ready for use in your game or VFX shot.
