Improved animation tools

AVAILABLE WITH EXTENSION 1

Get updated animation layer editor, SplineIK and Cluster Deformation tools.

Improved animation tools add SplineIK and Cluster Deformation to help you to create more diverse and complex character animations.

An updated Game Export tool makes it easier to manage and export multiple animation clips in one or more files.

  • The animation layer editor is now available, supporting a 2-layer system for editing animation.
  • Character Controls and the HumanIK rigging system make it easier to create more complex animated characters and to re-use animations across different character models.
  • Animators can now bake retargeted animation to the Control rig for further editing.

Note: Extension 1, 2 and 3 features are available only to current Maya LT subscribers as part of the extension releases for Maya LT 2016 software.
