Academic Program Brings Craft to USC

Sweden-based Craft Animations AB has established an Academic Partner Program and announced USC’s School of Cinematic Arts as its most recent partnership.

The program subsidizes the cost of the company’s Craft Director’s Tools package to qualifying schools and universities. It offers free licenses to aid with relevant coursework, early access to and input into Craft’s upcoming 3-D technologies, and technical and supervisory support for some projects.

Craft Director’s Tools is a package that streamlines traditional animation processes using high-end artificial intelligence and autonomous control systems.
