Sweden-based Craft Animation has announced an annual licensing program for its Craft Director Studio Complete and Special Edition Packages.
The renewable offer allows users to integrate the animation toolset into their pipelines for a full year at discount of 75 percent.
“We realize that when it comes to creating an efficient production pipeline, our customers need a flexible, cost-effective solution,” says Deborah Lygonis, Craft Animations founder and CEO. “With our CDS Annual Licensing Program, artists, designers and production studios — operating on any budget — now have an opportunity to utilize our highly complex tools at a competitive price point for trial, specific project use or infinitely.”
Offering over 20 animation tools and six special edition bundles, CDS is based on cutting-edge research in autonomous control systems and extends creative possibilities by eliminating the time-consuming tasks of key framing, scripting and rigging. This helps to reduce animation production times by up to 80 percent for 3D animators, visual effects artists, product and architectural designers, game developers and forensic specialists.
Craft Animations’ renewable Annual Licensing Program ranges from $246 to $1,248. Annual fees include Up2Date support and software upgrades. CDS Complete and the CDS Military Edition additionally include two hours of online training.
