DAZ 3D and Mixamo have announced a collaboration to integrate products more tightly to improve and accelerate the 3D modeling and animation pipeline.
Under the deal, users of DAZ 3D’s latest generation human figures now have access to the entire Mixamo motion collection at www.mixamo.com and every Mixamo motion is guaranteed to work with any character created from the DAZ 3D human figures within DAZ Studio.
The DAZ 3D/Mixamo modeling and animation pipeline is said to improve productivity by up to 80 percent and reduce costs by up to 75 percent.
“The addition of the Mixamo motion collection to our 3D human figures greatly enhances the level of 3D animated content that our community can create,” says Dan Farr, CEO of DAZ. “Due to the ease at which users can customize and apply any Mixamo motion to any DAZ 3D character, their ability to create professional animations for their 3D projects increases dramatically.
“Mixamo propels 3D artists’ creativity and productivity by offering an online service that allows users to quickly generate top-notch animations for any 3D character,” says Mixamo Co-founder and CTO, Stefano Corazza. “There is great synergy between Mixamo and DAZ 3D in this regard – this partnership is great news for DAZ 3D community members because they get a huge collection of motions over which they have complete customization control, which they can then effortlessly bring into their projects.”
