In Topic: 3D Character Animation

One resource that I find to be really useful for 3d characters is mixamo.com. They have a free character creator that lets you customize characters online and import them back into pretty much any game engine or 3D software. The also have a huge collection of customizable 3D animations

that can be applied to the characters. Their animations are really great for indie game developers, their price point is very cheap and their integration into game engines like Unity is seamless.The offer a few free animations, mostly to test out the pipeline before purchasing anything.

If you know how to use muddbox and can model pretty well they also have an

autorigger, that automatically rigs your characters online

. I havent tried it yet but from the videos it looks pretty awesome. Ive saved a ton of time on animations for my next iphone game.

One website that I find to be really useful for 3d animation as well as 3d characters is mixamo.com. They not only have a huge collection of customizable 3D animations but they provide really great resources for game developers and animators. They have a youtube channel with lots of reference animations as well as informational articles on the Evolution of Game Animation and how to add props to your scene using maya. Their animations are really great for indie game developers, their price point is very cheap and their integration into game engines like Unity is seamless. There are quite a few free motions, and their 3D character creator is

completely

free at the moment. You can use these characters in your projects freely. If you know how to use muddbox and can model pretty well they also have an autorigger, that automatically rigs your characters online. I havent tried it yet but from the videos it looks pretty awesome. Ive really saved a ton of time on animations for my next iphone game.
