Hello, A few years ago I was doing some work for animation, and accidentally stumbled upon a program that was really cool/usefull. Basically, you defined a few things (people, objects) and what they were supposed to do (punch that other guy with your arm/shoot him) and it would generate some really good animations. One of the examples that it came with (which really impressed me) was 2 people being chased by this big monster (gorrila type thing). It grabbed them both and killed them with a very realistic animation, I was able to remake that in about half an hour. Fast forward a few years, and now I can't find it. I'm think it's name was Natural Selection, but google didn't help (and the forum sticky didn't seem to have it). I only ever got a trial version. Does anyone know of the software I'm talking about?

No, that wasn't it... (Natural Selection is just what I keep thinking of, probably had something to do with the fact that they used some sort of genetic algorithm for their animatinos)

I love Endorphin, really helpful. The only downside is that you need a very expensive license to use it both commercially and noncommercial. Which means you can't export your animations, only export as a video.
