MoClip For Technical Artists
MoClip® is a set of 3D character animation tools and an online animation library that increases animator efficiency, organizes animation clips and allows studios and users to earn royalties on animated content.
Why Use MoClip?
A significant portion of your time and budget is being spent on character rigging and animation. Often you need to recreate similar motions, but on a different character, or in a different work environment. This unoptimized productivity drives artists away from doing the creative work for which they were hired in the first place!
MoClip let's you take existing animation clips from the MoClip public library and layout entire animation sequences quickly and easily. By clicking on the "Interop" button, you can view and edit your MoClip sequences directly in Maya or Motionbuilder. When you are finished, you simply download a processed FBX file which is ready to re-target on your existing characters.
It also comes bundled with a free biped and quadruped autorigger called Ultimate Rig that will shave DAYS off of a typical character rigging pipeline.
If you choose to upload your own clips to the public libray, you will have a way to mix, match and blend your motions in a simple and efficient way. Whenever someone else purchases a sequence containing your clip you will earn a royalty, giving you a nice return on investment for your work.
Using MoClip, you can:
- Quickly find clips to build entire animation sequences with a tag-based and poses clip browser
- Archive your animations in our library to benefit from our unique search engine capabilities
- Use state-of-the-art mixing and blending tools
- Use efficient tools that integrate into your existing pipeline and rigs
- Rig characters in minutes instead of days with UltimateRig (included)
- Easily retarget animation between your characters
- Seamlessly integrate with Autodesk® Maya® and MotionBuilder®
- Realize increased productivity
- Earn 20% royalties on the sales of public animations
How It Works
MoClip is free with a "pay as you go" philosophy. After having previewed, blended and placed the animation in a scene, users will be charged $8 per second of clip animation per character. Clip ownership is taken into consideration for the royalty calculation.
The MoClip infrastructure makes our servers and animation files inaccessible through the internet. Animation files are locally secured, encrypted and backed up in order to maintain the data integrity.
MoClip will help you create blazing fast animation and rigs, reduce your animation department overhead and save you valuable time and energy.
At this time, MoClip is working under Microsoft® Windows® and supports real-time integration with Autodesk® Maya® and MotionBuilder®. The MoClip animation files use the FBX file format and are fully usable under other 3D platforms. We are planning to also offer real-time integration to other mainstream 3D packages in the future.
