With a goal of improving the overall character creation and animation
experience for 3D professionals, game artists and animators, Mixamo
has announced a partnership with TurboSquid, an online 3D
marketplace, to offer “Mixamo-certified” models assured to work with
the entire collection of motions found on the Mixamo web site
Users can now easily apply any high-quality Mixamo motions to a
growing list of TurboSquid character models that can be viewed
directly within the Mixamo interface, without uploading. While the
Mixamo online animation service is compatible with most 3D models,
these “Mixamo-certified” models in the TurboSquid marketplace have
been internally tested and are guaranteed to provide the user
seamless integration with Mixamo animations, says Stefano Corazza,
co-founder and chief technical officer of Mixamo.
After purchasing a “Mixamo-certified” model on TurboSquid.com, users
can then select a desired animation from Mixamo’s extensive
collection of production-quality character motions. Users may
visualize their certified model online as they customize the
automatically retargeted motions in real-time using director-level,
slider-based controls. Once customization is complete, users may
purchase and download the motion and merge into their character model
The collection of “Mixamo-certified” TurboSquid models currently
contains 10 3ds Max Biped System characters that are available for
purchase via the TurboSquid web site (http://www.turbosquid.com).
Additional certified models will be added regularly.
