Craft Animations has announced the discounted availability of the complete Craft Director Studio (CDS) tool suite. From now through Sept. 30, 2010, all artists utilizing 3ds Max 2011 or Softimage 2011 can visit http://www.craftanimations.com to take advantage of a nearly 40% CDS discount.
The complete CDS suite includes nine specialized virtual cameras and seven vehicle tools that increase interactive control and simulation, and provides the ability to enhance cinematics through a modular, configurable system that replicates a specific rig’s animation within a given project. 3D artists may literally “drive” a vehicle, or “direct” a camera within the creative environment, garnering a more realistic effect in less time.
The promotional CDS tools included on the Installation DVDs shipped with 3ds Max 2011, 3ds Max Design 2011 and Softimage 2011 software includes the Craft SoftMotionCam, Craft ObserverCam, Craft MultiStateCam, Craft HumanizerCam, as well as four Craft Pre-rigged Models.
Regularly priced at US$4,970, the complete CDS suite is now available to users of 2011 versions of 3ds Max and Softimage for $3,000 through Sept. 30. To obtain this discount, users must contact Craft Animations via firstname.lastname@example.org — or outreach to their local reseller and provide proof of Autodesk 2011 purchase.
