Founded in 2006 and based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Craft Animations™ is the creator of Craft Director Studio™, a series of animation tools for Autodesk® 3ds Max® and Autodesk® Maya®. This new technology enables you to control the vehicle/camera by following a target or with any input device somewhat like playing a video game. All physical calculations are made within the software which makes vehicles react accurately to terrain and cameras bring a human touch to your animations. The best part is that the sequence is key framed automatically which is why animators save up to 90% of the time spent on animating.

Key Benefits

Visual Effects for Film and Broadcast – Craft Director Tools providerealistic and accurate vehicle incident and traffic animation, visualizations and scene fly-throughs in less time than it takes them to write teleprompter text, allowing more time for creativity.

Previsualization – Craft Director Tools are interactive, providing better real-time control for precise movements exactly as envisioned by a producer or director.

Game Development – Craft Directors Tools allow game developers to enhance in-game cinematics through a modular, configurable system that replicates a specific rig within Autodesk’s Maya or 3ds Max. Artists may actually “drive” a vehicle within the creative environment, achieving a more realistic product in less time.

Architectural Visualization – Film walk-throughs of architectural designs are easily achieved through Craft Director Tools’ unique camera angles and views. Cameras quickly and easily navigate exterior to interior layouts of a scene in real-time, saving the time and cost of an outside animation contractor.
