Exocortex Species 1.0 has been released
Save time and simply the process of human character creation with Exocortex Species, a new character modelling and rigging system for Softimage
Exocortex Technologies, in collaboration with CG artists Chris Covelli and Eric Thivierge, has just released Exocortex Species.
This new software is the brainchild of Chris Covelli, it simplifies the process of human character creation from designing your character’s unique attributes, integrating sculpting results, to rig creation, even animation.
Quote: “Exocortex Species has been designed to meet the needs of production animators and TDs while simplifying the process of character creation. Chris realized that the types of characters required in production can be viewed as variations of the fundamental human form. Thus Chris designed a system that starts with a high quality human proportional rig, either male or female, which is then customized via a simple but powerful morphology blender to the unique character proportions required for your production.”
“Eric Thivierge [character TD at Animal Logic] joined the project to apply his Softimage plugin experience to make the best product possible. The resulting unique character form can then be converted, at the push of a button, to a high quality production rig that your animators will love working with.”
Species will enable you to create higher quality animated characters faster and at a lower cost, while avoiding the generic look that often come when purchasing off-the-shelf models.
Exocortex Species supports both Autodesk Softimage 2010, 2011 and 2012 on both Windows and Linux.
Floating and node locked licenses are available starting at $299. For full licensing details, please refer to the Species Purchase Options.
