Concord, Mass. - Dassault Systèmes has partnered with Mixamo, the online 3D animation service, to enable its roughly 270,000 3DVIA account holders to purchase Mixamo animated characters through the 3dvia.com online store for use in 3D development projects.
"Mixamo's animated characters will open doors for 3DVIA's community of 3D application developers," says Lynne Wilson, CEO of 3DVIA, Dassault Systèmes. "These animations will not only help developers shorten dev cycles, but provide them with compelling, pre-made content."
All Mixamo animations, which are bundled with their corresponding characters and textures at the time of download, have been optimized for easy use in 3DVIA Studio, 3DVIA's development tool for creating online 3D applications.
Eighty Mixamo animations with characters are currently available on the 3dvia.com Store, with plans to add more from the thousands available on the Mixamo Web. Characters range from humans to animals and are searchable via a "Mixamo" and "Animations" link from the top-level "Store" tab on 3DVIA's home page.
