New Mixamo Debuting in March

SAN FRANCISCO  –  Mixamo will be releasing a new version of its online animation service in March 2015.  

Called Mixamo 2.0, the new version includes major updates to the user interface and user experience that make finding, creating, organizing, sharing and purchasing Mixamo’s 3D character assets and animations easier than ever. 

Current users will receive a notification when Mixamo 2.0 launches. New users who want to be notified will need to sign up for a new account at Mixamo 2.0 will be on display in Mixamo’s booth at GDC 2015 (booth 310).

New Mixamo 2 feature list includes:

Streamlined User Experience - Users can now animate their 3D characters with a faster and more straightforward workflow. For example, users will be able to access the animation editing features from more screens, including the search results page.

Improved Search Capabilities - A faster, more accurate search function helps artists find what they’re looking for in seconds. In addition, search results will deliver more options, such as characters, animation packs, and individual animations together.

Expanded Animation Packs - Mixamo 2.0 adds 20 new animation packs spanning different game genres/activities. Every set is also fully customizable.

WebGL Viewer - The new WebGL Viewer was developed in collaboration with Verold for 10x faster browsing of characters and animations. Now artists will be able to search and modify assets on their desktop and mobile browsers, with no plugin required.

Bulk Download - Users can noworganize and download multiple animations at once, which speeds up the work process of creating characters going through a number of different movements.

Increased User Feedback - Artists can now “favorite” characters and animations and share them with their team for review.
