Animation middleware developer IKinema released its free beta for WebAnimate, an"all-in-one platform" enabling developers to retarget and customize animations in their browsers.
WebAnimate's toolset is built with independent studios and individuals in mind, and is designed to allow them to "fashion rigs, manipulate bones, retarget/ customize motion capture data and animation" in a few minutes.
Users can "port motion capture data from cloud or local sources directly to their models", and tap into a number of free mocap files posted online. Current supported formats include bvh and FBX with c3d planned for the future.
will remain free of charge during its beta period, though after its full release, users will be charged when they export animations or poses for commercial use.
