Reflex Systems has made its Reflex Drama software and Reflex DNA technology available for hands-on trails at Siggraph 2001. Reflex Drama is an off-the-shelf, 3D software package for modeling, animating and rendering realistic human characters. The software's unique capabilities-officially unveiled at last year's Siggraph-have now been fully integrated and the software sports several new features including a Skeleton Implants feature, complete Motion Capture integration, and an improved model 'look' with bone, skin and muscle manipulation tools.
Reflex has also unveiled the Reflex Drama Human Development Kit (HDK) - a programming interface that provides access to the Reflex Drama environment enabling control of all human construction and animation elements. This feature will accelerate the development of a new class of application such as biomechanics simulators, genetics-based crowd simulators, advanced clothes and hair systems based on a solid human synthesis foundation.
Reflex Drama will be available in Q4, 2001 at a single-user price of $17,000 U.S. The Reflex Drama Human Development Kit will be included with the purchase price of the software.
