How Mixamo Accelerated nDreams' Productivity
nDreams approached Mixamo for custom motion generation to be integrated into one of their upcoming titles on Playstation Home.
Here's how Mixamo impacted nDreams' art pipeline:
Seamless Maya control rig support: Mixamo motions were baked directly onto nDreams' character rig.
Director level, real-time customization on Mixamo.com: nDreams was able to customize to their creative preferences before baking onto their character rig.
Custom motion-capture for nDreams' specific motion needs (We work directly with clients to meet their project needs).
Working with Mixamo has been an incredibly smooth process. I thank them for their efforts!
