Mountain View, CA, November 30, 1999 --- Autonomous Effects(AFX) is
pleased to announce the availability of SceneGenie(tm) and SceneGenie
Limited(tm), two new plug-in suites for 3D Studio MAX(tm) R2.5 and R3.0,
at www.afx.com. SceneGenie and SceneGenie Limited offer a level of
problem-solving capability unprecedented on any platform, extending the
basic idea of Inverse Kinematics to Inverse Anything(tm).
SceneGenie brings sophisticated animation, 3D matching, and motion
capture capabilities to 3D Studio MAX. With over 50 components,
SceneGenie can match, track, and control just about anything. Analyze
any number of video or film clips simultaneously with
resolution-independent subpixel tools. Let SceneGenie adjust the scene
until the rendered version comes out just so: until the rendered color
matches a clip, a shadow falls at the right spot, or the light level
matches a flickering fireplace.
SceneGenie and SceneGenie Limited solve difficult animation tasks
without complex formulas -- including tasks that can't be solved with
formulas no matter how long you study that old trigonometry book!
Animate complex mechanisms or path problems. Do inverse kinematics even
when motion is created by modifiers or animated morphs. Use the
right-click features to quickly add or switch between different target
objects, or to switch back and forth between forward and inverse
kinematics. Bake SceneGenie controls--or any MAX controls--to keyframes
for further editing.
SceneGenie Limited is a subset of SceneGenie tailored and priced
specifically for animators, featuring all of SceneGenie's powerful
