Creating memorable characters in Shade, or importing characters made in other applications to take advantage of Shade's superior rendering platform.
Shade 12 Pro introduces new magnet tools that allow you to modify your geometry easily for rapid creation of expressions. Store different expressions using a Shade Switch Joint, so you can switch between expressions manually or interact with them on the Motion time line.
Shade Standard and higher includes a mature Inverse Kinematics system for creating complex, hierarchical motion characters - either bone or skin based hierarchies. Shade Smart IK is a panel based control system that lets you set up control panels for precise control over posing and animating complex characters. Smart IK comes to life in sequence motion, or traditional key frame based animation in the Motion timeline.
