Cascadeur is an AI-powered standalone software that facilitates the creation of 3D keyframe animation for humanoids or other characters. Unlike any other animation software, Cascadeur makes animation from scratch or editing an existing one so easy and fun that you won’t even realize the hard work that goes into it. It uses AI-assisted tools that enable you to generate key poses rapidly and adjust secondary motion with a physical result in real-time, and that too while retaining full control at any point.
Cascadeur’s Quick Rigging Tool allows you to generate an auto-rig for your character with just a drag-and-drop of its joints. You can rig standard skeletons from various software with just a single click. If you want to customize the auto-generated rig or create your own for non-humanoid characters, it’s easy as pie.
Cascadeur’s unique intelligent rig, powered by neural networks, allows you to create poses effortlessly and quickly. Move the main control points, and the AI will position the rest of the body automatically, giving you full control over the result.
With the AutoPhysics Tool, you can create realistic and natural motion, while altering your animation as little as possible. Once you’re satisfied with the result, you can easily snap it to your character. The suggested animation is displayed on a green instance of your character, and you can easily tweak any body part separately, adding secondary motion to make your animation come alive.
Cascadeur offers an array of animation tools such as Trajectories, Ghosts, Copy Tool, Tween Machine, IK/FK Interpolation, Graph Editor, Video Reference Import, Cameras, and many more. The software is constantly adding new tools to make all its features user-friendly.
Cascadeur works seamlessly with.FBX and . DAE files, making it straightforward to integrate into almost any animation workflow. Whether you’re using Windows or Linux, you can download Cascadeur to revolutionize your animation process.
