Antics V4 now available to download

Champagne all round here at Antics HQ – Antics V4 is now available to download from our website!

As we pass through the 10,000 Antics users mark, V4 features adaptive lighting, realtime shadows, character to character interactions and more.

All existing Antics users, please keep an eye on your inbox as you will receive an email in the coming days with instructions on how you can upgrade.

All new lighting system

The new lighting system allows shadows to be cast adding depth and realism to movies. At the touch of a button you can create incredible atmosphere and amazing effects.

Character to character interactions

It is now possible to command your characters to interact with each other. You can tell your actors to hug, kiss, shake hands, all from a handy menu.

Improved path planning and animation blending

The intelligent path planning in Antics has been improved to ensure characters take the optimum route to their destination. Animation has also been improved to make a characters transition between states appear more natural

Improved Google SketchUp importer

Many usability and workflow enhancements have been made to the Google SketchUp importer. It is now even easier to use than ever.

We have also made changes to our product lineup and pricing. The Antics V3.1 BasePack and ProPack have been replaced by Antics V4 Home and Professional.

The Home version is our standalone product, still free to download and is not time limited.

The Professional version is now even better value for money at $295, and includes the full range of importers (.3ds, .skp, .fbx, .bvh).

For full details of how the two versions compare, take a look at this overview

Many thanks to everyone in the growing Antics community. You’ve given us great feedback, and some great videos, which have helped us shape V4. Keep the feedback coming, we love to hear from you!

  6. I enjoy you because of all your valuable work on this web page.
    My mum really likes carrying out internet research and it’s simple to grasp why. I know all regarding the compelling way you make informative guides through the website and therefore recommend contribution from some other people on this subject matter while our princess is now understanding a whole lot. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. You’re the one doing a really great job.

    Thanks for these tips. One thing I also believe is that credit cards offering a
    0% interest often attract consumers in zero rate of interest, instant endorsement and easy on the net balance transfers, but beware of the number one factor that is going to void your own 0% easy street annual percentage rate and also
    throw you out into the poor house quick.

  8. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on
    the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
    and defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

  9. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this
    blog. I am hoping to see the same high-grade blog posts by you in
    the future as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities
    has encouraged me to get my own, personal website now ;
