BZP Pro - Smart Skinner Biped for Maya - Professional

BZP Pro - Smart Skinner Biped for Maya - Professional


Smart Skinner Biped is a game-changing plugin for Autodesk Maya, that rigs and skins biped characters in minutes. The process of rigging and skinning is a tedious and specialized part of the animation pipeline that will take a highly skilled Technical Director up to 3 weeks. Smart Skinner allows students and professionals to produce studio level animation in minutes, which results in students having more time to focus on core curriculum and saving professionals thousands to millions of dollars (based on studio size) in production costs.

Created by BZP Pro, authorized Autodesk developers – led by Brent Zorich, formerly of ILM, Lucasfilm and EA – Smart Skinner changes the way organizations approach development and scheduling. Have a look at the Smart Skinner Biped product manual (pdf) or contact us for more information.
