3D animation. Reinvented
Akeytsu disrupts the status-quo with its simplicity, velocity and ergonomics. With its focus on the artist’s needs, Akeytsu does away with the dated and complex technical constraints of the traditional 3D animation toolset. Designed by animators, it offers a brand new approach to skinning, rigging and animation. Built from meticulous feedback and testing, the UI design and intuitive and accessible features meet every artist’s expectations.
Akeytsu simplifies the rigging workflow by doing away with traditional control rigs and manipulators and instead lets the artist handle directly the mesh and skeleton. The Akeytsu 3D animation toolset is designed for both the aspiring artist and the professional animator to produce large volumes of high quality animation quickly and easily. Dedicated solely to rigging and animation, Akeytsu has one of the fastest learning curves of any software in the 3D industry. It provides flexible and intuitive functionalities that are easy to use, without making compromises on the quality of the content that can be produced.
Create a pose in a quick time with the Akeytsu Spinner, a smart 2D manipulator. Manage keyframing with the Akeytsu Stacker, the most efficient keyframe editor in its class. Edit the F-Curve in the 3D viewport and manipulate the IK solvers through the FK skeleton. Akeytsu optimizes your creative control and allows you to switch seamlessly between rigging and animation.
Akeytsu has been perfected over an extensive twelve beta version history and is already widely used by indie game developers and animators before it’s much anticipated release. During this long, deliberate period of unlimited free beta access, Akeytsu has amassed a ton of user feedback from a variety of sources. This information has been used to develop, not only a very stable software, but one with proven gains of productivity within different game workflows. Production ready, reliable and stable Akeytsu is perfect for any creator of animation.
