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.

cuts down on the effort and cost
"Akeytsu cuts down on the effort and cost our studio expends to create top-quality animations. By allowing our artists to switch back and forth between animation and rigging with minimal time loss, we can focus on using the time we save to create more great content for Epic Tavern!"

I love how fast you can deliver
"I liked it from the beginning for it's clean and simple User Interface, loop cycle generation and well functional pipeline. I love how fast you can deliver a fully animated character into the game having only a plain mesh to start. It allows to effectively rig a character and being able to adjust the rig while animating. I am glad for the new feature of copying skins which saves me a lot of time by not having to redo rigs for similar looking characters. Akeytsu keeps my animations well organised using individual animation takes in Anim Bank which are then also exported into the FBX file."

it integrates super well
"As always, Akeytsu is my go to software when it comes to Character Animation. It integrates super well into my current production Pipeline. I can be up and going in Akeytsu very easily and the transfer to other software packages for rendering is very simple and intuitive. Great piece of software!"
