Chapter 15. character studio > cs Features and Benefits

cs Features and Benefits

character studio is a revolutionary approach to character animation. It separates the components of the animation process into individual, interchangeable file structures that can be saved, edited, combined, reused, mixed, and matched. So the geometry of the character is independent from the animation of the character's bones. This means you could spend a week animating an ape dancing (Figure 15.1) and it might actually end up as a dancing alligator, or a dancing cowboy, a dancing robot, or even a dancing baby (Figure 15.2).
