July 27, 2023

Chaos has acquired AXYZ design – a developer of 3D/4D animation software – designed to add realistic people and crowds to architectural visualisations. This acquisition expands a growing ecosystem of real-time visualisation tools, photorealistic renderers and 3D asset libraries that help teams realise built experiences around the world.


AXYZ’s anima 5 software, used by powerhouses like HOK and Gensler, is one of the ways to bring dynamic 3D/4D people into a visualisation. Featuring over 2,500 scanned characters, anima helps designers add high-fidelity digital humans that walk, run, laugh and move to their scenes, giving projects a realistic quality that immerses viewers in a design. With onboard tools for tailoring loops and AI crowds, there’s no better way to bring believable movement into a visual project.
