Industry-Standard for 4D Animations and Neural Crowds Joins Chaos’ Professional 3D Ecosystem for Architects and Designers
Today, Chaos announces its acquisition of AXYZ design, a leading developer of 3D/4D animation software designed to add realistic people and crowds to architectural visualizations. This acquisition expands a growing ecosystem of real-time visualization tools, photorealistic renderers and 3D asset libraries that help teams realize built experiences around the world.
Used by powerhouses like HOK and Gensler, AXYZ’s anima 5 software is one of the fastest ways to bring dynamic 3D/4D people into a visualization. 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.
Increasing the breadth of digital people has been a top request from customers, particularly in architecture. With the acquisition of anima, Chaos can meet the needs of its customers while setting up new ways to make high-fidelity 3D/4D human character assets more accessible than they’ve ever been. Chaos is currently planning how to best integrate the software with existing products like Chaos V-Ray and Chaos Corona, whose users already use anima on a daily basis.
