Advanced character animation systems for

FINAL-IK Puppet Master

FINAL-IK

Play overview

Features

01

Full Body Biped IK

Final IK includes an extremely flexible and powerful high-speed lightweight Full Body IK solver that can be used for real-time procedural animation modification and an unimaginable variety of animation effects.

02

Grounder

Grounder is an automatic vertical foot placement and alignment correction system. Grounder works with a wide variety of characters, from basic bipeds to spiders, bots and even quadrupeds.

03

Interaction System

The Interaction System is designed for creating procedural in-game interactions on the fly.

04

AIM IK

Aim IK is the easiest tool for creating character aiming systems or correcting any existing animation-based aiming system.

05

Rotation Limits

The Rotation Limit components in Final IK can be used independently or together with CCD, FABRIK or Aim IK to create complex constrained rigs for mechanical arms or turrets.

06

The Algorithms

Final IK contains a wide variety of Inverse Kinematics solvers, including CCD, FABRIK, Limb IK, Look At IK and Aim IK.

01

Animation Effects

With Full Body Biped IK, you can vastly reduce the amount of pre-baked animation and it’s footprint in the memory, reduce the repetitiveness of the animations and create dynamic real-time interactions with the scene and other characters.

01

VR

Final-IK makes it easy to map an animated 3D character to the position and rotation of the VR headset and hand controllers.

02

Grounder

Grounder is an automatic vertical foot placement and alignment correction system. Grounder works with a wide variety of characters, from basic bipeds to spiders, bots and even quadrupeds.

02

Flexibility

Grounder makes sure the feet are positioned and aligned to the ground surface while maintaining the look and feel of the animation as much as possible. The solver can even be rotated to enable the characters to walk on the walls and ceilings.

Interaction System

The Interaction System is designed for creating procedural in-game interactions on the fly.

03

Basics

Just create an Interaction Object to interact with, animate it if you please, add the Interaction System to the character and specify a couple of weight curves for the interaction. It has never been so easy to make your characters dynamically interact with the scene.

04

AIM IK

Aim IK is the easiest tool for creating character aiming systems or correcting any existing animation-based aiming system.

04

Aiming Systems

AimIK can produce very stable and natural looking retargeting of character animation, it hence has great potential for use in weapon aiming systems. With AimIK we are able to offset a single forward aiming pose or animation to aim at targets even almost behind the character.

04

Simplicity

Attach the component, set up the bone references and you are ready to go.

Final IK contains a wide variety of Inverse Kinematics solvers, including CCD, FABRIK, Limb IK, Look At IK and Aim IK.

06

Extend & Combine

All IK components in Final IK can be combined and layered on top of each other for creating more complex IK rigs.
