New Plugin: Animation

Fast Animation Surface Tool (F.A.S.T.) has been inspired by Pixar's Presto. It not only speeds up your rigging workflow, but most of all it improves your animation efficiency.

You no longer need to create additional objects to control your rigs, everything is triggered by predefined mesh zones and your mouse movements. This helps prevent scene slowdowns due to adding more elements, and most importantly you can control your rig directly on the mesh, without any visual interference, controller selection or a separate UI.

Fast Animation Surface Tool is available for Max 2010 to 2015 and costs €120.
