Massive is the market leader in software for crowd related visual effects and autonomous character animation.
This demo shows the latest version of the their combat sword agent, rendered in Arnold. There are four shots, made using the example setup files that come with the agent: 1) marching with shields up, 2) halting at a line on the terrain, 3) the classic clash, and 4) melee. You can see more videos from Massive Software at Vimeo.com. I’ve also attached another CGI test from VFX artist Dave Fothergill below. To see more of Dave’s videos be sure to check out his Vimeo page as well. (Source: The Creators Project)
