Autodesk Softimage 2012 is a graphics application developed by Autodesk, Inc. for creating three-dimensional computer graphics, 3D models, and animation. It is typically used in the advertising industry to create environments, characters, and other objects. This application is also used in films and video games.
Autodesk Softimage 2012 is a handy application for creating 3D animation and other visual effects. It has an intuitive user interface that offers several tools to simulate different objects such as particles and particle strands, rigid and soft-body dynamics, hair, cloth, and fluids. It makes use of a viewport utility tool for refining animation, and bullet physics for enhancing dynamics for objects that are very small and particle-based. This application has several animation features, such as layers and mixers that combine different animation clips in a non-linear manner. Users can change the manipulation of animated objects since the animation operators are stored in the construction history stack feature of this application.
Other features of Autodesk Softimage 2012 include the following:
• Interactive Creative Environment - a major tool used for creating complex visual effects.
• Face Robot – a tool used for creating distinct facial animation effects.
• CrowdFX – a tool is used for creating sophisticated and complex simulations.
