Alias Releases Free MotionBuilder Personal Learning Edition

Based on the MotionBuilder Standard 6 feature set, the application provides free usage for graphics professionals, students and character animation enthusiasts.Alias MotionBuilder is designed to generate character performances and animation. MotionBuilder PLE includes all the features and functionality found in MotionBuilder Standard including real-time performance, animation blending and non-linear animation. MotionBuilder is based on the platform-independent 3D authoring and interchange format, FBX, which lets it import files from any 3D application that supports the FBX file format. Unlike the Standard version, however, export to FBX from PLE is not possible.

MotionBuilder PLE for Macintosh and Windows is available for free download from the Alias site.
