Having reviewed the first version of IKinema back when it was the debutante at the solvers’ ball (Reviews, 3D World 142), it’s refreshing to have seen the plug-in gain widespread adoption and generally make a good name for itself.

Distilled from research into control armatures, the key selling points were the ability to quickly set up characters for animation with a few clicks in a tidy interface.
