IKinema RunTime for VR and Games
RunTime lets studios procedurally animate characters and multi-limbed creatures of differing proportions during gameplay. It significantly reduces animation assets whilst maintaining astonishingly believable body response to slash production time and cost. Eliminate 'invisible man syndrome’ with full-body visibility in VR. Interact with obstacles and perform tasks with incredible accuracy, all within the game-world. The technology also allows developers to use the same code to achieve the same quality animation with minimum effort and expense across multi-player, VR, consoles, PC, and mobile games. IKinema RunTime is integrated with Unreal Engine, and now available for Unreal 4.13.
