Max 2010, including new CAT plug-in. Whether you are new to 3ds Max, or a seasoned user, this is your chance to dive deep into some of the lesser known aspects of this phenomenal application, including CAT. Anyone involved in animation, game development or design visualization will benefit from attending.

What’s CAT? 3ds Max CAT 2010 is a character animation plug-in for Autodesk 3ds Max 2010 and 3ds Max Design 2010. It was designed by animators, for animators to help take the tedious technicalities out of 3D character animation. Its toolset enables easier character rigging, nonlinear animation, animation layering, motion capture import, and muscle simulation. 3ds Max CAT 2010 is faster, more stable, simpler to use, and is packed with cutting-edge features that help give artists an easier way to animate characters.

Louis Marcoux has been a 3D technical artist and software developer since 1994. He joined Discreet Logic in 1998 where he was involved in the broadcast graphics industry for 6 years before joining the 3ds Max team in Montreal [now a part of Autodesk].
