Here's a screenshot of one of the projects we're currently working on.

Dinosaurs is a popular theme and lots of 3D models can be found on the internet. But personalizing and animating them is not easy.

The goal of this project is to make it easier to animate dinos:
-bending the neck in all directions
-bending the tail in all directions
-make them walk
-make them jump
-make them scream
-make them look in all directions

And also to make it easier to personalize the dino:
-changing the colours
-changing the pattern on the back (the orange stripes)
-changing the eyes

Next to this cartoon look, the dino effect will also support colour and normal mapping for a more realistic look.

Plan is to launch the Dinos and Dragons BixPack this Christmas, featuring a nice collection of dinosaurs and pterosaurs. All suggestions are welcomed!

it's really beautiful ... amazing!
But can a simple cartoon-like man ( the classic little white man you see in the slides ) who fits many presentations be done? We talked about it ....

realistic textures would be great for look..

Nice. Would it be possible to have a displacement map too, for the skin, for example to simulate scales like a lizard skin and which would make the dino a little more terrifying?
