Virtual Puppetry

Virtual Puppetry understands the development of life-like virtual characters is a challenging and rapidly changing industry that demands highly skilled techniques with an assortment of abilities. This includes integrating "cutting edge research and development" in with artist driven solutions. Virtual Puppetry focuses on research into advanced physics, graphic, and artificial intelligence, such as, active skeletons, soft-body systems, and the creation of interactive computer-animated tools for complex dynamic environments.

best motivations
active solutions

We aim to provide resources, such as, software and training, to help developers and artists improve the quality of their work and reduce production times. For example, specialist visualization tools quickly draw attention to problem areas - showing patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at the motion alone.

Technology Innovations

Animation techniques and tools are constantly changing. Hence, it's necessary to stay ahead of the curve by exploring and integrating in `bleeding' edge research. At Virtual Puppetry, we are always pushing the limits of what is possible to meet tomorrow's technologies. Creating high-end animated solutions requires complex software engineering that crosses multiple disciplines, including robotics, physics, and artificial intelligence.
