ACS introduces a powerful and efficient environment that makes rigging and animating your character easy. ACS 2 features a flexible, general-purpose biped rig that can be quickly adjusted to work with a wide range of characters. The Rigging tools streamline the process of binding, weight painting and applying corrective morphs. When animating, the library of Poses and Actions makes it possible to reuse animation data between scenes or even different characters. Motion capture data can also be applied with just a few clicks using an optimized retargeting workflow. The ability to animate on top of the imported Motion can be done using both FK and IK controls. Characters can then be flattened into a simple hierarchy of joints with a single click, ready to export into external applications such as Unity or Unreal Engine.
