DeepMotion Launches ‘Animate 3D’ AI-Powered Platform

3D animation cloud service gives users the ability to capture human motion by converting 2D video files to 3D animations; the platform accepts .MP4 .MOV or .AVI files and generates high fidelity .FBX or .BVH animations.

DeepMotion has officially launched its 3D animation cloud service, Animate 3D, an AI-powered platform that turns 2D video files into 3D animations for use in games, film, and other creative applications. The new platform eliminates the need for traditional mocap hardware and suits, providing easy, accessible full-body motion capture, turning around animations in minutes. It dramatically lowers the barrier to creating 3D animations for users ranging from amateurs to longtime industry professionals

Animate 3D empowers creative ideas with the ability to capture human motion by simply uploading videos found online or captured with a personal device. With its perceptive AI technology, users can generate and download 3D animations with custom avatars in minutes, making the process of capturing motion fun and simple.

The platform accepts .MP4 .MOV or .AVI files and generates high fidelity .FBX or .BVH animations. AI-powered, easy motion capture reduces development time and enables an independent production pipeline. To provide a creative visual aid, users can upload their own custom 3D characters to preview their animations on, and then download their animation already retargeted onto their characters. Between the web full of video content and users being able to shoot their own content, iterating quickly, and creating a library of 3D motions is easier than ever before.

“Creating innovative animations with our body expressions without heavy motion capture gear, and being given the ability to extract classic human motion from the vast amount of videos on the internet, is a dream to many of us working in the entertainment and social media industries,” commented DeepMotion founder and CEO Kevin He. “At DeepMotion, we have been hard at work over the past five years to employ biomechanical simulation and deep learning technologies to turn that dream into reality. Now, with great excitement, I’d like to announce that our first AI-powered cloud-based service, Animate 3D, has officially launched! We look forward to empowering all the content creators in the world to create dynamic 3D animations with their favorite characters using nothing more than a video clip and a web browser."

Animate 3D is easily accessible for all levels of users. The service runs through any browser and does not require any software or hardware to begin creating animations. The introductory free account allows users to explore what the service is capable of. From there, a variety of paid tiers are available to address the needs of any level of creator, including API integrations.
