New MMOs to use the tech.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - February 20, 2008 - NaturalMotion, Ltd., developers of the highly acclaimed euphoria and endorphin 3D motion synthesis technologies, announced today that CCP has licensed the morpheme animation middleware and will be integrating it into their smash-hit virtual world EVE Online, and into upcoming unannounced projects.
"Deeply immersive visual experiences facilitated by high-fidelity motion graphics are the hallmark of our virtual worlds," said Thor Gunnarsson, Vice President of Business Development at CCP. "As a valuable addition to our technology arsenal, morpheme will support CCP's drive to deliver vivid expressiveness to the avatars populating EVE and beyond."
morpheme is robust animation middleware designed to give developers and animators unprecedented creative control over the look of their final in-game animation by allowing them to author and preview blends, blend trees and transition graphs in real time.
"CCP has shown that they have the ability to take virtual worlds to new places," said Andy Payne, NaturalMotion's VP of Sales, Europe/Asia. "With NaturalMotion's morpheme technology, CCP will be able to blaze even more trails through the MMO space."
