The Electric Dog team is proud to introduce Electric Dog Flanimate Power Tools v.6

 

EDAP Tools v.6 is a huge milestone not only for us and the constantly evolving Smart Magnet Rig system, but a turning point in the history of Flash Animation.
For the first time ever, with the release of EDAPT Tools v.6, professional-grade Inverse Kinematics tools are available for the Flash / Animate platform.

 

Here is an incomplete list of some of the more important new features:

  • Professional-grade implementation of Inverse Kinematics, available as a premium feature.
  • Full integration of Layer Parenting into the Smart Magnet Rig workflow.
  • FreeStyle Rigging tool – now a separate tool, with improved stability and performance.
  • SMR Helpers panel – a new interactive panel with a customizable set of buttons.
  • SMRize Parented – an automated script, which converts a Layer Parenting rig into a Smart Magnet Rig.
  • Layer Parenting Toggle – a new toggle command which works with SMR.
  • Make Edaptable – an automated script, which unifies the positions of Registration and Transformation Points.
  • Element Welder – a function which welds a child element to its parent for all KineFlex transformations.
  • EDAPT Commands panel – a new interactive panel providing alternative access to commands.

Just to add one more video with a longer demonstration how the IK tools are used for animating.

Have you got this to work in conjunction with the warp tool (bitmap or vector warp asset?) yet? That's the only thing stopping me from using it daily.

You can nest the warped assets inside graphic containers and that will work just fine.

? This is a plugin for Flash/Animate, so Animate now offers these tools via Flanimate.

Or am I misunderstanding something?

 

Anyway, excellent release, Nick!

Hi.

 

Yeah, it's a set of custom tools and extensions/plugins for Animate.

 

What I meant is that I would like Animate to have tools like those natively.
