Craft Helicopter is a miracle for animators. Helicopter physics are extraordinarily complicated: scripting is a nightmare and key-framing doesn't cut it.. This animation tool makes it easy for the user to create realistic simulations: keyframes are saved automatically. The vehicle is controlled with an input device directly through 3ds max or Maya.
• Simulates helicopter flight directly in Max, Maya or Viz
• Artificial intelligence system to help you fly
• Motion is captured and key-framed automatically
• Extremely customizable: use any model you have
• Animate any vehicle model you have
• Customizable speed, lift etc.
• Extra rotor capability
Craft Helicopter has one camera that follows the helicopter from behind, and one camera is situated in the pilot's point of view. These simply choose the camera you want to look through during flight.
Customizable turbulence - either press a button to start the turbulence, or set the turbulence at a constant level. Strength and irregularity are also customizable.
How quickly the helicopter reacts to user input. This configuration also decides how suddenly the helicopter stops.
This will bring the helicopter to a stand-still. The function may seem unrealistic; however an experienced helicopter pilot always needs to be able to bring the helicopter to a stop. Our system will do this for you at the touch of a button.
