Originally posted on 4 January: scroll down for updates.

XrayUnwrap and XrayBlendSkin creator Raylight has announced XrayCat Survival Toolkit (or ‘CAT ST’ for short): a new plugin designed to speed up workflow in 3ds Max’s CAT character animation system.

Extending CAT’s native tools
The tool adds shortcuts for the most common tasks when setting up a rig, plus new Layer and Clip Managers – the latter useful for backing up CAT layers and applying them to a new rig.

There is also a new Pose Manager (shown above), which enables users to “copy and paste poses [in Animation Mode], mirror the rig, [and] swap arms, hands, legs and feet with only one mouse click.”

ReCap Studio handles data preparation, enabling users to import, organise and clean data ranging from “non-intelligent, black-and-white sparse point clouds” to 3D models. The software is currently available for free
‘Streamlined and scalable’
According to the press blurb: “ReCap is the first industry solution to bring together laser scanning and photogrammetry into one streamlined process.”

Knald Technologies has released an open beta of Knald, an interesting new map-generation tool it describes as “the world’s first GPU-powered solution for generating ‘bake quality’ textures from any 2D source image”.
The software generates the usual range of maps, including normal, AO, concavity, convexity and displacement, from photographic images – and being based around OpenCL, it works with any graphics card.
According to the developer: “Knald can generate [such] maps in around five seconds on a mid-level Nvidia [GeForce GTX] 560 Ti. When loading a height map directly, all other maps are generated instantly.”
