Softimage VP/GM Marc Stevens says the company is committed to continuing to develop, sell and support CAT products, ensuring that customers and resellers see no interruption in access to CAT products or services during this transition.  Softimage will continue to provide the sales, support and services that have been available from CAT in the past and CAT customers will continue to have the same sales and support contacts as they have had in the past. 

“We are very excited about the synergy between our respective technologies and what CAT and Softimage can bring to the market moving forward,” says Stevens. “This combination will allow us to work together to deliver an even broader range of character animation solutions that allow animators to reach their artistic goals with greater ease across multiple 3D platforms.”

CAT chief technology officer Philip Taylor has joined the Softimage team in Montreal, bringing with him expertise and knowledge that will contribute to the company’s future vision for character animation.
