DIGITAL DOMAIN USING ENDORPHIN FOR ANIMATION

Endorphin is one of the only character animation software applications to use Dynamic Motion Synthesis (DMS), a technology based on artificial intelligence controllers that imitate the human nervous system. Unlike conventional animation techniques, such as key-framing or motion capture, Endorphin's DMS technology uses the CPU to simulate the brain and body of 3D characters, which allows animators to synthesize human movements in realtime. This approach produces directed and fully-interactive 3D characters that animate themselves with real-life movements that are unique every time.

Digital Domain has won Academy Awards for its visual effects work. The studio is best known for its work on Titanic; I, Robot and The Day After Tomorrow.
