August 2012 - Mixamo is an innovative, easy to use 3D character system that allows you to easily engage with the highest-quality character motion possible in a matter of seconds using director level controls.

With Mixamo, The Houdini community has access to a wide range of motions that they can very quickly apply to their own characters in
an easy to import and highly customizable manner.


Highlights include:

  • Import your own charcters from Houdini using the FBX or OBJ file formats.
  • Import your characters that have been pre-rigged with Houdini (skeleton and all) or simply allow Mixamo to automatically map a rig to your t-posed character. Automatic rigs can also be fine-tuned if needed.
  • Apply a wide range of pre-made motions to your character. Motions can also be blended from one to another.
  • Edit motions in real time
  • There's a wide range of free motions available to use. All purchased content is Royalty Free.

The video below feature a few Cloth and Fluid simulations which use motion from Mixamo. These were recently demonstrated at the Side Effects Software booth at SIGGRAPH 2012 in Los Angeles.
