Description

Red9 is an Animation Consultancy business, offering Maya pipeline development and support, rigging services and facial solutions to the entertainment industry. We're working with some of the biggest names in the business but also helping support those smaller games companies who lack either the internal capability, or capacity to manage a modern pipeline internally. 

www.red9consultancy.com Please check the website for updates on both the StudioPack and ProPack toolsets, we also now offer full rigging services using our proprietary Red9 Puppet rigging system.

 Red9 StudioTools themselves were born out of frustration, based on years of production experience building pipelines and toolsets around a modern animation workflow. It's aimed at those studios & individuals looking for a professional and integrated solution for dealing with complex rigs/setups but without the benefit of an R&D department to write bespoke solutions.

  All key animation features run a filter under the hood that allows you to tailor the systems to your rig/ hierarchy, once configured the toolset hooks seamlessly to your solution, allowing animation mirroring, pose saving, rig and transform snapping, time management, key copying, attr copying and a host of other core features, all filtered internally to deal with your setup.

 For the TD's there's a complete metaData api included with tons of reference video's showing you how to use it and subclass it for your own purposes, this is aimed at structuring rig networks under the hood. There's also powerful Python filtering and node matching classes exposed. Additional tools include AttrMaps for dealing with hierarchy locking and storing, as well as a SceneReview tool which is ideal for tracking comments on a shot by shot basis across a studio.

 

Why OpenSource, well I want to give something back to the industry as I really feel for those studios without the benefit of a large R&D department to craft pipelines around them. The Studio Pack is designed to speed up a modern animation pipeline.

About This Version

Version 3.0, 10/11/2019
This new update is a huge release for any TD's out there as the codebase has matured hugely over the last few years, more features, more support and a lot of new smaller updates for the toolsets themselves. Whilst on the surface it may seem like the StudioPack hasn't had much development recently nothing could be further from the truth. This API is the absolute backbone to our commercially available Red9 ProPack pipeline and you'll see a lot of comments, API docs and hooks to support the core of the Pro toolset. This means that StudioPack is even more crucial to Red9 Consultancy and even better for you, it means that the tools are even more production battered than ever before! Please read the CodeTracker.xml for API details. Lots of changes and stability fixes plus full support for 4k.

  • Fantastic!
    Rob Howes | September 23, 2019

    A great toolset for animators and riggers to unify rigs under one roof.

    From a TD pov; this is an incredible foundation to build a pipeline on. So many of the core ideas and basic building blocks are already there ready to be exploited. Meta itself is a really neaty way to handle maya nodes and makes working with rigs & animation scenes very simple & intuitive


  • Useful tools!

    Use them all the time.  Must have for 3D generalist.  Love them.  Red9 is the best.


  • A must for animators
    Craig Peck | May 04, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great tool for animators and motion editors. Been using it for just over a year now and can't see myself using Maya without it. The snapping tools I use on a daily basis, no need for constraints when a character has multiple contacts, just use the track or stabilize button. Such a time saver. Highly recommended!


  • Must Have!

    I've always regarded Red9 Studio Tools as one of the best free tools out there, very comprehensive and very stable plus there's a ton of tuts on Mark Jackson's site to get you going, also a big thank you for MAC OS X support!


  • Amazing
    Justin K | July 13, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Absolutely amazing set of tools for animators and riggers. Highly recommend it. The animation binder tool is a huge lifesaver! The pose library and animation tools are so useful. And all of it for free!!!!!


  • Greatness!
    Andres Quiroz | July 08, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great set of tools, with everything I might need, and probably more (still need to dig deeper)! Very professional, stable, and powerful.
