aniMate2 is(been out for a while) the replacement to aniMate Plus. I am pretty sure that aniMate2 Content Bundle is equivalent to your aniMate Plus Bundle Upgrade. Even though I would love your money, don’t double buy.
Thanks for the warning.
Am I right in thinking that Key Mate can read aniblocks from the aniMate and aniMate 2 products and gives you more editing control?
I’ve looked in my content library and I’ve got a walk construction kit but it’s in the aniMate directory, not aniMatePlus. Will this work with Key Mate?
If you want to use aniBlocks, aniMate2 is what you want. All versions of Studio for years have shipped with a Lite version than enables everyone to use aniBlocks. You have to pay for aniMate2 to edit the keys inside the aniBlocks, although you can transfer(bake) the aniMate2 keys from aniMate to DAZ Studio keys and then edit them there.
keyMate works on DAZ Studio keys. Although you can create aniBlocks from scratch inside aniMate2, creating animation from scratch tends to be easier for many people using the traditional keyframing solution.
That being said, some are finding they like to bake an aniBlock to the Studio Keys and then add some custom animation to sections of the animation using keyMate.
