kci:dnd A:M projects
My name is Marcel Bricman (nick ZPiDER, see a photo, firstname.lastname@example.org). I'm working as a designer and programmer for kci - design & development.
As part of this work i have to do 3d visualizations and other 3d elements for websites and print media.
We chose Animation:Master as our 3D package for its extensive featureset. The problem with this choice was the lacking third party support for A:M, so we started to develop plugins for it to fulfill our needs. All finished plugins can be found and downloaded from this site, some free, some with minimal charge. You can also find some samples of our projects involving A:M as well as some Tutorials here.
Free "Microtextures" i have created:
