Creators of the endorphin and euphoria engines, NaturalMotion, has announced that the new morpheme next-generation animation tool-set is now available for high-end platforms. These flexible authoring tools will now enable developers to fire all those hard-to-work-with motion-capture actors.

“We developed morpheme to improve the workflow for next-generation game developers,” said Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion. “By backing up a next-gen animation engine with a strong 3D authoring application, animators and programmers are now able to work hand-in-hand, in real time, to create fluid in-game animation that truly reflects the quality of the source data.”

Unlike the euphoria and endorphin SDKs, the morpheme doesn’t utilize DMS technology. Instead, NaturalMotion’s latest technology works hand-in-hand with the euphoria and endorphin tool-kits. Just think of the amazing possibilities developers can turn out with M&Ms. You know, morpheme and morphine? :P
