Getting Creature

Creature comes in various flavours: Trial, Basic, Pro and Enterprise ( currently for Windows ). The Trial version is completely Free and has major features like data saving removed. The Basic version is suitable for people wanting to do Character Bone animation and skinning without some of the more advanced features. You can always purchase the Basic version and upgrade to the Pro version at anytime. The Pro version is recommended for users who require features like Mesh Deformation Motors, Mesh Resolution Optimization, Path animation, Motion Capture and more.

Each purchase of the Creature license is a Per Seat license. All upcoming updates to the Creature animation system are free of charge.
