+ Craft Animations has completed a major overhaul of the way Craft Director Tools function within the host environments of 3ds Max and – especially – Maya. After a long dialogue with several customers we began to implement a long list of change-requests and suggestions. This has resulted in a new and more robust Craft Maya Adaptor and Craft 3ds Max Adaptor. If you have Craft Director Tools installed on your computer you should automatically be prompted to update your software when you start up 3ds Max or Maya. Otherwise download our new software bundle – including the ServicePack - here. The ServicePack is guaranteed to bring the user experience leaps and bounds beyond the excellent standard you already have come to expect. This is worth looking into, even if you are not currently using Craft Director Tools. Craft Director Tools now support merging and X-ref. That means you can create and rig your Craft Director Tools plug-ins in one scene and then use them in another. If you currently have saved files with Craft Director Tools and you plan to begin using the merge/x-ref function right away remember to save your files using the new version of Craft Director Tools before you merge them - otherwise the dummies that you merge will be disconnected from the Craft controllers. There were a number of known stability issues in Maya especially. The ServicePack adds an extra level of performance and stability that mean the user experience in Maya is now very different.
