AI-Driven Cloud Service Creates 3D Motions for Virtual Beings in Minutes

SAN MATEO, CA, October 29, 2020: As part of its drive to revolutionize Motion Intelligence, DeepMotion has officially launched their 3D animation cloud service Animate 3D today, available HERE. With an AI-powered platform, Animate 3D turns 2D video files into 3D animations for use in games, film, and other creative applications.

Eliminating the need for traditional mocap hardware and suits, Animate 3D provides easy, accessible full-body motion capture, turning around animations in minutes. Animate 3D dramatically lowers the barrier to creating 3D animations for users ranging from amateurs to longtime industry professionals.

Check out the trailer for the newly launched V2.0 release for Animate 3D:

Animate 3D empowers creative ideas further with the ability to capture human motion by simply uploading videos found online, or captured with a personal device. With Animate 3D’s perceptive AI technology, you can generate and download your own 3D animations with custom avatars in minutes, making the process of capturing motion fun and simple.

With custom character uploads and an easy-to-use interface, anyone can easily create a unique virtual avatar for social media challenges, custom gifs, or simply to have a sense of privacy online. Creators can now equip themselves with tools usually afforded to professionals. Animate 3D takes the pain out of animating and enables any level of user to take a video and combine it with a favorite character and quickly generate unique 3D animations in sharable formats. This easily accessible platform enables independent creators to expand their creative possibilities.

Says Kevin He, Founder & CEO of DeepMotion: "Creating innovative animations with our body expressions without heavy motion capture gear, and being given the ability to extract classic human motion from the vast amount of videos on the internet, is a dream to many of us working in the entertainment and social media industries. At DeepMotion, we have been hard at work over the past five years to employ biomechanical simulation and deep learning technologies to turn that dream into reality. Now, with great excitement, I’d like to announce that our first AI-powered cloud-based service, Animate 3D, has officially launched! We look forward to empowering all the content creators in the world to create dynamic 3D animations with their favorite characters using nothing more than a video clip and a web browser."

Animate 3D is easily accessible for all levels of users. The service runs through any browser and does not require any software or hardware for you to begin creating animations. The introductory free account allows you to explore what the service is capable of. From there, a variety of paid tiers are available to address the needs of any level of creator, including API integrations.


Since its inception 2014, DeepMotion has been on a mission to bring digital characters to life through smarter motion technology. Using physics simulation, computer vision, and machine learning, DeepMotion’s solutions bridge physical and digital motion for virtual characters and machines.

DeepMotion’s intuitive suite of tools provide an end-to-end solution for efficient motion capture, motion learning, and real-time character interaction leading to break-through applications in Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and digital motion.
