Thanks for this great release RL team !
You have just revolutionized the way 2D animations are made and you are probably showing what will be the future of 2D animation for small and middle range studios.

CA4 become a major tool in animation world. Can you please tell us why there is such a price difference beetween the 2D facial Mocap version and the Live Face (iPhone) version ? By the way, is it possible to use the iClone Live face version (iPhone) with CA4 ?

Thanks,

Pierre

Hi Pierre

Thank you for the kind words.

The pricing of plug-ins depends on many factors including the technology being used and the features they allow.

I didn't see any 'SHOWCASE' being opened for CA4 here.
If users are to post their 'showcase' should they create a new post here?
