we just released a new plug-in for CINEMA 4D 12+ (Windows / Mac OS 10.8+), the Keyframe Optimizer.
If you have to deal with baked animations or e. g. Motion Capture data on a regular basis, you already know about the problems this brings along. Memory requirements go up, Timeline responsiveness goes down. Last but not least, animations with many keys are really hard to edit.
The solution is easy, though complicated to achieve: Reducing the amount of keyframes without loosing too many precious animation details.
The Keyframe Optimizer helps to reduce the amount of keys for any project or individual animation track, while following the original C4D interpolation curves as close as possible.
A 10 day trial is available for you to check out. Our YouTube channel also hosts a demonstration video. More infos and links at our webshop: http://www.rodenburg-verlag.de
