Confused about what and who Evolver is? I’ve written about them before.


Recently, the Evolver technology, which offers you products like: Avatara, Evolver, and Evolver Pro, has become a part of Autodesk.

Autodesk serves entertainment and design professionals that are looking for ways to make their 3D projects more realistic by adding a human element in the form of crowd simulation. Evolver technology complements the research we are currently doing in the areas of realistic real-time human crowd simulation.

Current Avatara, Evolver, and Evolver Pro customers will be able to access many of the same services previously available. Additionally, we anticipate that many Pro export services will, for a limited time, be made available for free. Longer-term plans will be communicated as soon as they are available.
