United States – December 8, 2015 — AnimSchool is delighted to announce the public release of our new Malcolm 2.0 rig. Our crowdfunding backers and students have been using him for
months, and today we release Malcolm 2.0 to the
community. This is possible because of the generous support during our
crowdfunding campaign.

Malcolm 2.0 is a free 3D animation character rig for Autodesk Maya available from AnimSchool. Malcolm 2.0 was re-rigged to accommodate wardrobe changes. We’ve
added tons of wardrobe and hairstyle options to him, giving him all
new geometry to support all kinds of configurations, including bare feet.

has been an industry icon for years — possibly animators’ most popular
free 3D character in the world. The face is very advanced, very
malleable — yet he plays nearly in real-time. He’s been used for school
assignments, to win awards, short films, and even commercial projects.

We’re so happy to see Malcolm used by so many around the world.
