This is a dedicated workspace hosting the total reworking of the animation feature with improved simulation and performance optimization. You can create, edit, and add animations. You can also save multiple animation recordings in the same BW file and update the current loaded animation with newly recorded frames. In addition, you can use the 3D styling tools in the workspace for a more efficient workflow.
For more information, refer to Working with Animation.
This is a digital tool that replicates the real-life walking of pattern pieces that is the pattern maker's traditional way of making sure the pieces are designed properly from a technical point of view. You can inspect and adjust pattern pieces in the 2D window, similar to the physical process done manually with paper.
For more information, refer to Walk Tool Overview.
