The digital 3D software creation suite of the 21st century.


Developer reference and home of the Kraken project – redefining animation composition, collaborative workflows, simulation engines, skeletal rigging systems, and look development from storyboard to final render. Built on the underlying software architecture provided by Pixar, and extended to meet the ever-growing needs of both artists and production pipelines. It is with this strong core foundation, that we may begin to solve the most challenging issues the world of modern graphics demands, and push the framework for composition & design into the future.


This is the developer reference for the C++ and Python API of Kraken. It is subject to change frequently, as different iterations are necessary to find the correct approach.
