Our audience and users are invited to send us animations of KineFox which they have done themselves. We will publish them on our Youtube channel and in the Made with EDAP Tools section on this site to give the authors additional exposure.

Below is a video that shows what's in the KineFox box.

Where is EDAP Tools v.4.0? can't find it in the download section,

Hello Edson! Good to hear from you, mate!

V.4 is coming soon. We haven't locked a release date yet, but is very close. Keep an eye on our Facebook or the news section here. There will be a big announcement 🙂

Best regards!

Hi Before I go and use this wonderful tool in production. Will it be possible to upgrade to V4 mid production?
I must say stubling across these flash powertools is awesome!! Tutorials are nice and clear too!

Hi Jeroon,

Glad you found us and welcome!

Short answer is 'yes'.

Switching from 3.5 to 4.0 will be literally a matter of a few clicks. All rigs will work while you will have richer SMR functionality with additional features for Smart Transform, Smart Magnet Joint as well as the new KineFlex.

We design and develop the tools with advanced users and industry professionals in mind. We understand how important version compatibility is and always take conservative approaches to UX.

This project has been in development since 2009-2010 with our first official release in 2011. In the last few years it has really matured and developed way beyond our humble initial goals. Our plans for v.5 are very exciting too.

Look around and if you like the experience, help spread the word.
Also never hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or if you come across any difficulties.
We try to always support our releases with good documentation and with v.4 there will be videos accompanying each of the tools.
