Hi there - I researched a bit on Daz and realized that one can build animation sequences and export them as FBX which can be dropped into 3dsMax.
I am interested to see what models you have that are of the fantasy range i.e. medieval characters, fighters, mage, creatures etc. and whether these have the following animations:
idle, walk, run, attack, die
For a US$20 budget, are you able to find 5 character/creatures animated (idle, walk, run, attack, die) rendered from the top-down view and deliver them in FBX format?
You can use the pre-set animations and use the Daz library range - no modelling from scratch required.
