Alias has announced its intention to purchase Kaydara, a developer of real-time 3D character animation and motion editing solutions.

Kaydara will operate under the Alias name when the purchase is completed, which is expected in 60 days. Kaydara products -- most notably MotionBuilder and Kaydara FBX -- will continue to support all current industry platforms and will be sold as standalone products under the Alias brand name.
