Animation Plug-in For Maya


Anzovin Onion Skinneris a plug-in for Maya that displays previous and subsequent frames of your animation "ghosted" over the current frame.

In traditional animation, you can draw a pose on tracing paper laid over other poses, which creates a visual preview of the motion. While this kind of functionality has been carried over into 2D animation tools like Flash, it's been notably absent from most CG animation workflows. CG animation makes you create poses "blind," without any way to see the rest of your animation.

Anzovin Onion Skinner brings the power of true onion skinning to Maya -- perfect for any animator using a pose-to-pose workflow.

Anzovin Onion Skinner works with Maya 2011-2017 on Windows, Mac, and Linux machines. Does not support Viewport 2.0 or Maya 2018 and later.



Anzovin Onion Skinner's features allow for a realtime, customizable experience. Watch this demo to see AOS in action!

Real-time Updating

As you work, Anzovin Onion Skinner updates future and past frames in real-time allowing you to concentrate on your animation without worrying about refreshing!

Adjustable Keyframe Attributes

AOS's customization options allow you to adjust the color, opacity, image quality, and frame range settings to fit the aesthetics of your workflow.

Multiple Skin Sets

When more then one object or character are moving through your scene, onion skinning might start to give you more keyframe reference then you need.  That's why Anzovin Onion Skinner lets you create multiple skin sets, allowing you to toggle the animation info on and off as needed.
