    As a long term development we aim to push forward a cutting edge animation system, based in Fabric Engine, in order to push a real game changer for our current feature animation projects. https://www.dneg.com/feature-animation/. In concrete we are developing (mainly based in fabric):
    - a complete procedural rigging framework
    - basic and some advanced deformers, using recent research publications
    - facial system, using a hybrid PSD system
    That's only the first step in the journey. We have got very good results and looks really promising
