Quidam is a tool specially targeting professional animators who don't like to make their models and would rather spend time animating. Quidam saves textures, lightmaps, completely posed and rigged models.

Jennifer Hachigian-Advanced Resistance for in Dynamics

Advanced Resistance means the polygon offers a different level of
resistance on its broadside than it does on its edge. A real-world
example would be dropping a piece of paper. If you hold it parallel to
the ground, so that the paper's broadside faces the ground, it will
offer more air resistance when dropped than it would if it was held
with its edge facing the ground.

Advanced Resistance can make a difference for confetti, leaves falling
in the breeze, cherry blossoms falling in the wind, and (sometimes)
more realistic cloth simulations.

Directions are on our site under the location menu. $5 at the door....Coffee and donuts provided. Allow sometime to get to the site as the Los Angeles Marathon is taking place on Sunday.

It'll be an exciting meeting and we hope to see you there
