MotionBuilder is a professional 3D character animation software produced by Autodesk. It is used for virtual production, motion capture, and traditional keyframe animation. It was originally named Filmbox when it was first created by Canadian company Kaydara, later acquired by Alias and renamed to MotionBuilder. Alias in turn was acquired by Autodesk.
- Realtime display and animation tools
- Facial and skeletal animation

- A SDK that exposes functionality through Python and C++ via Qt and PySide.
- Ragdoll physics
- Inverse kinematics
- 3D non-linear editing system (the Story tool)
- Professional video broadcast output and input (input video may be mapped to any 3D object in the scene as the texture)
- Direct connection to other Autodesk digital content creation tools
- The FBX (.fbx) file format for 3D software interoperability has grown out of this package
