Unicode Support allows you to use just about any character set you want (Chinese, Japanese, French, and more) inside Carrara. This allows the use of these special characters in the text modeler to create 3D text. Objects can also be named using these special characters. You can also select a font that supports your chosen language for the general interface.
BHVacker is a tool to adjust and fix BVH motion files, that can be used in Carrara, and itÂ´s free!
