Mixamo was founded in July 2008 by Stefano Corazza and Nazim Kareemi as a spin-off of Stanford University's Biomotion Lab.[2][3] Its first cloud-based service started out in 2009 offering animations and automatic character rigging.[4] In 2010, Mixamo worked with Evolver to provide characters to customers.[4] Autodesk then acquired Evolver and made it proprietary, but Mixamo had already begun work on its own character creation service.[4]
