The 42nd annual SIGGRAPH conference and expo was held in Los Angeles, California August 11-13 at the Los Angeles Convention Center where we were on-site at the expo to demo the latest from iClone.
Reallusion demos at Siggraph were led by the iClone Live Motion Capture system featuring the Noitom Perception Neuron mocap suit. iClone 6 was also featured on a demo stage in the Noitom booth.
The 32 neuron mocap suit powered an iClone character in real-time as show attendees watched the process live. The suit is able to be used via wifi so there is little limitation on where you can move while capturing your motion. The iClone Live Motion Capture system demo showed how any 3D character can be imported and then be the model used to live capture the motion.
Reallusion and Noitom held a contest during Siggraph to provide anyone that came by the booth and scanned their badge or left a business card with a chance to win the 32 Neuron, Perception Neuron mocap suit. After the close of the show we compiled the names and the lucky draw winner is:
John Blalock, Art Institute Orange County. Congratulations!
Reallusion joined over 120,000 Comic-Con attendees at the San Diego Convention Center from July 9-12th 2015. Attendees experienced demos of CrazyTalk 7, and CrazyTalk Animator 2 PRO for a look at the complete line-up of Reallusion’s 2D animation tools. Animators, illustrators, hobbyists and families saw how simple it is to create a talking character from a single image. Live demos included creating talking stuffed animals, movie characters and even animating Chewbacca.
Here’s our highlights video for San Diego Comic-Con 2015
At the show we had all kinds of visitors who previously heard about CrazyTalk, and who were eager to get their hands on their very own copy. Some lucky users even got an exclusive Reallusion USB drive.

T.V. Producer, James Ganiere and his Jedi Family
We also had the pleasure of discovering Anomaly Productions, a cutting-edge media company that combines stunning artwork and rich stories to build deeply immersive worlds than can be experienced across multiple platforms and in a multitude of ways.
At San Diego Comic-Con we found out that Anomaly’s Brian Haberlin was actually using CrazyTalk 7 to create beautifully rich, facial lip-syncing animation for their motion comics. In the show we had a chance to meet up with Director Francis Takenaga for a quick introduction into the world of Anomaly. Stay-tuned for a complete feature story on Anomaly Productions using CrazyTalk.
Reallusion will be at SIGGRAPH 2015 in Los Angeles, from August 11-13th.
So come by our booth #236 and say hello!

Whether in school or work, we’ve all sat through countless presentations – some quite engaging, but others – pretty painful. Chances are, some of those were painful because of how the data was presented – in massive tables and hard-to-read graphs that lacked a compelling story. Many presenters believe that “the numbers speak for themselves” and that the audience will automatically follow the speaker’s logic.
But this assumption is dangerous and does a huge disservice to data, massively hindering its potential.
July 14-16 Reallusion will exhibit and demo iClone 6 for game developers during the 2015 Develop conference in Brighton, UK. So come by our booth #B50 and say hello! We have so much news to share with you.
