Steve Day, Head of Production
Why we use iClone:
Our company Vertical Learning Curve is the first company to create accredited 3D interactive graduate degrees. We will finish our first full MBA program in a few months. When we do, we will complete the monumental task of animating 2,400 minutes--the equivalent of 20 two-hour long feature films in two years. To make matters more difficult, this task must be completed by using only a team of five animators. Our task would be impossible to accomplish without iClone.
iClone speeds up our production pipeline like no other animation software. With our Phasespace motion capture system and iClone's help, our team of five animators can animate 100 minutes of animation per month at a professional level. Reallusion's animation studio provides us with fast easy-to-use tools such as avatar creation, 3D modeling, Lip-syncing, and character rigging all in one seamless package.
The iClone 4.0 upgrade will complete their toolkit by supplying the lighting and visual effects necessary to compete with industry-standard software makers, through the use of importing video files, HDR effects, Motion-pathing, and IBL effects. We are thrilled at this new release and we look forward to applying their new features in the rest of our degree courses.
