SIGGRAPH - ANIMATION FOR THE PEOPLE

Anaheim, California AUG 2013 -- Reallusion joined the 40th annual Siggraph expo showcasing the release of iClone 5.5, the latest edition of iClone Animation Pipeline, which now includes the first universal facial control system for any 3D character. Once requiring a team of animators and weeks of work to bring characters to life, animation pros are now able to accomplish their goals in a matter of days and with minimal production staff by using the iClone Animation Pipeline.

The universal character rig supports importing any custom 3D character to animate with a vast toolset of dynamic facial puppeteering, lip-sync and HumanIK-enhanced motion creation.  Create animation with ease for your custom character FBX files export to Unity, UDK, 3DS Max, Maya and more. 

Reallusion's crew provided on-site demonstration of the photo-3d face fitting that turns any photo into a 3D avatar, as well as details on the full pipeline possibilities with an iClone to Maya demonstration.

Siggraph Press: ElectricTV & ShareCG covered the show with video demos & clips from the expo floor.

The 2013 GDC (Game Developers Conference) brought indie and indusrty developers from around the world to see the latest in game development technology and watch the best Indie games battle it out for in the Independent Games Festival.  Reallusion was among 300 exhibitors at this year's event that drew over 25,000 attendees.  The surge in mobile and handheld device games is apparent with over 70% of conference goers stating that they are primarily developing for handheld devices gaming.  

The show floor had plenty to see from Autodesk, Unity, Intel, Nvidia, Xbox and more. Inside Reallusion's booth (#2031), visitors saw the iClone Animation Pipeline working to create custom character facial animation and body motions on-the-fly for use in Unity.   iClone 5.5 demonstrated to developers how to import an FBX, characterize it for iClone and then use iClone's tools for auto lip-synch,  facial animation and body motion, then export to Unity, Max & Maya.  Visitors also learned about importing DAZ Genesis characters and the simplified retageting via HumanIK to make virtually any FBX ready to animate in minutes with iClone.


Reallusion gave a sneak peek of CrazyTalk7 for iOS to GDC attendees.  All the fun and animation from CrazyTalk on your iPad or iPhone including voice recording, lip-synch, interactive animmation and sharing to Youtube & Facebook.

CrazyTalk7 wins Macworld 2013 Best of Show [Video]

San Francisco, CA FEB 7th - MACWORLD/iWorld,
Reallusion presented CrazyTalk7 in our innagural Macworld. Our booth was inside the Appalooza section exhibiting the newest iOS and OSX apps.   The expo featured FaceTime powered robots, the latest from Blue microphones and in the middle of it all was CrazyTalk7 and a talking cat. The cat was quite popular and  the most asked question from show attendees was, "Can I do that with my pet?"... Yes and now you can do it on the Mac.  We demoed CrazyTalk to a big part of the 25,000 expoers and joined with the other 300 exhibitors to show the latest innovation in software and accessories for the Ultimate iFan.  The week was made even better with the news that CrazyTalk7 received "Best of Show".
