The revolutionary new iClone QT User Interface is now able to adapt to your working behavior and visual preference. You now have the freedom to customize your iClone UI like never before!

The new UI can be customized to help keep things organized in levels according to your own personal preferences in order to quickly find the categories and specific content you’re looking for.


The one thing about previous versions of iClone was that in order to assemble certain characters or themed scenes, you would have to go into tons of different folders to pick and choose specific content that was all from the same pack.

The pack view will take a huge weight off your shoulders and allow you to streamline scene creation workflows with props, characters, and accessories that are included in the same content packs, regardless of content type.

Speaking of bases and related materials, you can now right-click on any item in the Content Manager, and immediately find all of it’s related content that is in your library, making the customization process even faster.

The new Content Manager will also provide you easy and quick access to the newest and hottest content in the Marketplace and Content Store, so you can keep updated on the best new content, and access it more conveniently than ever!   


The previous workflow for applying materials to props involved right-click and drag into the scene view. Now, you can apply different texture maps directly to the thumbnails, allowing you to skip a couple of steps.

We’ve also included a couple of handy timeline enhancements as well. By holding ALT and left-clicking on the timeline, you can now navigate both up and across your timeline instead of trying to click on small slider bars. Also, if you can’t see the part of your timeline you’d like, you can hold CTRL and scroll your mouse wheel to zoom in and out.

And now for the big reveal… the new GUI design! Here are a few examples of some ideas we’ve been playing around with. Which one do you like? Leave your comments in the comment section below!
