Reallusion level-up game development with the launch of iClone Game Character Design Platform, the first Lip-Sync Ready 3D Character solution in the market. This platform takes the 3D character creation process into another generation where the long and arduous 3D character design is no longer necessary.

Designing a high quality, playable character is a long and difficult process which involves a massive amount of effort from multiple professionals who have spent weeks toiling away in front of 3ds Max or Maya. Furthermore, with the market trending towards a more intricate story-driven game design, developers are investing a greater amount of time on optimizing details that deepen immersions such as facial expressions, audio lip-syncing for cut-scenes, NPC interactions and other game-design logic.

This is where iClone Character Creator Platform comes in. This latest Reallusion offering provides developers with access to 3D characters with highly morphable topology, clothing dress-up system that conforms to all body shapes, and facial and body rig that are ready for animation. Developers no longer need to design 3D characters from scratch and worry about any technical details, but can instead concentrate their focus on refining the character’s contour and clothing to generate truly unique characters with shared facial control and motions.

iClone Game Character Design Platform is Created  for Game Developers

“This is a game changer for developers everywhere using Unity3D, Unreal Engine and Stingray for their game design,” said John Martin, VP Product, Reallusion.

“ We have worked closely with the game community to create this product platform. Our goal throughout has been to empower developers with a powerful quick-start solution. We understand that with aggressive deadlines to meet, speed and customizability are crucial. That is why all characters created from this platform are pre-rigged and comes with hundreds of motions ready for use. Best of all, these characters are capable of vivid facial expressions and can perform natural lip-sync automatically without painstakingly keying each frame. There is no other solution in the market that can do this.”

“We created and animated every character in our game with iClone,” said Guilherme Ressel, RGBird Games,developer of Mute, the game. “iClone generated 3D characters we customized to the western-themed style andthen animated and imported everything to Unity. Between its ease-of-use and its compatibility with Unity3D,  iClone has become a permanent part of our toolbox.”
