I got into art as a child, but I was not very good at any art in general. Until one day, when I discovered computer graphics and 3D animation – that changed everything for me. I dabbled for some years and got better over time. Today, I love to create with any software I can get my hands on. I eventually discovered iClone and fell in love with it. Learn why…
This year, more than 27,000 fans, content creators, and industry executives flocked to the Anaheim Convention Center from June 26-28th for the 2017 VidCon show, as it gathers thousands of brilliant minds from video creators, and industry opinion-leaders for the latest YouTube trends. The show is the largest conference for and about online video, as it attracts people across generations to celebrate, discuss, and define the future of online visual entertainment.
In 2017 Reallusion joined VidCon for the very first time, where we introduced the CrazyTalk animation software family to bring new and powerful animation tools to YouTube stars everywhere!

If you have ever created a 3D animated film, or any film for that matter then you know how labor intensive it can be. The planning, the scripting, the editing, the everything! There is so much to take into consideration that we often ask ourselves —
- What is the fastest way to start?
- Can a single person do it all?
- What tools do I even use?
… just the thought alone is enough to put anyone off from such a production.
The Good News is — YES, there is a fast way. Yes, you can do it all on your own. And yes, there are tools for all of this.
If you are a Photoshop artist, a Dreamweaver designer, or an Adobe user with a Creative Cloud membership then we have some awesome news for you as now you can animate 3D characters with thousands of high-quality Mixamo animations for FREE!
…well sort of free because you still need a $9.99 membership. But it really is an all-you-can-eat at the Adobe animation buffet!
In the world of animation, there are dozens of sources to choose from when looking to acquire professional, high-poly 3D characters to render stills and animation.
One source is Daz 3D, a 3D content and software company that specializes in providing rigged 3D human models, associated accessory content, and software. Of course, the real power behind Daz 3D is their online 3D content marketplace that has over 16,000 items. These include their Daz Genesis characters, which are the first generation of Daz 3D’s technology for creating human 3D figures.
Jason is a 3D artist who produces digital content such as animated graphics for television and video projections for musical theater companies. He also produces workshops for kids specializing in shooting, editing, and greenscreen.
Software used: Reallusion iClone 6.5 for Windows, Cyberlink PowerDirector for Windows, Fulldive VR player for Android, GoPro VR player for Windows
After 100 years of cinema, we are transitioning from watching a film to being present inside one. Very exciting times indeed! This cognitive leap from 2D to 360VR is so drastic that we must now start calling these new films “experiences” and we must also consider the viewer’s role early in the production process.
Creating immersive 360-degree videos requires a different sense of timing and spatial positioning. This tutorial will focus only on the challenges of creating content for viewing with VR goggles, such as those based on the Google Cardboard standard. (Note: When this tutorial refers to the “viewer”, it means the person who is wearing the goggles and watching your content.)
Reallusion is back after attending this year’s Comic Con event at the Javits Center in New York city. The convention projected to have over 167,000 guests, making it the largest Comic Con event up to date!
New York Comic Con is the East Coast’s biggest and most exciting popular culture convention. The show hosted the latest and greatest in comics, graphic novels, anime, manga, video games, toys, movies, and television. Along with Panels and Autograph Sessions that gave Fans a chance to interact with their favorite Creators. The event’s screening rooms featured sneak peeks at films and television shows months before they hit big and small screens.
Drawing sketches and characters is something that we have all done at one point or another, from scribbling poses, to facial animations, to drawing full-fledged superhero silhouettes on our notepads. But how many of us have actually taken a still image artwork and brought it to life into a 3D character with full facial expressions, mouth movements, and body movements?
