Crystal Bretz, modeler and texturer at Method Studios, tries Reallusion’s Character Creator 3 for the first time. In her walkthrough, Crystal models Dmitry Skvortsov’s concept of CD Projekt Red’s Leo Bonhart character from The Witcher series. Starting from a Character Creator base mesh, she refines the body, face and clothing details using the GoZ bridge from Character Creator 3 ZBrush.
Crystal also uses Substance Painter during the texturing process before posing the character using Character Creator 3’s Facial Expression Presets.

Reviewer Mike Sherwood is a specialist in human modelling and animation, 3D artist. Here are some of his comments on Reallusion’s iPhone LIVE FACE Mocap solution –
“I’ve used many different facial mocap systems over the years, marker-based and markerless, and while none are perfect, the iPhone X/LIVE FACE approach is remarkably stable and easy to use straight away.”
“The tracking is quite robust and even covers cheek expansion – something I haven’t seen with other markerless systems.”
