Post Magazine Review: Reallusion’s Motion LIVE mocap platform

POST

Independent film director/animator Solomon W. Jagwe reviewed Reallusion’s new Motion LIVE mocap platform, and how it helped him achieve multiple animation goals within a short time, all within the confines of a limited budget!

Solomon used a Perception Neuron 2.0 motion capture suit together with an iPhone X as motion capture hardware by simultaneously connecting them with iClone. This gave Solomon the freedom to act out the different parts of his characters, while creating banks of animations that he can could later reuse for his new, animated children’s TV series – The Adventures of Nkoza & Nankya

Character Creator 3 releases with ZBrush, Daz3D, Iray and InstaLOD workflow

A Universal 3D Character Creation Platform for Animation, Game, AR and VR

 

Reallusion delivers Character Creator 3 Pipeline (CC3) and Iray Render Plug-in. A breakthrough in universal character creation, connecting industry-standard character solutions into one system for 3D character generation, rendering and gamification.

CC3 is a dynamic character creation system with a process to choose a highly-morphable base, morph and shape face and body, mix morphs, choose clothing, accessories and rapidly design stylized or realistic 3D characters, already set up for face and body animation.

The latest features added to Character Creator 3 include a quad-based mesh, ZBrush compatibility with GoZ, subdivision and gamification with InstaLOD, along with Iray rendering. CC3 also connects industry-leading sources for 3D character content from external 3D libraries thanks to the Transformer feature, a tool to automatically convert Daz Genesis, Poser M4 / V4, and HiveWire assets from vast content libraries, into animation-ready characters for use in iClone or other 3D applications.

Cartoons are the best way for me to share design techniques with people that can be also used in both artistic and more ‘practical’ situations. And of course, they are a lot of fun to make! I am a multimedia designer, I deal on a daily basis with different tasks involving creative communication, from illustration, to sound design and editing. I am currently using Reallusion’s CrazyTalk Animator for the majority of my project and decided to join their team of Certified Content Developers.

Reallusion is nearing the release of Character Creator 3 and new details of character import and pipeline features have some hefty possibilities for content creators of Daz 3D characters. The new Character Creator 3 Transformer tool converts Daz Genesis and M4, V4 FBX content to the Character Creator 3 character system, ready for face and full-body animation, and able to be optimized for games with multiple LOD.

Reallusion has provided a sneak peek of the new content conversion tools that transform Daz 3D and HiveWire characters into Character Creator and iClone. We’ve asked Reallusion some questions to know more about this new process for the content communities.
