Design & Deploy Realtime RTX, Game-ready 3D Characters
Reallusion debuts new 3D character and animation pipeline at GDC 2019 for games, cinematics and realtime experiences. Game visuals featuring RTX graphics and next-gen shaders now enable developers to make the most stunningly visual games ever. Reallusion’s Character Creator and iClone match the visual leap with a new real-time 3D game character solution for Unity, Unreal and the world of games, AR and VR. Design and deploy AAA-quality characters on an indie budget including tools for character creation, animation, motion capture for face and body, or a massive library of motions and moves to send to game engines. Optimize game characters with polygon reduction, LOD, UV and material merging for efficient game design. Import ready-to-play characters into game engines with Reallusion’s automated support for shader assignment, player animations and facial performances.

Last month VIZARTS Lab 1 was held at Aalborg University, in Copenhagen where students, directors, cinematographers, scriptwriters, producers, animators, programmers, designers and researchers got together for three days to explore real-time motion capturing technologies to create innovative cases for engaging storytelling.
At the event Tommy Thore Ipsen, from World For Story Studios – showcased how his team is using iClone’s Motion LIVE mocap platform and realtime animation tools, with Rokoko motion capture suits, to create augmented reality apps that engage audiences.
VIZARTS – Lab 1: Engaging Storytelling with Motion Capture
Creative Media Industries Institute (CMII) hosts the inaugural Motion Capture Performance Workshop at Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. The actors participating gained invaluable knowledge and cutting-edge acting skills necessary to perform in a motion capture environment. The two-day workshop – the only one of its kind originating in the United States – was produced by the College of the Arts Office of Educational Outreach and hosted by the School of Film, Media & Theatre and the CMII. Leaders of the workshop included Mary Emily O’Bradovich, professional actor with People Store and academic professional at Georgia State focusing on movement and acting,James C. Martin, professor of practice at Georgia State teaching virtual reality (VR) production and VR/AR Asset Creation, and Michelle Ladd, motion capture director, fight director and stunt performer with RE:Action Stunts and Broad-Motion Entertainment.
SIGGRAPH 2018 was held in Vancouver on August 12-16, and Reallusion is pleased to be featured by Cartoon Brew as one of the 12 Cool New Pieces of Animation Tech at SIGGRAPH.
Alongside with NVidia’s single GPU for real-time ray tracing, StarVR’s new headset, A.I. in Allegorithmic’s Substance, Sketchfab’s new way of looking at huge 3d datasets and other industry new tech — iPhone X Face Mocap was selected as one of the coolest new techs in the show.
Face tracking solutions using smartphones were part of several technologies shown at SIGGRAPH, but one that seemed particularly accessible was Reallusion’s LIVE FACE for iPhone X. When Cartoon Brew tried out LIVE FACE, a 3D character head moved and performed lip sync simply from our facial movements live in front of an iPhone.
