For the past 15 years, iClone has been widely used in the world for everything from television programs, 3D film-making, video game development, pre-viz production, special effects, and just about anything.
In 2015, we were happy to see iClone being used in movie trailers, and in independent short films as iClone is a great tool for animators to express their creativity with. The use in the Jimmy Kimmel Live! TV show, and Toei Animation Studios previz show exactly just how far iClone has come, and matured, into a professional animation tool.
Here are our picks for the Top 5 Best uses of iClone in 2015!
Top 1.《The Walk Home》by Steve Cutts
This short film created a great atmosphere about the dark side of a city. Through a boy’s troubled journey across a hostile urban area, he experiences violence, flight, fire, guns, bullets, and in the end… death.
When the boy eventually encounters his own death, he sees all the dead spirits that he faced. It’s like he went through the dark side of humanity, and then suddenly a transformation happened – the evil inside broke through, and the human inside awoke. We chose this film as the best use of iClone in 2015, not just because it’s really well-made, but because of its deep meaning.
Animator and illustrator Steve Cutts did an excellent job at setting the scene, character animation, story-telling and visual effects. He created this film in After Effects and Photoshop, with additional 3D elements created in Cinema 4D and iClone.
