What’s the best go-to tool for easy 3D character creation?
3D expert Rob Redman points out that character creation is often a whopping project as it involves modeling a character from scratch, fixing textures, skins, generating and adjusting map channels, not to mention the meticulous task of rigging full body characters which can all be daunting and exhausting.
But… Rob has found an alternative and option for creating the fastest 3D characters that require no modelling nor rigging. A tool that can be quickly learned by a beginner, while being powerful enough for any 3D expert. This option comes in the form of the iClone Character Creator tool. Which by the way, is 100% free.
iClone Character Creator just won the Highly Commended Award for software on 3D World Magazine’s 2016 February issue; receiving a score of 4 out of 5.
Reviewer Rob Redman is an industry veteran, who runs course covering VFX, animation and filmmaking.
Here are some of his review quotes-
“The integration with iClone is a big selling point, as the integration is where the power lies. “
“Reallusion have spend real development time ensuring there are many choices to help personlise figure-from refined makeup and skin tone controls, to elements of wear and tear, and even rips to add to clothing.”
“The resulting figures are not at the pinnacle of quality; they’re not meant to be. They are rigged, and are easy to work with; perfect for pre-viz and visualisation work.”
Character Creation is a specialized tool that takes a massive amount of effort, and converts into a single, easy to use process which any character design professional will absolutely love.

Greetings to you all,
Reallusion are one of the winner of CGW’s Silver Edge Award!
iClone Character Creator and Live Motion Capture System has won the award for Best-in-Show at SIGGRAPH 2015. Alongside Autodesk, Nvidia, and other leading companies.
Here is the announcement-
Whether in school or work, we’ve all sat through countless presentations – some quite engaging, but others – pretty painful. Chances are, some of those were painful because of how the data was presented – in massive tables and hard-to-read graphs that lacked a compelling story. Many presenters believe that “the numbers speak for themselves” and that the audience will automatically follow the speaker’s logic.
But this assumption is dangerous and does a huge disservice to data, massively hindering its potential.
A real film that combines the use of real video footage with iClone animations will be theatrically released in LA this Friday, 30 January.
In today’s world, giving presentation is pretty much a necessity whether you are a startup or an established business. But we all know no one wants to sit through many slides of boring texts – that is the quickest way to fall asleep. They want interesting visuals, captivating stories and, most of all, they want to know YOU. They want to remember your brand and choose it from among many. So it is up to you to make your presentation, marketing video and campaign as distinctive and personalized as possible.
Here are top 5 effective presentation tools that would enable you to do just that.
