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-

Highly-Commended_100x100“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.

Beyond GoAnimate: Comparing CrazyTalk Animator 2

Editor: David Arandle

Introduction

If you’re like me and have been using GoAnimate to create low cost explainer videos or other animated cartoons then you’ll certainly have discovered many of  GoAnimate’s limitations. You may even be looking for an alternative? CrazyTalk Animator 2 by Reallusion is a professional animation studio that, like GoAnimate, requires no drawing skills at all but can give you more flexibility to animate your ideas exactly as you visualise them. It may be the animation solution you’ve really be looking for.

3D Total Review: Jahirul Amin uses his professional knowledge to take Reallusion’s newest iteration of CrazyTalk Animator out for a spin…

 Review Score: 4 out of 5 

“CrazyTalk Animator 2 has plenty of other tricks up its sleeve: from its Multi-Dimensional Character System, allowing you to animate characters at different angles, to its ability to render out in numerous styles.”

“If you are interested at creating animated content but without the hassle of everything that comes with it, I highly recommend you try it out.”

Animation Magazine Review: iClone 5.5 impresses as “PitchViz” and “Previz” for filmmakers

Animation Magazine’s Todd Perry reviews iClone 5.5 ~

“I am very excited about the potential for smaller films to be able to use the iClone technology to develop PitchViz (PreViz uses to raise filmmaking funds) and actual PreViz to aid directors to make choices before he’s onset with 150 people waiting for him to decide.”

CrazyTalk7 wins Macworld 2013 Best of Show [Video]

San Francisco, CA FEB 7th – MACWORLD/iWorld,
Reallusion presented CrazyTalk7 in our innagural Macworld. Our booth was inside the Appalooza section exhibiting the newest iOS and OSX apps.   The expo featured FaceTime powered robots, the latest from Blue microphones and in the middle of it all was CrazyTalk7 and a talking cat. The cat was quite popular and  the most asked question from show attendees was, “Can I do that with my pet?”… Yes and now you can do it on the Mac.  We demoed CrazyTalk to a big part of the 25,000 expoers and joined with the other 300 exhibitors to show the latest innovation in software and accessories for the Ultimate iFan.  The week was made even better with the news that CrazyTalk7 received “Best of Show”.
