Animation Studios often capture actor performances inside plain canvases with the use of generic characters, making it difficult to visualize the final scene and make corrections if necessary. But thanks to iClone’s Motion LIVE system, production studios now have the power to immerse their performers into 3D environments in real-time, helping them get a sense of the atmosphere and demands that the project requires.
See how Florida-based animation studio — Monkey Chow Productions has learned to employ bleeding edge technology to perfect and lightspeed animation production thanks to iClone’s realtime animation.
I am 51 years old and my creativity has manifested itself in various ways throughout my life. I made films as a teenager with my Super 8 camera. Later I became a singer/songwriter and performed with my band.
Eventually I settled into a career as a graphic designer and web developer. As a hobby I became a Halloween haunter and that passion grew into quite a production.
Our annual Halloween walk through attracts thousands of visitors every year. In 2011, I began to do 3D projection mapping on my house as part of my Halloween decorating. The videos I created went viral on YouTube with more than a million views. The animations I am able to create with iClone have been critical to my success. I have since turned my passion for projection mapping into a business, helping other people do the same.
Hello, my name is Cameron Hines, I’m from Atlanta Georgia and I love to create animations, whether it’s 2D or 3D. I went to school as a web designer, but deep down I knew animation was my passion. I wanted to switch degrees but halfway through my web design degree I couldn’t afford to. So, I told myself I would learn animation on my own.
At the time, iClone 5 just came and it was affordable enough for me to start creating decent 3D animation. Growing up I loved cartoons and video games, so I always wondered how artist would create them. Now with iClone 7 and CrazyTalk Animator 3, and Cloud Animator (CLA), I feel like animators can now create amazing art, on a tight budget. My goal is to be part of the many artists at Reallusion Marketplace , who’ve made a successful career in animation.

Hello! My name is Daniel S. Ferebee and I am a retired school teacher living on the east coast of the United States. I have been involved in the creative arts for more than 20 years now. The content I develop includes graphic design, photography, music production, illustration, animation, voiceover and character design.
When I first started working, creating content with digital technology was not a part of the process. However, now I constantly look for ways to merge traditional design techniques with digital design tools!
Most of all I love to create characters for animation! CrazyTalk Animator has been and will continue to be a great asset within my box of tools for doing the work I love.
My name is Benjamin Sokomba Dazhi. I am from Nigeria. I have been doing animations since 2014, and I am always developing myself in it.
I am an animator and I mostly use iClone as my main animation software tool. I am very passionate about animation and I am creating a fully animated movie using iClone. In my country Nigeria, there are very few animation studios but we are beginning to grow in numbers. For now I am working alone as an indie animator, but thanks to Reallusion tools I am slowly building my team and making my animation studios dream come true!
442oons is a highly successful YouTube channel with over a million subscribers, that creates weekly-animated football parodies with songs and pictures.
Dean Stobbart, originally a teacher from Norton, County Durham, had in the past been a part-time voice actor and also did some animation for his lessons.
From the beginning, Dean saw a gap in the market that “no one had really done football cartoons before”, so he made his first video – a cartoon parody of Luis Suárez and Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger in a scene from The Silence of the Lambs.
