Character Creator 3 Tutorial – Exporting CC3 Base Characters to Unity

Character Creator 3 (CC3) is centered to complete the 3D game character pipeline for the game dev industry. Indie game devs can now add highly optimized game character base for mobile, AR and VR developers; while also integrating InstaLOD’s model and material optimization technologies to generate game-ready characters that are animatable on-the-fly with multiple LOD outputs. 

But how do we export CC3 characters to game engines like Unity? Especially when some characters have many material textures.

My name is Phil, I am 30 years old and I from Germany. As long as I can remember, I have always used Computers, since DOS. (of course the main reason was to play video games.) I don’t remember when was the first time I tried to change something in a game, but I remember that I was young  and I was hooked even though I failed at many modding projects.

I decided to study 3D modelling for about 1.5 years. Eventually I started working on our game – Photonic Distress after meeting my colleague Irakli Gagnidze on the UE4 Marketplace. We checked YouTube videos and we saw a Character Creator (CC) video. As tired as we were, we decided to risk it and we bought Character Creator and iClone 7. It took us a while to get the results we wanted, but finally our game was filled with CC Characters!
