DAZ User Harnesses Character Animation with iClone

CGSociety covers the story on how indie filmmaker/3D artist – Solomon W. Jagwe created his solo film NaEEXUS in 30 days by using DAZ3D Content and Character Creator 3 (CC3).

“I was able to create the film in the space of 1 month. This was made possible by the awesome 3D models and characters, that I used from the DAZ3D marketplace which are very well textured and rigged. I didn’t have to model any of the characters or environments. The character animation was made possible by the iClone Motion Live and iPhone Face Mocap plugins, together with Character Creator 3
 (CC3).”

Post Magazine Review: Reallusion’s Motion LIVE mocap platform

POST

Independent film director/animator Solomon W. Jagwe reviewed Reallusion’s new Motion LIVE mocap platform, and how it helped him achieve multiple animation goals within a short time, all within the confines of a limited budget!

Solomon used a Perception Neuron 2.0 motion capture suit together with an iPhone X as motion capture hardware by simultaneously connecting them with iClone. This gave Solomon the freedom to act out the different parts of his characters, while creating banks of animations that he can could later reuse for his new, animated children’s TV series – The Adventures of Nkoza & Nankya

Face tracking solutions using smartphones were part of several technologies shown at SIGGRAPH, but one that seemed particularly accessible was Reallusion’s LIVE FACE for iPhone X. When Cartoon Brew tried out LIVE FACE, a 3D character head moved and performed lip sync simply from our facial movements live in front of an iPhone.
