VANCOUVER – Reallusion showed innovations in motion capture and character creation at this year’s SIGGRAPH show, including the standalone character creation tool Character Creator 3, the realtime motion capture solution Motion Live, and 3D face motion capture with Live Face for iPhone X. The company’s goal is to present a total solution to build, morph, animate and gamify 3D characters.
Character Creator 3 (CC3), the new generation of iClone Character Creator, will separate from iClone, becoming a professional standalone tool. Character Creator 3 is a full character-creation solution for generating optimized 3D characters ready for game or intensive artistic design with a new quad base, round-trip editing with ZBrush and photo realistic rendering using Iray.
CC 3 provides a new game character base with topology optimized for mobile, game, AR/VR developers.The big breakthrough is the integration with InstaLOD’s model and material optimization technologies to generate game-ready characters that are animatable on-the-fly, fulfilling the complete character pipeline on polygon reduction, material merge, texture baking, remeshing and LOD generation.
Character Creator 3 will launch in September and is available for pre-order now.
iClone Motion Live, the multi-device motion capture system, connects industry standard Motion Gear into one solution, include Rokoko, Leap Motion, Xsens, Faceware, OptiTrack, Noitom and iPhone X.
Motion Live’s intuitive plug-and-play design makes connecting complicated mocap devices a simple selection by animating custom imported characters or fully-rigged 3D characters generated by Character Creator, Daz Studio, or from other industry standard sources.
Reallusion is debuting 3D face motion capture with the iPhone X with Live Face app for iClone at SIGGRAPH. Users can record instant facial motion capture on any 3D character with an iPhone X. Expanding the technology behind Animoji and Memojis, Reallusion lifts iPhone X animation and motion capture to the next level for studios and independent creators. Combine the power of iPhone X mocap with iClone Motion Live to blend face motion capture with Xsens, Perception Neuron, Rokoko, OptiTrack and Leap Motion for a truly realtime live experience in full body mocap.
