SAN JOSE, CA — Reallusion (https://www.reallusion.com) has added to its list of tools for the design of human characters. Character Creator 3.3 features new realism tools that work with the already released Digital Human Shader and the Headshot plug-in for rapid digital double creation. Accompanying the release of Character Creator 3.3, the digital human workflow evolves with SkinGen, an intuitive, dynamic skin layer system, and CC 3 Base+, a greatly enhanced character topology for overall visual upgrades.
“SkinGen is a major breakthrough in the digital human workflow that introduces an ultra-realistic dynamic material system dedicated to human skin synthesis,“ explains John Martin, VP, product marketing, Reallusion. “The tools inside SkinGen are also empowered by the combination of industry-leading partners like Texturing XYZ and Substance. SkinGen makes it possible for anyone to create a character with custom looks for age or appearance, and ultra-fine details down to the pores.”
Character Creator 3 (CC3) Base+ improves character the mesh, UV and skeletal rig, fulfilling the requirements of detailed sculpting and realistic animation. Topology & mesh enhancements allow for evenly-distributed quad surface and perfect edge-loops for smooth facial expressions and body animations. UV optimizations have been made for improvements in head, hand, nose and lip creation, and the UDIM layout has been optimized for ZBrush.
Basic SkinGen features are included as a free update in CC3.3. Along with embedded sample skins and makeup assets, all users are able to enjoy the layer stack and rich slider adjustments. The new character base (CC3 Base+) is required to present the quality for SkinGen. All existing characters can be easily converted into CC3 Base+, and a batch converter is also provided in the CC3.3 release.
Reallusion offers a number of bundles. The Ultimate Digital Human Creation Bundle is priced at $399 and includes
Character Creator 3 Pipeline. SkinGen Premium plug-in for Character Creator, Ultimate Morphs (export), Realistic Human Skin (export), Makeup & SFX (export), and Human Anatomy Set.
