Why Character Creator?
Character Creator(CC) is a full character creation solution for designers to easily generate, import and customize stylized or realistic character assets for use with iClone, Maya, Blender, Unreal Engine, Unity, or any other 3D tools. CC connects industry-leading pipelines with one system for 3D character generation, animation rigging, asset management, look-dev rendering, and interactive design.
CHARACTERIZE ANY ACTOR TO CC
Whether humans, creatures or props, creativity is no longer limited by the existing CC character base. Any rigged biped models can be imported, characterized, and facial rigged in Character Creator. New features now make any character compatible with thousands of motion assets, ready for natural lip-sync, motion capture, and animation controls in iClone. CC characters can also be optimized for low-poly, high-performance crowd simulation, AR, VR, and Metaverse.
CC Avatar (Standard Human) – Fully rigged with CC3+ topology, supports face and body morph, outfit system, SkinGen material, and full iClone animation compatibility
Humanoid (Non Standard Human) – Biped model characterized for CC and iClone, supports HumanIK body rig, spring bone, facial rig for expression and lipsync
Crowd (ActorBUILD) – A low-poly, merged UV, one material character converted from CC avatar for high-performance crowd simulation
Creature (Non Human) – In any animatable skeletal form, be able to import custom animation, supports CC IK/FK posing and iClone animation editing
Prop – Any 3D model with hierarchical mesh node, custom morph or bone structure for animation
Character Creator gives character designers the largest possible character usability with the CC character base for character design, importing humanoid characters, or auto-rigging static models. Choose to subdivide and export characters for highly-detailed rendering, or decimate characters for mobile apps or crowd simulation.
