Main Features of Character Creator:
Quick-Start Pre-sets and easy-to-use interface
Drag-and-drop presets, in well-organized categories are available for user to generate various character styles in no time at all. Users can also can manually do further modifications with the use of sliders to create characters with more sophisticated details. The intuitive dockable user interface design brings you the most flexible editing environment.
Morphable Muscle Shape & Bone Scales. The brand new, authentic one-mesh CC Characters are designed for versatile body morphs. Besides applying basic figure shapes from the preset library users may also further adjust the body, or individual parts such as: Head, Torso, Chest, Waist, Arm, Hand, Leg and Foot.
Morphable Face Creation & Editing. To easily create unlimited authentic human faces, users can either directly apply any of the presets for quick prototypes, or can further refine the appearance through highly detailed facial sliders, grouped into intuitive segments such as: Skull, Forehead, Eye/Eyelash, Brow, Ear, Nose, Cheek, Jaw, Teeth and Mouth.
Adjustable skin Properties. Freely apply different texture patterns to a masked area. Blend color variations and skin pores and wrinkles to generate the right skin for characters with various ages, genders and ethnicities.
Aging System. The full-body Aging Morphs and Skin Normals options, give users the power to easily transform characters into elderly ones. This can be applied to different genders and body shapes. Gracefully age your characters’ look or go all out and instantly turn them into seniors by adjusting the slider control.
Sun Tan & Tattoo. Import decals (tattoos) and move or resize them on top of the skin to preference. Users can also use a mask layer (suntan) combined with the sun tan sliders to simulate natural summer tan lines, a sporty-beach look, or sunburn effects.
Cosmetic Design. Character Creator has integrated a complete make-up system based on professional cosmetic theories. Design the best brows for your character’s face shape with eyeliners that fit her/his eyes. Apply eye shadows or add a shimmery eye effect to create luminizing eyelids. Add blush to enhance contour, or change lipstick colors and specularity to create a lubricated appearance. Additionally, users may manually define the area of any make-up to apply true-to-life finishes.
Dynamic Clothes Design. Easily get your character dressed in full outfits by layer-applying the underwear, upper clothes, lower pants/skirts and outer garments. The best part is that the same clothes can be conformed to different body shapes, and users may further refine the result using the conforming tool.
Color, Segment, Pattern. Use an RGB mask to define preferred cloth or shoes segments. Make unique outfit designs by changing each segment’s colour, pattern or fabric. Freely apply a worn-out effect or add dirt and dust or add torn patterns to give jeans a variety authentic styles.
Patch & Logo. Import users-created decals made with diffuse, specular and normal maps. Then imprint these logos over fabrics or paste, weave and stitch patches and plastic stickers anywhere you wish.
Content Expansion The Character Creator (CC) Essentials packs expand the 3D character design capabilities with more morphs, aging, skin and cosmetic kits. Character clothing and fabric design assets and tools add dynamic texture layers for stylizing the wardrobe.
Characters for Games Character Creator models are animated in iClone and readied for the game engine of choice though the iClone Animation Pipeline. Once a 3D character is created and animated it’s sent to 3DXchange and exported for Unity, Unreal or Stingray via optimized FBX.
