Live animation with full body motion has been a dream for many and with this combination, the possibilities for live and recorded animation are nearly limitless and very affordable.
(PRWEB) August 08, 2016
After several months of a successful beta testing campaign, the iClone Perception Neuron Plugin has launched, putting the power of Perception Neuron’s motion capture combined with Reallusion’s 3D character animation software into the hands of animators, filmmakers and game developers.
Developed for both recording animation as well as for live performance capture, the iClone Perception Neuron Plugin is available in SINGLE or DUO capabilities allowing either one or two simultaneous character mocap. The plugins will be available for purchase from the iClone website at special promotional launch prices of $199 and $299 for the SINGLE and DUO respectively. In addition, Perception Neuron will launch specially priced software/hardware packages that will not only include their motion capture suit, but also the complete iClone animation suite. Prices start at $1,490 for one 18 Neuron kit + software, and go up to $3,190 for two 32 Neuron kits + software. These packages will be available exclusively on the Perception Neuron website.
These bundled packages will combine the adaptiveness and versatility of Perception Neuron’s motion capture tool combined with Reallusion’s 3D character creation capability, motion editing, and facial puppet and audio lip-sync tools offering animators a complete and robust solution for their content development.
“We teamed up with Reallusion because we wanted to give both of our users the full scope of what our motion capture technology —combined with the remarkable range of iClone’s character and animation tools—can offer for their content development,” says Haoyang Liu, CEO of Noitom. “Live animation with full body motion has been a dream for many and with this combination, the possibilities for live and recorded animation are nearly limitless and very affordable. We are giving animators everywhere the chance to really step up their animation game and test the boundaries of their creations.”

"I am very excited to see a seamless integration between iClone and Perception Neuron tools, says Charles Chen, CEO of Reallusion. “Through the rigorous Beta period, Reallusion and Noitom worked closely to push forward many technological advancements that made all of this possible. The articulate, wireless body capture along with the delicate finger motion tracking give iClone 3D characters unprecedented freedom of performance. In addition, the power to live record dual character interaction gives motion designers everywhere, another huge productivity lift."
