The long awaited and highly anticipated iClone5 is almost here! Reallusion has once again raised the bar on affordable, do-it-yourself animation with the coming launch of iClone5. Since 2009, Reallusion has been receiving tons of feedback and wishful features from all over the animation industry. We are now very excited to announce that this revolutionary, animation dream tool is almost here.

Tweaked with Autodesk’s® HumanIK® game middleware; iClone5 enables characters to interact realistically with their environment or even other characters. Create in-house animations by moving your body in front of any Kinect Motion Capture system and start producing your own customized animations on the spot! Also included, are real-time physics, toon rendering and many other shader effects that will bring you to the next level of professional movie-making. Read More and Pre-order today!

Natural Motion

Seamless Motion Connection

The motion graph system consists of hundreds of well-calculated, daily motions for top mocap quality. It automatically generates natural transitions between previously selected motions for male or female actors. Its motion graph technology presents a general framework for human motion states to blend together seamlessly. Storytellers simply need to select target motions under different states such as; standing idle, sitting, kneeling or lying down. It then automatically sequences motions, and blends them together in a naturally believable manner.

Human IK Motion Editing

Licensed from Autodesk®, the same core technology of Motion Builder for human motion control; iClone5 meets the highest standards of human bone structure and motion editing systems. Using Human IK as the core character engine allows your 3D characters to now have automatic floor contact, while the intuitive real-time IK motion control keeps a proper body balance. Props also have motion controls with flexible motion adaptations such as holding a gun with both hands, or advanced person-to-person interactions such as shaking hands.

Body Puppeteering

You may use a mouse or any other handheld device to create an unlimited number of motion variations to reflect your character's personality. Users may select body parts and add puppet behaviors, while they control their animations during playback or real-time recording. You may also manually control the puppeteering speed and direction, or let the animation loop with slider alterations. Animators are also able to create frequent motion alternatives with 55 different puppet profiles found in 4 categories.

Enhanced Visual Quality

Ambient Occlusion

Ambient occlusion is a newly added shading method in iClone5 which helps add realism to models and scenes. It enhances edge shadows by simulating the attenuation of light due to occlusion. Ambient occlusion simply attempts to approximate the way light radiates in real life, especially off what are normally considered non-reflective surfaces.

Post FX & Toon Shading

Cartoon rendering and cell shading allows animators to create a flat-looking 3D image with a cartoonish look typically exemplified in artistically animated movies. With enhanced post FX rendering options - iClone5 users can render and create key-able visual effects like; blur lens, sketch, or black & white movies. This allows for a whole range of amazing post effects that transform any 3D animations into top-notch studio art motions.

Physics Animation

Rigid Body

Rigid body dynamics enable you to simulate objects with a high degree of realism such as fall, collide and bounce. All these movements are controlled by physics properties such as; mass, elasticity, friction, damping, impulse, collisions, constraints, and others. You may even add rigid body physics to any prop or character to add another dimension of interactivity between subjects.

Soft Body

Soft body dynamics focus on realistic physical simulations that deform whole objects and singular plane such as clothes. Animations are now incredibly life-like as objects can accurately represent their elastic effects like rubber, squashed balls or jelly puddings. You may even simulate cloth effects from a singular plane with different material stiffness such as silk, linen or any other materials that will be affected by air resistance.

The additional Mocap Device Plug-in (List Price: $99.95) will be readily available for users who wish to connect their iClone5 with real-time input devices such as Kinect's Motion Capture system. This will allow for highly customized, at-home motion capturing that requires no special suits, additional cameras or sensors.

Kinect Motion Capture

IClone5 offers the most affordable and intuitive, motion capturing solution in the industry. Now you may simply use your body to control virtual actors, in real-time, with motion smoothing optimizations. Lightspeed your animations and create realistic-looking motions as now you can literally control actors with your body movements.
