Motion & Animation
From external 3D tools to iClone:

Required version: 3DXchaneg5 PRO and above
To apply motions to iClone standard human characters, you are suggested to export your motions in FBX/BVH format. Then, you will need to characterize the motion inside 3DXchange for use with iClone characters.

From iClone to external 3D tools:

Required version: 3DXchaneg5 Pipeline and above
You can choose to export characters with animations in FBX format, by bringing characters into 3DXchange, and then using the bone structure to deliver the BVH/FBX motions to match your character's target tool. For different tools, you will have different options to optimize your settings.

Below are some examples on how to import, and export, human character between iClone and other tools.
