Character Pipeline

Next-Gen Character Creation & Animation

DISCOVER A GROWING & COMPLEMENTARY WORKFLOW

Professional character animation is a highly challenging task not for any single Blender artist. Now, with Reallusion’s disruptive character pipeline, you don’t need to build everything from scratch. Instead you can start from a professionally-rigged character base, with all its inherited facial and body animation advantages, to creatively building on top.

A Revolutionary Character Pipeline

1.INSANELY FAST 3D CHARACTER GENERATION FOR BLENDER

Fully Rigged Character Bases

CC3 Base+ has evenly-distributed quad surfaces and perfect edge-loops which allow for smooth facial expressions and body animations, for users to use the character base for further sculpting in Blender.    Know More about CC3 Base+

Morph into All Possible Styles

Intuitive morph controls make for an unlimited number of character options, both for realistic humans and stylized characters.

Generate Real-time Digital Humans from One Photo

Headshot is the AI-powered Character Creator plugin that generates 3D realtime digital humans from one photograph. Apart from intelligent texture blending and head mesh creation, the generated digital doubles are fully rigged for voice lipsync, facial expression, and full body animation.    Know More about Headshot

THE SEARCH FOR DIGITAL HUMAN REALISM

SkinGen is a major breakthrough in the digital human workflow, that introduces an ultra-realistic, dynamic material system dedicated to human skin synthesis. Embedded with industry leading scan-based assets, SkinGen not only makes CC3+ characters look great, but also enlivens existing projects through significant visual upgrades.    Know More about SkinGen

Sculpt Unique Character Shapes

Blender character designers can easily load a character from Character Creator to use with Blender sculpt tools to freely change looks, and later update the changes right back to Character Creator as a new morph (shape).
