Developing stylized 3D toon characters for animation is not as easy as you might think, and endowing these characters with exceptional appeal is even harder! Character Creator (CC) eliminates the vexing process of modeling caricatures from scratch, and helps you take the advantage of merging existing morphs while keeping the flexibility of refining them in external 3D sculpting tools. It is not only fast and easy, but also exquisite!
CREATE CUSTOM BASE MORPHS
Instantly Import Existing 3D Morph Shapes
It takes just a minute to transform a 3D character mesh into an adjustable Morph Slider by simply importing your character in .iAvatar or .Obj formats. You may then edit the category, thumbnail, minimum and maximum amount of transformations for your target morph appearance. Once the Morph Slider is created, then you can immediately see different morph results by adjusting the intensity of the shape morph.
*Note: The .Obj for the 3D character must maintain a CC compatible mesh topology in order to be imported.
Get More New Characters by Blending Different Morphs
The power of the Morph Slider shines when you start mixing and blending between multiple Morph Sliders! Easily combine multiple, unique and iconic body shapes from your library to create a family of specialized characters. Tweak and fine-tune the contours directly within 3D Character Creator to get the result you want without any modeling. Best of all, no matter how peculiar your stylized toons are, they will all be rigged-ready for iClone facial and body animation!
Create Your Own Morphs with 3D Sculpting Tools
If you have a good grasp on 3D modeling tools such as ZBrush, 3D-Coat, Mudbox, or even free ones like Sculptris and Blender, then you have the freedom of sculpting an exclusive characters based on your own design. To do so, first adjust and define the body proportion of the base morph in Character Creator (CC). Second, export it in .Obj format to other sculpting tools for further modeling. Once it’s done, import .Obj back to CC as a morph slider, for convenient character editing and style setting, before sending it to iClone for real-time animations.
*Note: You can direct import and export character morphs in .Obj format if you have purchased 3DXchange 6 PRO / Pipeline.
Extreme Styles that Go Beyond Imagination

CREATE MORPHABLE PARTS
Specific Morphs for Body Parts

Specific Morphs for Face Parts
Just like body parts, facial features can also be custom designed in Character Creator or with other 3rd party modeling tools! Create and apply unique facial details such as a witch’s nose, elf ears, clown mouth, or fishy eyes to make your characters stands out!
