Delve into the game-changing character creation workflow made possible by Character Creator and ZBrush. See how character artists can seamlessly transition from concept to final stages of production to breathe life into their creations. Character Creator makes it possible by revolutionizing the design process for games, films, and animation, offering a simplified and elevated experience for ZBrush artists of all skill levels. Individual artists can fully embrace the freedom to assume control over the entire production.

AUTO-RIG FOR CONCEPT ART & 3D PRINTS

Convert complex sculpts into expertly posed masterworks with minimal effort. Precisely rig and pose multi-subtool character models, even at millions of polygons. These capabilities, along with a variety of similar features, can streamline the conventional workflows of character artists and 3D print designers.

HUMAN TOPOLOGY FOR SCULPTING & ANIMATION

CC BASE MODEL

CC base model is rich with features that can be tailored according to your preferences. Quad-based topology is optimal for subdivisional editing, and strategic edge loops balance performance and aesthetics. Streamlined UVs and robust skeletal rigs ensure that the benchmarks set by digital sculptors and animators are not just met but surpassed.

Distinct Faces, Expressions & Wrinkles

Master convincing expressions and distinct personalities by using Face Tools. Easily transfer foundational expressions from Character Creator to ZBrush for customization, and selectively update the expressions for instant turnarounds.

Production-Ready: Pose or Animate

Bring your ZBrush models to life with just a few clicks. Send your CC character to iClone for motion editing and apply top-quality mocap or premade animations. Actorcore hosts thousands of stylized and realistic animations, hand keyed by professional animators or motion captured from top performers.

GOZ ROUND TRIP

By leveraging robust character foundation and seamless GoZ round-trip features, artists can swiftly transform intricate sculptures into animated characters. Effortlessly transfer ZBrush assets, including morphs, textures, clothing, hair and accessories, to Character Creator with a single click. Animation becomes a dynamic process utilizing diverse motion libraries, HumanIK editing, or motion capture techniques for realistic, action-packed renders.
