FAST CHARACTER ANIMATION WITH
COMMERCIAL-QUALITY RENDERING

Enliven 3D Scenes and Metaverse with Animated Characters
Omniverse Real-time RTX Ray Trace Render and Collaboration

The iClone (IC) Omniverse Connector adds the power of a full 3D animation system with characters, motions and unlimited creative variations to NVIDIA Omniverse. Professionals of any skill level can leverage the tools to animate characters with efficiency and without the need to outsource animation production due to cost or human resource challenges. Enable rapid character creation, choose animations from a vast library of motion capture, or blend and edit custom motion with iClone. For Reallusion iClone and CC users, Omniverse is an incredible addition allowing live coordination with other 3D tools, or with other workstations via USD* data interchange standard.
*USD stands for Pixar's Universal Scene Description

GET PRODUCTIVE WITH LIVE SYNC New in v8.3

Realtime Animation Preview   ‧   Two-Way Workflow

iClone Omniverse Live Sync harnesses the full productivity of iClone's rapid animation capabilities for characters, props, lights, and cameras. Designers can now preview Omniverse renders in real-time while animating in iClone, enabling them to enjoy seamless two-way USD data transfer for sleek collaborative design.

Realtime Preview & Full-Frame Transfer

Motion Editing & Preview

  • Simultaneous real-time live preview for animation editing of the face and body.
  • Animate by applying iClone’s premade motions or use the handy editing tools.
  • Character or object interaction are made simple with Reach Target constraints. 

Full-Frame Animation Transfer

  • Happy with your animation? Selectively send animations to their respective objects when you are ready.
  • Supports bone and morph animations for 3D characters.
  • Animate transformations for props, lights, and cameras.

Intuitive Two-Way Production Workflow

  • Selectively import Omniverse scene data/props as references for iClone character alignment or object interaction.
  • Two-way light creation and property control.
  • Synchronize camera shots and switches in iClone for Omniverse cinematography.

Flexible Transfer & Management

  • Dedicated Panel: Streamlined multi-select transfer and unlinking.
  • Toolbar shortcut & Viewport selection: Selectively transfer content from the viewport without UI obstruction.
  • Toolbar shortcut & Scene Manager: Organized modular view and grouping management for transfer.

Textureless Live Sync for Optimal Performance

  • Reallusion's proprietary Progressive/Deferred Texture Loading technology can Live Sync animations from iClone without taxing system resources.
  • Keeping the scene textureless in iClone frees up graphics memory that can be dedicated to rendering in Omniverse.

Automate Character Movement with iClone Motion Director

  • Use Motion Director “Play2Animate” game-play controls to drive characters.
  • Apply motion triggers and dynamic cameras to direct Omniverse scenes in realtime.
  • Navigate your characters with mouse clicks, hotkeys, or game controllers.

LIVE SYNC SUPPORTED ASSETS

The primary objective of iClone-Omniverse Live Sync is to leverage iClone's robust capabilities to rapidly animate 3D characters, props, lights, and cameras, while ensuring synchronous rendering within the Omniverse environment. Additionally, the feature facilitates seamless collaboration with the Omniverse ecosystem.
