Iray rendering allows for the creation of state-of-the-art workflow with access to photo-realistic and physically based rendering technology by simulating real-world physical behaviors of light and materials. The Iray implementation in Character Creator and iClone comes with a collection of easy-to-apply materials that do not require the user to have in-depth knowledge in CGI techniques, thanks to its material and light auto-conversion workflow and a vast material library.

BEST PRESENTATION OF YOUR WORK

A photo-realistic, cinematic look-and-feel in Character Creator is now a reality with the Iray Render Plug-in. Utilize Iray’s GPU accelerated ray-tracer and MDL material systems, combined with CC’s professional character, posing, lighting and stage library. Achieve a whole new level of detail in work with Character Creator and Iray.

AUTOMATIC PBR TO IRAY MDL CONVERSION,
PLUS ADVANCED SHADERS

Reallusion’s Iray plugin is specially designed with an Iray Super Shader. Automatically convert CC and iClone PBR materials into Iray's MDL format, ensuring material likeness from real-time engine to final render. Use the Multiply feature to further enhance the PBR appearance, or layer advanced shader effects like Subsurface Scattering , Reflectivity , Coating, and Anisotropy. For ease of use, one can multi-select materials and change their shader properties all at once.

INTERACTIVE RENDERING
  • Nvidia AI Accelerated GPU rendering provides high interactivity and fast image output.
  • Pause and Resume : pause to dedicate the system performance on scene editing, and resume rendering later.
  • Instant updates to the preview render while changing the camera, lighting and material attributes. Rendering updates on the next render session when there is a mesh change like pose or expression editing.
  • Turn on auto-update to refresh the preview render while you work.
FREE BONUS: BIG IRAY MDL LIBRARY EXTENSION

The Iray Material 600+ is a free material expansion pack designed for Reallusion's Iray Plugin We have prepared over 600 of the best real-world materials, to give you a intuitive and reliable way to add realism to your design. Materials are arranged in 17 gallery folders that are categorized by type: glass, leather, gems, rubber, liquid, etc. Expect the following unique advantages:

  • Materials are saved in iMDL format for convenient drag & drop deployment.
  • Adjustable parameters give one material many editable visual varieties
  • Fast identification and indexing with large material thumbnails.
  • Consistent scale compatible with real-world measurements. For example, a gemstone material must have proper light absorb and scatter range that is befitting of a small piece of fine jewelry.
