Sketchfab integration with Reallusion’s Character Creator 2.0 adds instant and flexible sharing of 3D characters to other CC enhancements, including PBR shaders, image-based lighting options and a new substance material generator.
SAN JOSE, CA -- Reallusion and Sketchfab have announced new technology connecting Character Creator 2.0’s 3D characters to Sketchfab’s powerful real-time 3D content viewer and sharing platform. Sketchfab integration adds instant sharing of 3D characters on top of other enhancements, including PBR shaders, image-based lighting options and a new substance material generator.
Character Creator 2.0 characters are fully-equipped to animate in real-time on the web or in VR with Sketchfab. Character Creator tools provide pre-rigged character bases that can be clothed, morphed and animated from head to toe. Hundreds of motions and facial animations are available in iClone to make characters for Sketchfab come to life with ease. Character Creator 2.0 allows users to import PBR textures made with 3D paint tools and export their CC assets to iClone, Unreal, Unity, or Sketchfab with the same PBR visual quality.
The new “Upload to Sketchfab” function lets Character Creator 2.0 users publish 3D characters directly to Sketchfab to share their content with the world. Users can export the character along with its motion clips, facial morph expressions and PBR textures. Characters with different motion clips animate in real-time in the Sketchfab viewer. Character Creator 2.0 3D characters can be viewed real-time in 3D viewers in Facebook, Twitter or HTML.
The Sketchfab viewer provides a dynamic way to browse and view 3D character content in the Reallusion Marketplace. Sketchfab can render blend and shape animations generated from iClone in real-time, such as this soft cloth physics demo.
Character Creator 2.0 is available for Windows 7 and above. The full version of the software is free to anyone with a license of iClone 6 Pro, or the upcoming iClone 7 ($199). A free lite edition of Character Creator includes the features of the commercial version, but limits users to five exports and a maximum of 30 seconds of animation in FBX files.
