In modern AAA games you often have a staggering amount of control over your character’s creation. As a game developer you may think, “Why can’t we do this for creating game assets?”. Simple answer, you can and that’s exactly what Character Creator 3 from Reallusion enables you to do. Starting from a base mesh you have a staggering amount of control over just about every single visual aspect of your character. You can flesh this out by adding a variety of clothing items, props, hair and more, all via simple drag and drop. Best of all, your character is full rigged and ready for export and animating.
This approach to character creation is nothing new, several other packages we have covered in the past such as Fuse, MakeHuman and the recently cancelled Manuel Bastioni Labs all take a very similar approach to character creation. Character Creator 3 however has some key advantages. One of the biggest is it’s game engine focus, with the ability to create game friendly meshes (both in terms of polygon count and UV layouts) and export them to a number of game engines and applications including Unreal Engine, Unity, Maya, Max and Blender. There is also functionality for tweaking your generated mesh right down to the vertex level, substance designer integration for materials, fine level PBR texturing control, templates for creating your own clothing and tools for automatically creating multiple LOD meshes.
