Dear Reallusion Members and Developers, 

Reallusion has enhanced Character Creator (CC) into an improved character design tool infused with the power of Physically-based Rendering (PBR).
The coming release of the brand new CC content pack will also be empowered by PBR.

Character Creator v2.0 for iClone

Industry Standard PBR Visuals
With High Dynamic Range (HDR) Image Based Lighting, and built-in PBR feature that is used by Substance Painter and other PBR tools, Character Creator 2.0 (CC 2.0) not only delivers high visual realism, but also serves as a new material content standard that maintains a consistent PBR look between iClone 7, 3D game engines (Unity, Unreal), and popular PBR design applications.
>> Click HERE to know more about PBR.

Dynamic PBR Effects
In CC2.0, you can load your own Substance PBR materials created by Substance Designer or directly from any *.sbsar files. This allows you to fashion unlimited combinations of real-life effects by generating lots of procedural variations or loading your own image patterns on select objects.

Compatible software
CC 2.0 is compatible with both iClone 6.5 and iClone 7. When exporting iAvatar in CC 2.0, there is an option to select which version of iAvatar will be exported.
  • iClone 6.5 users can see the Classic contents only in iClone 6.5.
    * System will automatically convert PBR contents to Classic Shader when exporting the iClone 6-compatible iAvatar.
  • iClone 7 supports both Classic and PBR Color Space, so users can see PBR effects directly inside iClone 7.

I also got the Reallusion email about the release of lady pirate and CC 2.0 beta, but the link on my account takes me back to the existing CC 1.52, and clicking the license link from the email claims I am "not qualified for the event" (same as lieans). This prevents me from downloading lady pirate because CC 2.0 beta is not installed, and cannot be downloaded. Even if I could download it, I can't get a license from the email. Something is not right.

Unfortunately there is an issue with the redeem system that is giving this incorrect message.

Please be assured we will get this fixed as soon as possible. Providing you have pre-ordered iClone 7 + Lady Pirate then you should have qualified to be able to download the Character Creator 2.0 Beta version. As soon as this is fixed we will let you all know.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Thanks for the update, Peter. I was one of the very FIRST to purchase the early access combo, and I am very impressed by where iClone is heading to. When I first got iClone 4 years ago, I never imagined it would get such advanced features as we have seen in version 6 (SpeedTrees, Kinect support, DX11 tessellation, real-time dynamic hair and cloth), the introduction of CC, and now what we see coming up in version 7. It's all very impressive - I am actually baffled by the state-of-the-art iClone is heading to, and also the new free bone rigging system in CTA3. You guys rock! ^___^

It's really exciting! Hope this glitch can be fixed soon, so I can try the CC 2.0.
