Hi all,

In our last video, you learned all about the real-time surface smoothing capabilities that will be introduced in iClone 6, that automatically created smoother and more even surfaces on models in real-time using distance adaptive technology.

This time around, we have something even cooler… Tesselation!

Tessellation allows you to add geometry to any model and have it render in real-time via the addition of height and vector displacement maps. This is made possible with Direct X 11, which iClone 6 will support!

In a real-time environment, it’s hard to create detailed surfaces without raising polygon count significantly. However, the appearance of surface details can be accomplished via height or vector displacement maps, which create the illusion of texture on a surface by applying a pre-generated image map to it.

 

By modifying the hieight displacement map alone, you can also change facial details, giving you the ability to customize and emphasize certain facial features as well.

The limitation of height maps is that it is just that, creating the illusion of height, but often without detailed curvature or shape. Vector displacement on the other hand is able to produce incredibly detailed shapes from simple material map data.

One of the huge advantages of vector displacement is the ability to produce undercut details on your model. Where height displacement simply stretches out the geometry, vector displacement produces refined curves and edges, creating an unparalleled sense of detail to your model.

Next up, we’ll talk about dynamic textures, another huge step in creating amazingly realistic surfaces.

 

Note: Since iClone6 is still under development, the iClone user interface in the video is not the final design for iClone6.

a) Wow... this is fantastic, and I can't wait!!!  Thanks for the updated pictures.

b) I foresee a new version of something like B2M and other add-on modules in my future, in addition to iClone v6 and also maybe an updated graphics card.  I sure hope my piggy bank has a good summer.

Much better features it seems, as time goes on. Features that should create some amazing artwork on many model bases.

I'd guess that, for instance, you could put a nose on a character without actually having the geometry structure in place.

I'd like to also say thanks for giving me time to use my current graphics card during this waiting period. The new one is still in the box, but it has a lifetime warranty, so it can wait just as long as it takes. So take the time needed.

It's going to be a long summer waiting for iClone 6. I'm not very patient and I am very excited.
