I'm not "getting" this. Is the new character creator (and lip-synch improvements) a component of iClone 6? or is 3dxchange 6 required to use it? I received an email today for a special price on 3dxchange 6 that's only good for 72 hours, but I don't want to spend $179 for 3dxchange 6 if it is not necessary to get the character creator (and improved lip-synch). I do not need to export characters/props from iClone, but I would very much like to be able to use these two new features. Sure would appreciate a clarification, please.
The G6 Character Creator is a component of iClone 6.2. The major benefit for having 3DXchange 6.2 Pipeline will be the ability to export all those fantastic characters you create in the G6 Character Creator. If you only plan to use the characters you create in iClone then you won't need 3DXchange 6 Pipeline, but you still may want to import 3rd party characters like Daz Genesis figures with the improved lip-sync features of 3DX 6.2.
Then when we release 3DXchange 6.3 you will be able to use this to help create your own morphs and cloth for use with the G6 Character Creator.
