Reallusion is very excited to share with all of you some of the more interesting things that we are working on for 2016. We are always looking to the future and eager to share with you our upcoming plans, and although not every schedule is set in stone we will be focusing on meeting all of these new updates. Please take note that if we did not mention other items that you have been waiting for, then its not because they have been cancelled. Its just that we will be announcing them once we have some visuals to go along with the news. 

So here is a synopsis of what you can expect for 2016!


=====================================================

Character Creator - Opens to a World of Customization 

Create Custom Character Morphs 
In the latest Character Creator 1.4 update, we provide a range of tools for users to create their own custom morph sliders. Easily generate a new morph from an iAvatar character, or create a new morph slider from two or more character morphs, to create something completely unique! And if you are familiar with 3D sculpting tools, then load your own character morph from any .OBJ file, and start morphing.

Create Custom Cloth and Hair 
In the upcoming Character Creator 1.5 version, we will provide design templates, sample files and documentation for custom Cloth, Hair, Shoes, and Accessory designs. Allowing users to finally be able to import their own character assets (.FBX format) while assigning appropriate outfit layers for optimal mix-and-match dressing capabilities.

=====================================================

popVideo Converter 3 - HD Transparent Video Maker

popVideo Converter 3 is in the works, and this time it supports HD video conversion using H.264 codec. Now video resolution can be up to 4K, while keeping a smaller, more manageable video file size. The dual-resolution popVideo format design guarantees real-time transparent playback in both iClone and CrazyTalk Animator, giving you the highest final video render quality while allowing you to smoothly play-back when previewing in real-time.

The newly added Timeline can also deal with different chroma-keying scenarios such as; lighting change, camera move, color spill, or even out of frame issues. Allowing anyone with a mobile camera and a low budget, green screen setup to make quick use of instant chroma-keying.

Additionally, besides supporting popVideo output for iClone and CrazyTalk usage, popVideo converter will also export transparent videos in industry standard AVI and MOV formats for practical use with any 3rd party video editing software.

=====================================================

CrazyTalk Animator 3 - Animate any shape, any way. 

Free Bone Animation 
This enhanced version will allow you to fluidly animate any cutout image by simply defining a basic bone structure. The new free bone tools can be used on individual image sprites for unprecedented motion flexibility when working with sophisticated characters.

Individual Elastic Sprites



Flexi-soft 
Stay away from rigid, shadow puppet animations as now you have the flexibility to make your shapes bouncy, stretchy and bendable for professional-looking cartoon animations once thought to hard to create. This new feature opens a whole new way of animating, by allowing you to simulate real-world elasticity in one mouse movement.

=====================================================

Well, what about iClone ?


MixMoves is back! - MixMoves 2.0

This handy and powerful feature will soon be back, and it will be better than ever! As not only will you be able to click to blend pre-calculated iMotions, but it will deliver a much faster and smarter response. In addition, we will be adding special mirror motion options to eliminate monotonous motion loops. The new release will come with a free content repack for all previous MixMoves purchase users, as well as new MixMoves motion libraries.

=====================================================

Virtualizing 3DXchange Workflow, and GoZ

In the new release of Character Creator 1.4, users will find that the direct OBJ import/export feature will bring lots of convenience over custom morph designs. 3DXchange will still be essential for converting data by requiring its dedicated user interface for detailed procedures like Characterization and mesh-node clean up, but we will be enabling a direct content I/O for iClone and Character Creator.

To further ease the professional design flow for 3D sculpt paint, GoZ will still be on our list, so users can expect to see the easy morph update, and texture paint first for CC Characters and then for iClone props.

=====================================================

iClone Physically Based Rendering (PBR) - a New Level of Visual Realism

While everyone is talking about real-time PBR technology, we have already been working on this for some time. So feel free and take a peak at the screenshots from our RD lab here, and see how iClone will perfectly align with mainstream PBR tools such as Substance Painter, 3D Coat, SketchFab, Marmoset, and how it will be capable of exporting PBR content for Unity and Unreal engine.



PBR Materials 

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/2f86b02c-5112-4cc5-b320-bd15.png

The precise metallic, roughness definition and enhanced IBL controls over environmental reflection will provide a whole new level of realism for iClone users. Other than PBR, users can expect a big visual leap in the future iClone 7 release.

**Will this be for 2016? Its hard to say right now, but we are excited to share this news with you.

Nice to see PBR and that the 3dCoat Character was used as an example.

F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!! I was excited to see the CTA 3 enhancements, but when I was scrolling down and recognized the upcoming iClone 6 / 7 features it was overwhelming. You guys are crazyBigGrin. Thanks a lot for this sneak peek - 2016 will be great!

Lots and lots of positive and encouraging news in here - the new version of CTA with it's free bone system and "flexi-soft"  looks particularly interesting.

Thank You Realtimer (RL).

There is much here to help revive my interest in RL products which has been seriously waning over the past year. For me, 2015 was certainly the most depressing and unproductive year as a user since I first became a customer with IC2. I think it was JC Weatherby who, some months ago in another thread, described the Icloners situation as being in a kind of “limbo”. How right he was, that`s just how it felt.

Personally I particularly welcome the return of Mix Moves. Maybe sometime in 2016 I will at last be able to start clicking my IC6 desktop Icon with renewed pleasure rather than trepidation and finally consign IC5 to an honourable retirement.

My CTA2 Icon remains unclicked and unloved on my desktop, CTA1 remaining my prefered choice but CTA3 could change that.

I always liked popVideo Converter so pleased to see it has not been forgotten.

Thanks again for sharing such welcomed and wide ranging positive news.

Geoff.

Fantastic! There is a lot to love about all of the above. :-)

CC 1.5 and the custom, cloth, hair & accessories and PBR in iClone are the most exciting to me.
CC 1.4 was a massive leap forward and I am so happy that you are continuing to give the program so much love and consideration.


I am feeling excited and optimistic!
