Hello,
I just got a proposal to do a short video. My excitement quickly died because majority of the characters in the script are animal characters will need to have facial animations.
I have checked the iclone content store but could not find animals that have facial blends/bones. The Toon Animal characters in the content store cannot fill in the space because they are humanoid.
Please is there any way out. I want a CAT, MOUSE, GIRAFFE, and VULTURE that have facial emotions. Any suggestion is very welcome as it is very urgent.

Hello there,

Have you looked at any of the "Toon Animal" packs for iclone.  The animals have all the configurations for lip-synching and motions.
I hope this will help you out!

He doesn't want "humanoid" animals (by which I assume he means he needs them to be four-legged, not standing up in biped positions).  Nothing in the marketplace would work.

If you have 3dXchange you could send out the base character in obj format and take it into any 3d modelling software where you could create your morph targets for it.
Here is a very short clip I did using Mudbox to create the morphs.
Hope this might give you some idea of what you could try.

"Simply use humanoid motions that mimick animal and fowl behavior."
Doesn't the marketplace have these motions?
I do. Smile

To give humanoid skeletons.... animal or fowl behavior..
Re-Target the animation from animal to human.
Blender is free.

The Toon Animal Characters are good but they have human bones structure. I want animals that walk on four legs (CAT, GIRAFFE, etc) and can talk. Something similar to the characters in Jungle Book . Thank you for wishing me well.
