Good job on this update Reallusion. I have been using 3ds Max, a bit of Daz Studio, and one or two other applications for character animation over the years and for some reason iClone never appealed to me. Well that has changed. I just purchased IClone 7 and 3DXchange Pipeline about a week ago and now with this great update I'm really impressed. I initially had some confusion and "end user" issues but they where mostly minor or my own fault Wink
I do believe I will recommend iClone to my students!
Thumbs up guys.

while I haven't spent much time on the curve editor  the little bit I played with was very nice. I instantly saw a big improvement in the animation system. I'd have to get into one of my hours long keyframing session to dig deep for stability.....but so far so good, the animations are no doubt smoother and less robotic!

This was a very big deal to me, as I'm sure you know very well from my many years of ranting about it every chance I could get! lol, and it seems to have paid off, ...

Thank you.Kiss

Just incase reallusion peeps read this thread, I should say this update has been fantastic. So many of Iclone's weak spots addressed in one single update. I don't know what's going on over there but Iclone 7 as a whole has been just great.

I wish I could figure out the Motion Setting, Align To Actor, because I think it would solve the problem I have putting motion clips together. But, however I try it, it doesn't seem to ever get rid of the sudden change in orientation or jerky transition to the next clip. I really wish I could find a clear tutorial on this.

Here's a video I did on it during testing. Note that it is indeed no longer "in testing" as I say in the video.


It does need all 3 animation options checked to work.

I didn't buy the pipeline version of 3dxchange, because I never used it for the previous version of Iclone.
Not a game developer so mostly I import to Iclone. for video work.

I noticed I don't have to buy the pipeline 3xchange (as I thought I would ) to acquire the curve editor plugin...

I wouild enjoy to read some reviews.
Not interested to acquire the plug in and realize it is just a more cumbersome way to make things easier.

@rampart -  trust me you want this -  I'm not one to give praise on something i don't really like....they did a great job on it. This is not only good for character animation,  but how smoothly you control the camera.     This is exactly what I've been wanting since Iclone 3.  I finally feel like i got what I've been asking for all these years.

I'm glad the curve editor is finally here but ironically thanks to the new preset curves Reallusion has provided, the curve editor is no longer as necessary as it was pre 7.1. Now thanks to the default curve preset, smooth camera control is effortless and doesn't require a curve editor as it would have only 2 weeks ago.

Considering the cost of the curve editor, I think these new presets were a great move. The curve editor can now be reserved for complex motions, not for what should be simple movements.

yeah,  complex motions for me,  i really enjoy the keyframing aspect of animation the most -  I called up a few projects of custom motions,  and I was able to see instantly all the spots I wanted to fix -  i'm sure reallusion would have appreciated the smile that I had when i saw that!  They did good by me!! 

and this isn't some promo,  i really mean this,  everyone knows i made a big deal about it!! lol

In fact,  I'll admit that I pushed hard for it,  so I thought it was my duty to say thank you and point it out.  I'm not ungrateful -  not saying anyone else is,  but they listened to me because this is exactly what i wanted!  Must give credit where credit is due....Iclone is now a big deal to me!
