Just did some experiments with CC hair in G5 characters chuck and Gwynn. Also tried it with G3 character Dylan but they wouldn't load onto him due to version difference.
I loaded the G5 characters from my iClone5 contents so they are definitely G5 and not the verified ones from iClone6
I have loaded 2 of my CC hairs and 2 of Reallusions CC hairs and they load. Also animated G5 with my latest dreadlock LongNThick and it flowed although it did flow a lot more that when it's on a CC character.
Also its a bit variable whether the CC hair will load onto the G5 character or not. I highlighted the 3 that fails to load onto the G5 character. All 3 are mine so I'm thinking maybe there is a variable on how I made them? Although I just have no idea what the variable might be, they are all made the same except for the style so ???????
I will be checking that out
Here is what I did to use them on other characters. Its just one way of doing it. Using export from CC as OBJ and loading it into 3DXchange and saving it as a prop. Loading it into iClone and attaching to a characters head, positioning and scaling it to fit and then saving the hair as an attachment will give you more character types you can add it to that this method
Anyway here is what I did. Just be aware this way definitely wont work for any character.
1) Load the CC hair onto a character in CC
2) Click the export iAvatar button and it saves the character and hair as an avatar in iClones Custom/Avatar folder
3) In iClone load that character, select the hair then goto Custom/Avatar/BodyPart/CCHair and click the + button to save the hair
You can see all of that on the left side of the image
4) Now you can load another character and drag and drop the hair onto the character to add it
5) If it loads then ….done
I'm going to try more of reallusion's CC hairs and other peoples CC hairs to see if any of those fail to load onto a G5 character
