Dear Reallusion Developers,

We are excited to introduce to you the brand new, redesigned Marketplace!  Throughout the previous year, the Reallusion team has surveyed, planned, and implemented tons of new features to unify enhanced visuals with a much-improved user experience in both the Marketplace and Content Store, while simultaneously fine tuning the shopping experience.  We truly hope that this new design will be helpful in better displaying and selling your assets, as well as resolving common issues encountered by customers.  We understand there is always more room for improvement, so please be assured that your continued feedback is important to us. 

The main changes to the Marketplace are provided below. If you have further questions or recommendations, please feel free to leave a comment below, or contact us at developer@reallusion.com.


Quality Display & Upgraded Functionality

Search
Easier to find specific assets via category browsing and keyword searching.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/9ca8059f-5aef-4d8b-a642-1d7c.png

Index
Utilizing “Filters” to further specify desired results and optimize search quality (sub-category, top authors, free, trial, pack or item, etc).
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/7ec4f8e1-28c4-48e6-a974-c926.png

Product Page
Intuitive desired features such as Add to Wish List, Trial Download, Buy.

Category Re-organization & Browsing Mechanism Enhancement
  1. New entry for Character Creator to fulfill the needs of growing a market.
    https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/bdad8e10-ef31-465a-b742-4159.png

  2. CC Character is now the standard character base for iClone users. To help existing users and new users to easily find compatible character assets, iClone G1,2,3,5,6-related assets are gathered into a Legacy Actor category.
    https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/9450d027-831b-4a28-9ffa-3628.png

  3. Several categories are re-organized to enhance efficiency for browsing and searching. For example,
    • iClone > Character > Standard Human > CC Character” is changed to “iClone > Actor > Character > Male, Female, Fantasy, …” for deep down searching.
    • Character Creator > Character > Cloth > Underwear, Skirts, …” is changed to “Character Creator > Cloth > Underwear, Skirts, … > Fantasy, Historical, Medieval, ...” for deep down searching.
    • New category for CTA Non-Human Actorand Motion.
      *Please find the details from this link.
  4. Since some CC content assets such as Cloth, Shoes, Gloves, Accessory, and Hair can be applied to iClone, the system will automatically display compatible items from the following CC categories in corresponding iClone categories. 
    • Management Backend
      https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/6653010f-3fa2-4923-8112-ed08.png

    • iClone - Index
      https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/771b215e-371d-46e9-9334-52c9.png
      • The assets of “Character Creator > Outfit” are also displayed in “iClone > Outfit
      • The assets of “Character Creator > Accessory” are also displayed in “iClone > Accessory” 
      • The assets of “Character Creator > Hair” are also displayed in “iClone > Hair” 

Trial Download for Packs Enabled

In the new Marketplace design, developers can enable up to 10 items per pack for trial download, and users are allowed to download 10 items and 3 packs per day.
  • Backend Setting

  • Product Page

  • Trial Download List
    https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/db3ae4f7-105a-45e1-817b-2c2b.png


Content Uploading & Commercialization

  1. From Uploader v1.55, commercialization materials are no longer required when uploading content, Developers can do further editing in the Management Backend of the Marketplace.
  2. To satisfy different needs, the image size of Preview Images is not fixed to 1920x1080 anymore. Any image with its width less than 1920 px, and length less than 1080px is acceptable.
  3. Since there will be some overlay on the Thumbnail, please don’t not put any words on the image. In addition, the GIF file format is no longer supported for thumbnails in order to provide a more consistent display. Please use preview images or videos to showcase your product.
    https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/c86ea573-0197-4fb3-9557-4aca.png

  4. The current AP is unable to generate 512*650 sized Thumbnails.  Here are some tips to make thumbnail creation easier:
    1. The content generated from iClone 7.2, CC 2.3, CTA 3.2 will have 512*512 build-in thumbnail.
    2. When uploading content to Marketplace via Uploader, the Uploader will automatically convert the 512*512 thumbnail to be 512*650 with transparent border on top and bottom.
    3. The default background of Marketplace of iClone & CC is gray (#333333), and the background of CTA is white (#ffffff).
    4. If the thumbnail meets the default background color of Marketplace, the display will look good.

Notification

In the past, when a new message of Product Q&A, Message Board and Private Message arrived, system notifications would be sent via Email. The new Marketplace implements a Notification mechanism to let Developers and Users check messages directly in the Marketplace, which further enhances communication quality.

  • Tick the checkbox in front of the thumbnails of products you want to download
  • Press the "Download Selected" button

Still can't seem to see a filter to remove items I have already bought.  Which is disappointing, for such an easy win.

It's been several years without any updates, so there were some many things to be improved. Sad
This feature is under evaluation now.

Thanks for the update.  At least it is being evaluated.

Aside, what is the procedure for getting items in the marketplace added to the content store.  Some of big boss' items haven't made it into the content store after many months of being in the marketplace.

I am trying download my own content. My Inventory List is showing blank. But if I add my own content to the cart, it says I already have this in my Inventory List. Please help, a customer is having issues with one of my items and I can't help them because I can't download my own content.

Hi Lord Ashes,

I just updated the main post of this thread yesterday:  The function of downloading uploaded products is moved from Inventory List to Management Backend.
  • Go to Content Editing > Edit Item / Edit Pack
  • Tick the checkbox in front of the thumbnails of products you want to download
  • Press the "Download Selected" button

When a certain theme promotion is planned in Content Store, we will select some related content assets there.
Most item-based products stay in Marketplace.

Market place is a improvement but RL need to work on the main webpages for the store. Numerous products you click on and they dont take you to the product but instead another page. The whole shopping experience is frustrating and leads me to spend my money else where. Who ever you paid to design and implement the shopping experience has done a bad job its a frustrating mess often very slow as well . Also quality control is still bad way to many outdated items for sale.Take a look at unreal market place for a straight forward customer focused shopping experience.

Hi, 
Thanks for sharing your experience with us!
The URL direction was not set up correctly until yesterday, was it the reason you pointed out the problem in main webpages? Can you help to double check it again?

I do understand that there is always room for improvement, but I would like to take this chance to introduce the position & spirit of Marketplace.
Marketplace is a C2C platform, developers are free to upload their products without the need to wait for approvals from Reallusion.
Unreal, Unity, Daz and other assets stores are not the case.
Marketplace offers every content developers fair chance to sell their products with least control by us. All we do is selecting some outstanding products as Reallusion Certified, and users can use serveral filters to narrow down a selection.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/619f64ad-61a9-4bd1-a81a-e24c.png

Based on your experience in Unreal, I believe that Content Store can satisfy your needs. Smile
