Cartoon Animator 4 - 360 Head Creator





Dear All

This WIP 2 shows how Reallusion breaks through the limitations of 2D Art, and delivers a practical way for 2D animators to create characters with advanced animation along with vivid expressions. The 360 evolution streamlines the workflow for Head Creation, Expression Setup, and directly to the animation core with face key editing, puppeteering and the timeline system. Apart from introducing a set of 360 assets and new professional animation library, users also have the path to convert existing content into 360 heads with a full range of motion. 


With the new feature "360 Head Creator" of Cartoon Animator 4, you can easily turn a 2D art into a 3D animation.
Find out what "Smart IK" can do.

Cartoon Animator 4 - Smart IK


This WIP 1 demonstrates how Reallusion made 2D Character Animation more precise, powerful, yet more intuitive. Say goodbye to foot sliding, sinking or floating problems, the new Smart IK/FK system not only switches automatically, it makes creating amazing cartoon animation so much easier. Posing with locking end effectors gives you power to precisely animate characters with scene interaction. In addition, you can perfectly adapt motion files with different body shapes from our motion library, even fine-tune the character's stride or alter its motion genre. 



Know More About Cartoon Animator 4

With the new feature "Smart IK" of Cartoon Animator 4, you can do IK/FK animation without actually learning the complex concept and it takes only 1/4 of the time what other animation software needed.
Find out what "Smart IK" can do.
  • Smart IK (Inverse Kinematic)
    • Easy IK Editing: No more foot sliding, sinking, or floating problems. Easy-locking feet and hands for unlimited motion possibilities.

    • Intuitive Auto IK/FK Switch: Drag-and-move end effectors for IK editing, directly rotate joins for FK editing. Other animation software may take hours to do this, Cartoon Animator needs only end effector on/off clicks.

    •  Stretch Animation: Enable animation creation with more diversity by freely extend any character’s end segments - head, hands and feet.

    • Precise Scene and Prop Interaction: Works for all kind of motion behavior. Lock hands and feet to precisely interact with scene objects.

    • Works with All Kinds of Cartoon Characters: Correct backward knee bend animation for quadruped animals.

  • Smart Motion Retargeting
    • Adapt Motions to any Character Scale: Works with all Template-based Motion - human biped, quadruped, wings, spine bone.

    • Creative IK Motion Varieties: Auto-align character bones to the Motion Data pose, regardless of the character’s initial pose setting.

  • Create IK Rig
    • Auto IK Rig: Imported Photoshop Template Characters will have IK rig automatically to save creation time. Still, you have the freedom to add IK locks to selected bone segments.

    • Custom GUI: Snapshot a character with a custom pose to create a Character Rig GUI.



Let me show you what Reallusion team had created with this new feature.

More one step to become number 1 :
Please add other languages, as french, spanish...
Or at least, language string resource in separate file. So third people can translate for you.

It talks about the ability to interface with PhotoShop.

Does it need to be PhotoShop, or will GIMP work too?

It's still early days and not yet confirmed, but like CTA3 you will likely just need an image editor compatible with PSD files and layers.

Unfortunately there has to be a start date and there will always be some customers who purchase just before a new promotion starts.

However if you have any concerns, please contact Customer Support and they will be able to help you with any questions about eligibility for this pre-order promotion.

Note: Any content you purchase will still be usable in Cartoon Animator 4.

This is a pre-order promotion aimed primarily at new customers. 

Existing CTA users can either buy the required amount of content to get a free copy of Cartoon Animator 4, or can just upgrade in the normal way once CTA4 is released.
