Hi, I'm Antwon. I'm about to buy iClone 7 with 3dx change now, but I see 2 versions and I don't know what to get, I'm confused by the pipeline version which is over $500+. What I need is to use iClone for animations, because I mainly use Daz 3d as work flow. Can I import characters from daz to 3dx change  animate in iClone and export back into daz studio to continue my project? Or I'm forced to buy pipeline to do this? I'm not to clear what pipeline is for. Please help me before I make a bad purchase please.. Thanks so much.... All help is highly appreciated.
iClone 7 PRO Bundle or iClone 7 Animation Pipeline

Antwon.

The Pipeline is needed if you want exported out from the iClone World 
eg. in an another Program like Blender , Mayer , Unity . .... . But Beware DAZ Studio is the only Programm that do not import FBX properly . It is cripple . it's an old problem with DAZ Studio and the developer won't  fix this. Maybe to keep DAZ Studio exclusive for your own marked

You can compare the versions here: https://www.reallusion.com/iclone/download.html#package-and-pricing

The main difference is:
Pipeline can import your models. You can change and animate them in iClone. And the export the animated models (as FBX, ABC...) back to another software ex Daz(got FBX import issues)/Unity/Blender...
Pro can import your models. You can change and animate them in iClone. But you can only export OBJ without animations.

So you need the pipleline version to do what you want.



iClone 7, 3DXchange 7 Pipeline, CC3 Pipeline, CT8 Pipeline, Iray, Live Face, iPhone Xr, Win 10, i9 9900K ~5GHz, Nvidia RTX 2080 8GB, 16GB Ram, M.2 SSD

Hi Antwon
Indeed you need  the pipeline version however you need not worry about re-importing any FBX figurs back into Daz studio as pipeline will export perfect BVH  motion files for the genesis figures for use in Daz studio.
In Fact you will not even have to bother importing the 
Genesis Figure into Iclone only into 3DX and convert to non standard to accept Imotion from your realtime Iclone Avatar.
As you plan on using Daz studio as your final render 
destination, and Not Iclone, Do not bother with the Character creator 3 program either as you wont need  to have your daz figures rendering in Iclone.
This video shows Motion retargeting workflow to create 
custom Iclone animated BVH for export to Daz studio.
