Set Clip Speed

Clip Speed for iC7.9 is now shown in percentages (100.00%) rather than magnitude (x1.00). This makes it easier to distinguish and adjust the clip speed.
emphasize the precision, and how easy to resume to the original speed.




Right-click on track and select Set Clip Speed to open a dialog window.
You can input either the speed in percentages or duration in the desired number of frames (the two inputs will effect each-other).

Changing the Clip Speed will also adjust the number of frames for the said clip.

Face Key - Search bar
The search bar provides instantaneous search functionality for morph sliders containing specific key words.

Where to store and remove Vertex Animation
The Soft Cloth track in iClone 7.9 has been renamed to "Vertex Animation" and is visible even when Active Physics is turned off.
This track will house Alembic vertex data and baked soft cloth physics.



Two ways to remove vertex animation
Vertex animation can now be removed from props and avatars via the right-click context menu - Remove Vertex Animation for props and Remove All Vertex Animation for avatars.
This operation was not very convenient prior to iClone 7.9.

Realtime Color Picker

All color pickers in iC7.9 will affect the view-port in real-time, letting one preview the results quickly.

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/71a83503-5adf-4e91-9135-9c44.gif

Adjusting the color will only effect the real-time view-port and are not reflective the final settings. It is always possible to revert to the original color by pressing the Cancel button.

  • More natural hair for Lewis:
    Meet Lewis, our new black male character for the 7.9 update. We reduced the details of Lewis' hair in order to improve system performance. If you feel that your system can handle the extra details, then follow the steps below to bring back Lewis' glorious Afro!
    • Step 1 - Select the hair and turn on Subdivisions.


    • Step 2 -select “Top_Front” “Sides_Back” to the tessellation section and increase Multiplier to 1.


      The saw-tooth hair compared to the enhanced Afro (more body and details).
