Hi iClone Users,

For iClone 8, we strove to keep strengthening the core values of character animation with Motion Director game-play controls and powerful editing capabilities, such as animation layer editing, bi-directional blending, reach target offset for interactive motion, end effector editing, and more. With the latest innovative update, iClone 8 makes it easy to create animation in an enjoyable and productive manner. 

Besides providing a smooth pipeline to mainstream animation and game engines, iClone real-time render has been enhanced. iClone 8 also can connect to NVIDIA Omniverse – a RTX GPU based path-traced render engine, which supports USD (Universal Scene Description) data architecture for collaborative design projects. With it, users will be able to generate commercial-quality visuals directly from iClone 8.

You can check the 3D Character Creation & Animation webpage for more information about presale orders, feature comparison, and FAQs.



The following are the new features revealed in the Part One of Work-in-Progress Preview: 
  • Motion Director – Play to Animate
  • Motion-based Innovations
  • Enhanced Real-time Visuals
  • Performance & Productivity
  • Real-time / Path-Traced Render with NVIDIA Omniverse
You can check this article for a new feature highlight.

If you are interested in diving deep into the details, you can refer to this document.

All these new features looks so impressive! I'm very excited to try. It looks very easy to use, and the new way to animate with a controler or keyboard like a video game is just awesome! 
I wonder if we can do that only on the ground, or on every 3D props, if there is physics...etc. 

I love also the fact we can now lock feet or hands more naturally to an object or a character. This is what I wanted so much because the result was not perfect with "Reach to" and limited. 

Thanks for the preview and also the hard work from the team to make us a perfect tool to create our dreams w00t 
I can't wait to watch the part 2!

The improvements in animation look very promising. The random character movements in an area plus follow will make crowd creation simpler.

I am curious what the actual upgrade price will be, if you can get it for $799 in content purchases. It's kind of a chicken or the egg situation, as I might want different content once I get IClone 8 and found out more about it. I guess you could always buy marketplace points and use them later.

I wish we could beta test early previews.

Spring 2022 is so far off!

Very promising update for both iClone and CC. The animations tools seem very easy to use. But I’m surprised by the regular upgrade price for existing iClone 7 and CC 3 users : $599 for iClone and CC4 and $699 for new users. Only %100 off and a price which looks more for professionals only users. By the way, we don’t know if users of actual plugins will also a have to pay for upgrade their plugins too like Headshot, SkinGen, PopCorn, etc

What are the prices of iClone 8 and Character Creator 4? 

ProductPre-sale CampaignRegular PriceUpgrade Price
CC4Spend $399+, Get CC4 for Free$299$249
iC8Spend $699+, Get iC8 for Free$599$499
CC4 + iC8Spend $799+, Get CC4+iC8 for Free$699$599

I hope there will be an «  early bird » discount at the release of the versions in Spring 2022.

Keep up the good work Reallusion team !

Why is spring 2022 not a distant date? I was thinking that we can reach iclon 8 in january 2022, can you move the date earlier? I don't know how we can wait patiently after seeing so many features. It's really sad that it's a long date, can you listen to the expectations of users and new buyers on this subject? please

This looks to be another feature filled upgrade. CoolSmooooth

Spring 2022 should give the Development team enough time to perfect the features. Smile

A rushed release is not going to do any good. There are a lot of new features and rigorous testing is essential.

Every software developer knows that you can't just bring a schedule forward. Be grateful that there is a preview.
