-iClone8 will convert FBX files to rlMotion, which is what I want to do
-Cartoon Animator 5 will allow me to import rlMotion files as 3D animations, which is the end goal, im just trying to use mocap files I generate for a project and it seems like this is my stumbling block
-I specifically wanted to use a different program to create custom FBX animations, the intent it to use those for a project in Cartoon Animator 5
-I do not need iClone8 for any other reason and cannot rationalize spending the money on the purchase
-I read that Character Creator 4 will allow users to import a FBX animation to apply it to models in that program, and that it converts them... im not entirely sure but I would assume its the same rlMotion format, which is what im trying to ask for confirmation of here.

Im also open to literally any other possible avenue I could look at to convert FBX, GLB, or BVH files into rlMotion type files that im not considering here.
Guide im basing this info off:
https://manual.reallusion.com/Cartoon-Animator/Content/Resources/4.4/08_Animation/Using-3D-Motions/Getting-3D-Motions.htm
" you can apply any rlMotion from iClone Motion Library "

Hi...

Character Creator 4 will allow you to import animations in FBX format and then save them as rlMotion files. These can then be used with Cartoon Animator 5.

However, it's important to note that CC4 doesn't have a timeline so you can't edit the animations once imported. The animation will need to be as you want it before importing the FBX and saving it to .rlMotion. If you need to be able to edit the animation in any way after import then you will need to have iClone 8 to do this.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I figured it did the conversion but I didn't want to spend that kind of money to be wrong.

I appreciate it, I'll have to think on this longer to make my decision but I have the info I need now.

Cheers
