Thanks for your reply Peter.
So I don't need the teeth?
If not why does it say that it is an essential part of the package and you need it?
Just don't want to buy all that content and find that I can't use it.
Thanks again.

Hello Team

I am very new to the site and animation too. I looked at the packs available for 2D animation. The bundle says CC4 Pipeline and Pro. I want to buy Pipeline. 
Below is available only with bundle Pro.
G3 Human - Vector Buddies Character Assembly System

and this is available with the pipeline.
360 Head Tools

Does it mean pipeline will have vector buddies available and don't need to buy? Or should I buy them separately if I want it?

Also; what is the resource bundle (free) that is downloaded as a promotion. What is in them?

Let me know please.

Being totally new to this I need advice.  I wish to purchase a bundle "CC Essential Morphs & Skin for CC3" but am told that you need to have "Vampire Teeth" which is an Essential Morth and is not available to buy with cash.  You have to pay in DA points.
So I bought 1,000 points, and when I click on the Vampire Teeth it says it's not available for purchase.  Or less I am wrong, it means that I can not then buy the bundle as the teeth are a requirement.  Is this right?  As I've said, I'm completely new to this
site, and need advice.

I'm confused. Am I right in thinking after paying $199 for character creator I'll have to pay more to use them In a game engine and sell the game? So the $199 is just a one off payment just to own a copy of the program?



You don't have to pay extra to use the characters you create in a game. If you create a character using the default content that comes with Character Creator 3 Pipeline then there are no additional charges to put that character in a commercial game. However if your character uses content purchased from the Content Store, such as additional clothing, hair or accessories then you will need to purchase the export license version of the content pack to be able to export.

Ok thank you for the reply. So I can import characters and accessories I make on blender and use in character creator as long as I don't use the store?I take it character creator works offline?

Regarding the content store in general, I'd like to see an addition:
When you view an item (or perhaps when you go to purchase an item) I would like the store to remind me if I've already purchased that item.
Perhaps with a  message stating "You have already purchased this item."
This would avoid a trip to "My Orders" and doing a search for unsure items, or double-purchasing an item.

If this post is in the wrong forum, perhaps a forum leader could move it to the right place.

Thanks.

Hi,
I am a newbie and I want to buy complete 3D Character Design and Animation Bundle (990 $) . I will also use Face Motion Capture and I have few questions regarding that:
1. What other Plugins do I need for that. Do I have to buy Motion Live Plug- in (100 $) plus Facial Mocap Profile (399 $)or just Motion Live plugin and install free Live face from App store to connect it to the I phone?
2. What version of IPhone do I need. Is it IPhone X  and above?
3. If I decide to use a PC Camera what extra do I need beside 3D Character Design and Animation Bundle. Do I have to buy this Faceware Mocap Profile(1.590 $)?
4. What about creating a men's hair in Character Creator? I see that it is possible with Headshot - auto option, but the quality of the hair is very bad. Any other suggestions on creating and adjusting the hair?

If you buy either of the packs I supplied links for, these will install and be fully usable from the get go.

Can you post a link to where it says you need these particular teeth to be able to use the CC Essentials. Thanks.

Hi...

Thank you for the feedback. We do plan to add a mechanism at checkout that will warn you if you have purchased the content before. It may take a little time to implement but it is on the way. Smile

Hi...

Both the "G3 Human - Vector Buddies" and "360 Head Tools" are content packs that can be purchased separately or as part of a bundle with Cartoon Animator 4. So if you purchase the Pipeline version you will get the "360 Head Tools" as part of the bundle. If you also wish to have the G3 Human - Vector Buddies then this will require separate purchase.

The Resource Pack includes a number of additional content items for CTA4 to help you get started and also includes some older content that came with earlier versions like G2 characters.

Hi,
I am totally new to iClone and Character Creator. I just bought the software two days ago. 
Just a question. 
If an item/asset is tagged as FREE or the price is 0 in Reallusion Content Store or Reallusion Marketplace, does it mean, it's ROYALTY FREE.
I'm just a little confused because some other sites I used before require Attribution when an item is for FREE Download.
Thank you in advance.

Hi

Many thanks for your reply.  I am on free trail now. It only has G3 characters even though i installed the resource packs. 

Do we have G4? In the future, if you release G5, G6. will they be automatically updated?

You can import your own clothing, hair and accessories into Character Creator 3 Pipeline but not custom characters. 

CC3 will allow you to send the existing base mesh to other software where you can create new morphs but you can't just import custom characters you have created yourself in other software.

Hi , i am brand spankin new to this as well. So if i buy something from the content store , how do i get it into CC3 pipeline ? And will it show up in the outliner under the " custom" side? Also can i import my own FBX armors and clothes from a file or Unreal 4? Or is that not possible ?


Hi...

When you purchase any content from the Content Store it will appear in "Smart Gallery" within Character Creator 3. You just then need to double click the thumbnail to install it. Once installed it will show up under the Template tab of Content Manager. Any content you import and save yourself will appear under the Custom tab of Content Manager.

Note: There is also a download link for any Content Store purchases on the Order History page of your Reallusion Account.

The CC Essential Complete Bundle can be purchased from the link below. I'd recommend the complete bundle which includes the essential clothing as well. You don't need anything else to purchase this bundle.

https://www.reallusion.com/ContentStore/Character-Creator/Pack/CC_Essential_Complete_Bundle/default.html

If you do just want the "Morphs & Skin" then this can be purchased below. Again you don't need anything else to be able to use this pack.

G2 characters do come with the full version. You can see them in the image below.

There are currently no G4 characters. The latest character types in CTA4 are the G3 360 characters. These are standard G3 character bodies with the new 360 heads.

Normally new generations of characters come with major upgrades and are not backwards compatible. So for example, if a G5 character was introduced for Cartoon Animator 5 these characters would not be compatible with version 4 or earlier. However, you can always load older generations of characters such as G1, G2 and G3.

There is an add posted that says when we buy points we can get 500 points for free (see ad):   https://www.reallusion.com/event/20-celebration/includes/images/20th-Anniversary-landing-banner-1920x350.jpg?20201110
I'm quite interested in that and I've purchased points directly from the link from this ad, and I've also purchased content with the points andwithout them. Still no free points. How do i obtain them?

I still have purchases I would like to make and they extra points would come in handy.
