What I'm missing is plans for further development of the Iray plugin, which has had a good start, but is far from done. I would like it to be kept up with any new developments in Iray, other than with Indigo, which was sort of left languishing at Indigo 3.x.

It's good to see the interfacing to game engines, but don't forget the filmmakers.

EDIT: Also, don't forget improving the native renderer...Rolleyes


+1 and +1 and +1

In the CC3 Roadmap, I added "Sub-surface Scattering (SSS)" as an important feature.

Several "game engines" support some form of SSS, and that should be added to CC3 and the iClone Native Renderer.

Reallusion must continue to care for their native renderer...  Performance improvements... quality improvements... feature enhancements... (Nvidia Hair Works, anyone?)

Hi, nice to read "Kinect" again after a long time.
I like to read more about it, more news please.

Thanks Fred

......... Maybe we need to start an iClone filmmakers support group...Tongue ........
@JOB !!!! How could I have missed this !!!  lol ....... Smile

(Actually, it seems we have a lot on common - I too am a 'Vegas' person [for better or for worse], I guess it's just a workflow I'm *used to*)
You're further along than myself.

A *recent* and refreshing 'resurrection' of VUE software made me realize the incredible *similarities* between iClone and VUE........
I've always been impressed with E-on VUE's take on 'water' ......
By AutoDidact - 5 Months Ago
how does the unreal link works?
and do you need the export version of iclone to use this?


It seems to be in early testing according to Tony(RL)
 so I doubt RL will talk much about
its specifics until it is more finalized.

Here is an example of the  Autodesk Maya Live link to Unreal being
demonstrated by Epic games


By drbernie - 5 Months Ago
Very impressive. Reallusion is a company with vision.

@ Tony (RL): Can you please be more specific about Physics and Human IK?

By mtakerkart - 2 Months Ago
If RL continues with Iclone don't care for me for a new render BUT
-Access to the Plant and trees for custom vegetation
-Better terrain creation
-LOD for object, character (unavoidable for better realtime performance)
-Update Particles for velocity (turbulences,inherit velocity)
By Postfrosch - 5 Months Ago
I'm afraid that everything that has nothing to do with "games" and "gamebases" will be forgotten.
Who is interested in RL even the few oldies who want to make films as before?
The Gamers are the future and bring the money for RL

The roadmap looks impressiv, but for me, as an film maker, there is nothing much to looking forward to. I am a creative person. I write stories, I direct movies, I edit movie for living and I am certainly not a technical geek. So everything with game developement and phyton scripting is way beyond my scale. I am here to use the techniques to make good movies. And I am not alone, I think. So for all those people, who basicially using iClone as a tool to make films, this roadmap may be a kind of disappointment.
What thrills me is the "shared link" to the Unreal engine. I understand this in that way, that I can transfere my scens to Unreal and render with there engine power? If that works, I am happy to use that. On the other hand I suppose we won't see any improvement with the internal renderer anymore ...

It's two sided medal here ...

The focus on the game engine side of things is understandable

The live link to Unreal will be awesome for filmaking
Bravo Reallusion!!!.
By TonyDPrime - 2 Months Ago
In the past 2 weeks-
24 tutorial videos on CTA4.
That is a pretty solid info base for the CTA user base to work from.

And by this random logic, we will also see 24 improvements to iClone visuals!
Great news everyone !!!

Good to hear about the link to Unreal - I hope your Roadmap will not be attacked by the Unrealistic.
By TonyDPrime - 2 Months Ago
I've railed against UE4 as of late because of the hair thing...
AND the fact that the 'good' character renders you see are high quality busts, not in game characters...
because all the in game characters are pretty weak compared to the demos of Super-Mesh-Polygon-Haired Siren people will show as somehow the benchmark of what Unreal can do.  

But let me rail against Marmoset Toolbag....
IT DOESN'T HAVE A NORMAL/BUMP MAP INTENSITY SLIDER.
Can you imagine importing in a model, going to adjust the Normal map intensity, and learning you have to do that in Substance Painter???!!!!! 
What in the name of 3D is going on with these apps these days!
In my day you just adjusted the slider for the Normal map strenth....Like in iClone....
or Octane
Or UE4
Or Unity
Or Blender
Or 3DS Max
Or Maya
Or C4D

But no....Marmoset is special...NO NORMAL MAP SLIDERS.

PS - This is Blender Level stuff right here...to omit a Normal Map strength slider.  Don't anyway DARE defend this.

Also, will Open iClone invite development of access to other render engines? It's good to see the interfacing to game engines, but don't forget the filmmakers...Unsure I know some on the forum don't see the need for it, but I would like ALL user scenarios to be considered.

the same goes to dinamic hairs, its all about shaders . shaders are a important core in realtime enviroment.. 
i used this asset on my matrix animation ... 
this scrip get the objects and transform it on shader is a amazing trick , and fast, i can see the simulations at full 60 fps on viewport with lot of screen space effects on post processing stack
By Kelleytoons - 2 Months Ago
I agree with doing both of these (don't settle for one or the other).
By imaginationseven7 - Last Month
The Roadmap is looking great I been watching Reallusion for the last ten years and it getting better every year I finally purchase iClone 7 Animation Pipeline for video game development maybe 2 years ago and before I was spending anywhere from $800 - $1000 for a model with texture rig and animation now for the last two years maybe $250 for each model or less plus i can add my own unique animation without having to pay artist huge money life saver for a independent developer.

I been watching CC3 and its looking amazing I'm ready to upgrade but I want to get   iClone 8 Animation Pipeline with  iClone 8  3DXchange 8 Pipeline Character Creator 3.
My wish-list for the next reiteration of iclone would be to focus on a cinematic exporter to make a easy transition from iclone to unity for cut scene in game or even build converter the builds the controls in iclone and ports to unity like invector https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/templates/systems/invector-stealth-kill-add-on-135495


The main issue I been having with game development is cloth physics on unity3d i purchase GPU cloth tool
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jhyvihy3_Xw
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHN9PtEc8JI
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SF9eVcVDgA
this asset depreciated so it not sold on asset store anymore plus its doesn't work in 2018 or 2019 but the hair tool still works
Then I purchase OBI cloth physics it great tool it just not working with my iclone or daz3d G8 model but still doing test 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffuH_3DS0Is&t=24s

The last test I been running are the alembic exporter to unity3d still no luck I know it work with Marvelous designer so with a little tweaking to the plugin it may port perfectly like  Marvelous designer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdWa9cFHBcc&feature=youtu.be
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjXA3S2RrJs

My wish list would be to work on a cinematic exporter for unity3d and some type of physics exporter if that alembic or your physics bakes the mesh and gives it a blendshape that give simulation that it has a cloth physics and exports out fbx..

thanks for your time excited to see what new feature Iclone 8 brings to the table

Hello everyone,

Really sorry if I missed something but MOCHA is not at your plan anymore?

Edit : I saw the answer, no more, what a pity. 
By RobertoColombo - 5 Months Ago
Great!

IMO Python API for "Mesh Edit" is a game-changer, if I correctly interpret it as the possibility to transform mesh vertex and faces.
It opens a huge amount of possibilities.

Cheers

By TonyDPrime - 2 Months Ago
RL - Looking at Octane, Unreal, and Toolbag, versus iClone....
Let me simplify how to make material workflow awesome for iClone 8

(1) SSS emulation
(2) Fresnel/Falloff emulation
(3) Specular channel for PBR Metallic material  -keep Specular functioning so that Metallic+Roughness's specular-shine can be increased/decreased, per an independent Specular texture map if desired
(4) Optional Independent Displacement (so that it need not be linked to bump, and can be used together with an independent bump input)
(5) Channel sub-channels - Give each Material channel option for sub channels (ie allow for 2 Blend texture inputs as part of a 'Master Blend', ie allow for 2 Bump sub-channels, say for combo of a 2 Bumps, or Bump+Normal texture) 

Keep same menu style, add more independent texture input channels and sub-channel option for each.  Maybe go Node-based workflow, but not necessary.
(PS - Substance Power Tools does NOT allow you to do any of these things in iClone, natively)
By mtakerkart - 5 Months Ago
Particle effect API means you can control parameters for both iClone particle and PopCorn particle, such as spread, velocity, etc.


Thank you soooo much Tony . Can't wait !!
By Dr. Nemesis - 5 Months Ago
Some of the things I was asking for last year:

Python scripting
Wrinkle maps
Unreal Live Link

The current Python implementation is a good start but I’m looking forward to the coming extended functionality.
Wrinkle maps will be great if I keep the renders in Iclone but if not, Live Link is what I hoped would facilitate my move to Unreal as a render engine.

Thanks, Reallusion, for what I’m hoping will be a great year.

By sonic7 - 5 Months Ago

@Faktengag >>> " .... Hi, nice to read "Kinect" again after a long time .... " <<<
Yes, totally agree! Low budget indie film makers look like getting a new lease on life from their Kinect hardware! That, along with iRay, will offer amazing possibilities for their film's final 'look'. Such film makers will be able to do pretty much everything with ● iClone, ● an editor/compositor ● their imagination. This is really, really great! ... Well done Reallusion!

I’m focusing on film but doing it with a game engine. Film makers would benefit from Unity’s Cinemachine


I'm very curious and would like to know your workflow. I tried both unity and UDK only for particles. I don't know wich kind of movie you make but
mine are with lot of particles more than 4 characters talking with action moves, etc....
My conclusion : because I must to learn UDK or Unity from scratch and because both of them are not build for movie production (try to make dynamic water reacting
with object or animating particles behavior inside sequencer)
It's impossible to produce for a one man band with descent delay.
I'm going back to Iclone and try to find a way for having variable velocity thrue life and Velocity inherit.
For the camera moves in Iclone have a look of this new plugin :


Nothing more for my need. 




This is all new to me, including movie making. It sounds like you have already been down this road and found it to be a dead end. I have yet to discover that. As for my workflow, still trying to figure that out. My pipeline is CC3 - iClone 7 - Unity - DaVinci Resolve 15.

i am a bit dissapointed with roadmap. but important to ppl from comunity undestand. SSS in game engines are a trick with shader programing.  you can see a lot of examples on unreal, unity and toolbag 3 renders. its was what i was talking about on my post. a great need of iclone is get a powerfull shade upgrade, ppl do that with shader programing and selling it on asset store on unity like this one i using on unity ( unity have poor PBR shaders by default like iclone ) just its must be a iclone feature not cc feature , if reallusion put a transmissive slot folowing the substance pbr standard. will be nice so we can create our SSS. i repeat is all about telling stories and stories need nice characters we need close characters and see it dont look like ceramic dools and iray for sure is not a option

 
By TonyDPrime - 2 Months Ago
RL -  
ONE thing that will blast iClone easily up the next level...either:

1a) Take that water plugin"icWater.dll" and expand that into a material-type somehow, giving us realtime reflections...The tech already is built into iClone for surface-to-surface reflections;
or
1b) work the realtime RTX/DXR reflection ability into the realtime renderer.

By animagic - 3 Months Ago
Maybe we need to start an iClone filmmakers support group...Tongue

The convenience of staying within iClone cannot be overstated, at least for the way I work (lots of trial and error...Unsure ). 

What I have changed for my last movie is rendering at 24 FPS (following some of discussions here). I also render without effects (including things like camera shaking, LUT, blur) and delegate that to Vegas.
By eternityblue - 5 Months Ago
Oh please please please get this done soon. It would be great to be able adjust the colors on video channels like we can image textures too, that would be really helpful for Alembic.
Tony (RL) (2/20/2019)
eternityblue (2/15/2019)
i REALLY hope the 'mesh edit' means Alembic import becomes possible. 

Hi eternityblue,

We already have the alembic API but it's an experimental function now, meaning its usage might be changed in the future.


By The-any-Key - 5 Months Ago
Many great things here. As a game developer everything looks very promising.

The VR steam looks very nice if it works well. 

"Live Link" sounds like my next plugin "move with Unity"
But mine is for Unity and only allow record animations from Unity to iClone :-)

iClone 7 Roadmap for 2019

For 2019, Reallusion will refocus more iClone team members toward the development of iClone 8.  In the process, iClone 7 will still see the release of many exciting new features.  For the year ahead, you can look forward to the following activities:
  • More effort will be spent on supporting developers who wish to work with the iClone Python API in a push to extend iClone's native functionalities.
  • Besides adding new professional mocap profiles, popular consumer level mocap devices will also be supported by Motion LIVE 2.0 including Kinect and SteamVR.
  • We will advance our efforts for streamlined game engine pipelines; Especially with the inclusion of Unreal Live Link which allows the Unreal Engine to render live motion from iClone.

Open iClone Ecosystem with New Python APIs and Plugin Marketplace

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/e68aaaf8-79cf-4492-936b-2723.jpg

iClone 7 is evolving into an OPEN program with robust extensibility.  Case in point is the Motion LIVE mocap plugin built with the iClone 7 API which is a prime example of external technological integration with iClone.  Creative developers can now easily augment animation tools and add custom devices to iClone with Python scripting. More>


https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/c38849ab-d98a-48ab-8aee-84ef.jpg

The first version of iClone’s Python API was launched at the end of 2018 and in just one month, we’ve already seen some impressive plugins made by developers.
Check out some interesting samples:

To better support plugin developers, both Plugin Developer Center and the Plugin Marketplace will be ready for developers to upload, share, and even sell their plugins.

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/f1adb10e-661a-4f43-9b0c-6908.jpg

Additionally, more Python APIs will be released for each quarter, such as particle control, render parameters, physics interaction, data in/out and mesh edit. Along with the new APIs releases, more creative applications of the plugins will be made possible.

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/696ef4c1-5b73-4ed2-b510-1f2c.jpg

Moreover, to encourage more outstanding developers to join the iClone OPEN ecosystem, a Plugin Design Contest will be held in 2019. Reallusion will provide a highly competitive reward for the developers who can build the most creative yet practical plug-ins.

Motion LIVE 2.0 with IK Driven Mocap and Animation Trigger

https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/6814d2cf-6f91-4e37-ba72-cecc.jpg

The IK Driven design allows a relatively simple Mocap device, such as Leap Motion, Kinect or SteamVR (VIVE, Oculus hand controllers)  to naturally drive a character’s arms and upper body movements. It can effectively facilitate applications like virtual host, live broadcast, as well as fast animation production.

Stream iClone Animation to Unreal by LIVE LINK

In 2019, real-time connection between iClone and Unreal will become a reality. Via Live Link, iClone will be able to synchronize character motions directly to Unreal for unmatched real-time render quality and cut out the tedious task of manual importing.
https://forum.reallusion.com/uploads/images/6551a202-3537-4003-8d57-580a.jpg



Film Level Facial Animation, Facial Hair, and Face Creation Plugin

Besides the functions mentioned above, 3D characters will be greatly enhanced with muscle detail and animation realism. We will also include facial hair, facial morph with wrinkles, as well as Joint Controlled Morphs (JCM) in iClone. The highly anticipated Photo-to-3D Face Plugin will be part of the plan in 2019. 

Please also check out Character Creator 2019 Roadmap.

Looks to be another exciting year for all of us!

Please stay tuned for more to come! Smile

Hi thedirector1974,

Based on our internal tests so far, we can stream iClone's character animation data into Unreal Engine, but streaming other kinds of data still need be examined further.

The 2019 road map look weak .. However, open python is good start.

Last year's roadmap was more in my interest zone, but I am but one user here.  I know many have wished for Python, so this year will be their year.
I know that there will be many interesting things to come from Python implementations mentioned here, I hope it will be enjoyed by the community.

The live link thing to Unreal sounds interesting, I've seen the Maya to Unreal link videos and I was always like, "why the F does Maya have that and not iClone?!...."
Well, now we will!

I can't really get too caught up in wishing for any major realtime visual enhancements because I know that will come with iC8 in 2020!

Hi animagic,

We'll launch Iray v1.11 next month, but so far don't have other update plans of Iray plugin in 2019.

Render API means we will expose all the Render parameters in the iClone, such as render size, export range, etc.

If all the complaints here about getting stuff from both CC3 and iClone into Unity are to be taken seriously, thanks but no thanks.  Unless we have a TRANSPARENT solution (i.e. export from iClone the entire scene and it will render in Unity) then a whole lot of us will remain forever in iClone's universe (and thus hope RL doesn't forget about folks who aren't interested in game engines).

By AutoDidact - 5 Months Ago
At any rate you can see that users of a Live link to unreal will not be insulated
from having to learn into use the Unreal engine interface & tools.

Which means leaving the comfort bubble of Iclone.


Just as those of us exporting to external programs had to learn how to use 
our  external applications.

That Live-Link thing looks very cool, did you notice the out-of-sync frame rate for the transferred animation and the rag-doll physics going on, I wonder if it will 'import' a motion verbatim, framerate and all, or if it will try to incorporate the motion in at whatever framerate there is going on. 
Or, maybe the choppiness of the avatar with the weapon was due to the data streaming from another outside source.

Very impressive. Reallusion is a company with vision.

@ Tony (RL): Can you please be more specific about Physics and Human IK?



Hi drbernie,

Human IK - we will allow you controlling all the parameters in the Edit Motion Layer, such as IK effector and reach target.

Physics - similar to Human IK, all the physics parameters can be controlled.
