Hi everyone,

I am attempting to create a G3 character. I was able to get a front character to work and now I would like to use the same character for the side motions. How do I accomplish this? Do I need a new image file? Does anyone have any tips on how to transform a front image character to use for the side/angled portion of g3 characters?

Hope to get some help here, desperateSmile

Cheers,

Brooke

HI, It seems like you will need to prepare two characters and switch to another character while on the other side in your case.

You can refer to demo project: 02_G3 Human.
You could see how the demo changed front character to side character at frames 218.

I hope this information could help you!

The online CTA3 manual is probably the place to look for an answer. [HERE]

Hi guys, thanks for the responses! I know I need two different versions of the character. I have created a front custom character and my question is how do I transform this custom character so I can use it sideways with cta? Can I do it within cta or do I need to use an external tool like photoshop or illustrator? Does anyone know an easy way to change the angle of a front G3 character so it can be used with CTA g3 elastic motion (side)?

Thanks again,

Brooke

Hi brookelustig,

The G3 character is not multiple angles character, thus you must be created side portion of G3 character with external editing.
You can get more information about in online manual:
http://manual.reallusion.com/CrazyTalk_Animator_3/ENU/Pipeline/Default.htm#Resources/CTA3/03_Actor/Character_Types/G3_Character.htm%3FTocPath%3DCharacter%2520Types%2520(New)%7C_____3

But you can design G2 character via Animate CC, the G2 character is multiple angles character so that you can easier to change the angle of character in CTA3.
