Thanks for the info Wendy… I will have to do some reading over at Reallussion as I don’t like the sound of the hybrid model option much at all as Genesis makes such pretty faces!! I can live without dialogue but I want blinking and smiling and breathing etc to at least make things look semi real.
I have a clip I am nearly finished that I will probably post somewhere despite it being very basic… it shows Genesis in iClone and what a total beginer with iClone can do after just a few days playing with it… and besides it looks very pretty the way I have set it up… but I need to find some different music if i want to put it on somewhere like YouTube… that’s a pity though as it works so well with REM lol.
there is definitely a lot to like about iClone and once I learn a bit more I am sure I will be able to do some very cool stuff…. definitely lots of surreal ambient stuff that will look amazing…. I just want to make my genesis close her eyes a little and have a tear roll down her cheek and to look like she is breathing and then this would be amazing.
Anyway enough from me… even though I had some hassles and there are some major limitations I think it will end up being a well spent $500 as the potential for fun and creativity is huge.
DAZ are partnering with iClone now so maybe we can get a dedicated iClone forum as I would love to find out about things like animating DAZ hair in iClone and using DS Dynamic clothes and once I start playing with the MoCap I would love to be creating some pose sets and bringing them into DS…. hmmm and I do need to find out more about how you create content like clothes and custom figures for the native iClone models.
So much to play with and so few spare hours these days.
Thanks again for your info Wendy and also for initially piquing my interest in iClone.
I hope people tell you that your enthusiasm and your creativity rock!
