The heavy and complicated process of manufacturing 3D human characters (including appearance, skin, clothing, hairstyles, accessories, and other human factors) for real-time animation in the past might always lets you have no clue. This time, we’d better turn to some automation tools that can classify so many elements and details of creating characters. With them, you can finish your work by just drag & drop of mouse and preview it in real time, thus it is convenient for you to efficiently make a role.

Character Creator is a free yet professional, unlimited and fully-rigged 3D character creation add-on tool for iClone, developed by Reallusion from Taiwan. As a 3D character modeling software, it comes with many unique functions such as free styles, shape morphs, customizable high-resolution skin textures, and dynamic clothing design. Plus, it is so simple to use and easy to get started with. These no doubt will be very good for both professional and non-professional users who are engaged in game design, animation design, and so on industries to easily create realistic 3D human models with realistic looking, which are animation-ready for use with iClone and other 3D tools.

In a word, with this powerful and popular 3D character designer (please note that this is an add-on for iClone) in hand, game developers can now get the best productivity from it, including using the custom design feature to create your own unique assets, and using it to export your characters along with outfits to other popular 3D applications, such as Unreal Engine, Unity, Maya, and so on.
