Reallusion iClone Editor's Review

Nowadays, there is no scarcity of 3D animation and modeling software in market. However, not all such apps are user friendly and easy on wallet. If you want an intuitive and capable tool for making 3D animations without requiring much time, give Reallusion iClone Pro a shot. The company is known more for its app CrazyTalk. The new version comes with a lot of visual enhancements, physics and animation tweaks.

To run the app, you will need a moderately powerful PC but its resource requirements are not very steep, by present hardware standards. A PC equipped with 2 GHz CPU, 1 GB memory and separate GPU will be able to run this app. Naturally, you will get smoother performance when more RAM is installed. The PC needs to be equipped with Windows XP or later editions and both 64 and 32 bit versions are supported. Before, licensing, you can use iClone Pro in trial mode. The app is quite stable.

Reallusion iClone Pro does not come with a steep learning curve and billions of features that you get in mainstream, and costlier 3D tools like Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max. The workflow is easy to follow and users get to see the developments real time. It has a WYSISYG interface. So, you get spared from unnecessary waiting for rendering a scene or change in lighting. This can be really time saving and convenient. In fact, the interface resembles that of a video game. With each version, iClone has developed as a capable app to create realistic 3D animations within a game based environment.

In the latest version of iClone Pro, users get more animation related refinements. Taken from Autodesk, Human IK has been deployed in this app. Owing to implementation of this technology, when you assign certain movements to a 3D character, its other body organs responds in an appropriate physiological manner. The MixMoves System has been used to make character movements resemble real life. Now, you can control the characters using mouse and other input devices. The puppet tool enables you to add extra cameras, music and lighting as per your needs. The timeline of iClone Pro has also been spruced up to an extent. If you can shell out $99 more for a plug-in and use Kinect motion sensor, the app enables you to record movement real time. The toon shader is a welcome addition in this version.

The tabs in iClone Pro interface have been arranged in such a manner that users can use them following basic workflow pattern. You can set up a project, create your stage, create actors, tweak them and animate and export the finished work. It even supports 3D formats. The Scene Manager and Content Manager are at the screen’s left side while main 3D workspace remains in center and the modify panel is on right hand side. You can either use content bundled with the app or import your 3D props and tweak them. It can be done in simple drag and drop style and veteran 3D Users will be amazed by sheer simplicity of the program. You can record sound in the app and there is a handy text-to-speech feature as well.

When scene creation is done, animation can be performed using two modes- the Editor Mode and Director Mode. In the latter, you can move your props and actors as it is done in video game using keys. The app will record your actions on timeline as animation blocks. Thereafter, the Editor Mode can be used to modify your animations. It is simple to switch between these modes. For each prop and actor, you get right click menu option. Making modification to the models is simple. If you want, the scenes can be exported as images to be edited in apps like Photoshop. This extends creative possibilities to new heights. The Export workspace in this app offers support for exporting videos, images and sequences.

Reallusion provides excellent documentation with its apps the new version of iClone Pro is not an exception either. At the company website you get access to huge repository of 3D content including animations. The users who buy Reallusion's 3DXchange 4 Pro, can import content from Google Warehouse. It is possible to export iClone Pro content to 3D apps like ZBrush. A software development kit should address needs of serious users.

Positive Points:
•    Easy to learn and use.
•    Extensive content provided with app, more available online.
•    Support for Microsoft Kinect Motion Capture.
•    Flexible audio capture options.

Negative Points:
•    No SDK included.
•    
Conclusion:
Over the years, Reallusion iClone Pro has evolved from an amateur level 3D animation app to an intermediate level animation tool. The simplicity of use this software offers is simply unparallel and the workflow is different but thoroughly enjoyable. Compared to several other popular commercial 3D apps the licensing fee is reasonable and you may try out the software before paying, as it is. Even new users with little knowledge of 3D modeling and animation will not need much time to create watchable 3D animation with the app. The enhancements in animation and physics are handy but they do not affect ease of usage. Its WYSIWYG work environment, vast repository of bundled and online content and excellent documentation make the app suitable for a multitude of users. If the company packs in a SDK with the app, it will become an unbeatable choice.
