Hanging Off Jefferson’s Nose

Nice use of CrazyTalk to promote a new book, although the choice of fonts might have been better…

New 3DXchange 5 Pro video tutorial

Reallusion has posted yet another 3DXchange 5 Pro video tutorial…

This one shows how to get the free bonus Templar Knight character (it comes with 3DXchange 5) into 3DXchange with external BVH motions, and then how to output a proper iClone character with a motion Perform menu.

If you’re trying this on less helmet-y characters then keep in mind that the facial animation capabilities don’t arrive until we get the $499 “Pipeline” version of 3DXchange 5, due in June.

DAZ to iClone

Warlord’s real-world demo of a DAZ character conversion, using the new 3DXchange 5 Pro…
