Create & Publish fully-rigged 3D Characters Directly to Sketchfab
Character Creator 2.0 characters are fully-equipped to look great and animate in real-time on the web or in VR with Sketchfab. Character Creator tools are designed to start with an already rigged character base that can be clothed, morphed and animated from head to toe. Choose from hundreds of motions in iClone to animate characters for Sketchfab and add facial animation with lip-sync to make characters come to life with ease. The new Character Creator 2.0 comes with updated visuals for industry standard PBR shaders, allowing users to import PBR textures made with 3D paint tools like Substance Painter, 3D Coat, or Quixel. Users can now export their Character Creator assets to iClone, Unreal, Unity, or Sketchfab with the same PBR visual quality.
