Fast Animation with iClone and Nvidia Omniverse

Reallusion has released the iClone Connector for NVIDIA Omniverse, adding a complete character animation pipeline to Omniverse Create and Omniverse Machinima applications.

When the Character Creator 3 Omniverse Connector launched in April 2021, creators of all skill levels could efficiently and easily create digital humans for any type of project. Reallusion now enhances the pipeline with the capability to create animations for their characters through the new iClone Omniverse Connector.

Experience the tools now and see it live during NVIDIA GTC, Nov 8th to Nov 11th. At the show, Reallusion will present an exclusive session about the debut of the iClone Omniverse Connector. Reallusion will also speak at the NVIDIA Omniverse User Group, demonstrating and answering questions about the iClone character animation workflow for Omniverse.

For further information, let’s visit this article to know more about the iClone-Omniverse Connector.

The Powerhouse of Animation Production

Digital humans play an important role in the Metaverse, but the creation of character animations is often accompanied by a significant expertise barrier and price tag. iClone provides an innovative way to personalize animation for different styles of characters with its fast and intuitive animation production system.

The iClone Omniverse Connector simplifies character facial morph animation, body animation, props, camera, lights, and scene setup while exporting everything to Omniverse. Combining iClone 7 and Omniverse, individuals or design teams can create, animate, and deploy digital humans and 3D characters for simulations and visualizations

Collaborate with Photorealistic Simulation

NVIDIA Omniverse is an open platform built for virtual collaboration and real-time photorealistic simulation. Thanks to the USD and Omniverse Nucleus service technology. Creators can connect different USD compatible applications and interact in the same Omniverse render viewport, or virtually collaborate across the world without boundaries.

Full Character Performance with Easy Facial and Body Controls

Whether producing a functional crowd sim or embarking on cinematic storytelling, iClone gives the power to enliven scenes with rich character assets and provides the tools to let creators animate more freely.

The iClone character animation system consists of lip-syncing, facial expression, and body animation tools. Empowered with main-stream mocap gear and a massive library of high-quality character assets and motions from ActorCore. Creators can generate character animations easily in this all-in-one platform.

Creators can send the whole iClone project to Omniverse in one click. On the other hand, they can selectively update a specific item in an iterative design process to have creators’ work path-trace rendered with elevated visuals in Omniverse, near real-time.

Tightly Integrated with Omniverse Audio2Face - Multi-language, AI Driven Voice to Animation

iClone and Omniverse in combination help a variety of industries to access and deploy characters as workplace performers, virtual hosts, or citizens for simulations and visualizations. In this streamlined integration, Audio2Face simplifies the head mesh wrapping process with presets of CC characters. Audio2Face generates expressive point cache lip-sync animations from voices, with optional facial styles and adjustable strength levels. Finally, the facial animation can be baked to iClone facial morphs and loaded back to iClone. Creators can further refine the lips details with iClone’s native lip-sync technology, and add natural facial expressions or body motions to complete the full character animation.

Photorealistic Lighting and Real-time Post Effects

Automatically transfer iClone lights and properties – IBL, directional light, spotlight, point light, light shapes, and emissive materials. The physically accurate Omniverse path-traced lighting gives increasing realism through global illumination, natural light bounce, accurate shadow, scalable light shapes, and time-of-a-day simulation. More advanced visual effects can be achieved by Omniverse Post Processing.

Directing Cinematic Cameras - DOF, Motion Blur

Automatically transfer iClone camera properties and DOF settings. With an option of baking iClone multi-camera sequences into an animated Omniverse camera. More camera effects such as Motion Blur can be added by Omniverse.

Give Believable Looks to any Objects

Auto-convert iClone PBR materials, SSS, and Digital Human shaders to Omniverse MDL materials. Corresponding textures and material attributes will be mapped accordingly.

Massive Character Assets & Motions for USD

ActorCore allows creators to quickly search, view, and download photorealistic 3D people for AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) crowd simulation. ActorCore also provides thousands of AAA quality, well-themed mocap motions. And they can be further edited in iClone, and transferred into USD for Omniverse.

Powerful servers to boost performance in iClone 7 (IC7) Omniverse Connector

iRender is an appropriate and effective service for special software such as iClone Connector and NVIDIA Omniverse. We provide high-performance servers for GPU-based engine rendering through the Remote Desktop application

We are releasing new servers for iRender’s users, which have powerful processing capabilities of AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro 3955WX @ 3.90GHz. Besides, they have multi-GPUs: 2/ 4/ 6/ 8 RTX 3090 24GB VRAM to boost performance in the rendering process.

iRender’s workflow is simple and easy. You need to create an image and then boot a system. Next, you connect to our remote servers and take full control of our machines. There you can install any software that you want.

We not only have powerful configurations, but also we have excellent service with a great support team. In addition, we want to bring a comfortable and helpful feeling to all customers. They will always be satisfied when they use our service. I would like to sponsor hours rendering on power servers for you if you CREATE AN ACCOUNT right now and contact via email: [email protected] or Whatsapp/Telegram: +84 0394000881.
