iClone Mocap Plug-in and Kinect Motion Capture The Mocap Device Plug-in is the must-have tool that turns iClone5 into a complete mocap studio solution. With this Kinect motion capturing tool, now you can use your own body to control virtual actors, in real-time, with motion smoothing optimizations. Lightspeed your animations and create authentic motions without having to rent an entire mocap studio or even wear a markered jump suit! (plug-in only works with iClone5 PRO edition) Polygon hair – Making of Pink Assassin - Computer Graphics | Computer Graphics On this project I used C4D for modeling and scene setup, ZBrush for sculpting and texture painting as well as fryrender for material creation and rendering. I also used the plug ins “paintonsurface” and “splinespread” for C4D. My intention was to create a character with personality, who looks like she had lived, and tell a story just through her face and not through accessories. For the head and the upper body I used common box modeling (no special techniques here), and did a retopo for the clothes with paintonsurface to get an even mesh of quads. The zipper has been modeled in a very simple way with primitive nurbs objects. Mainly I used for sculpting the standard, flatten, clay, smooth and move brush. While all this work you should always have photo references in sight. The next step was to create the textures for her face. Once I’m happy with my base, I export this as texture at maximum resolution. The next Maps I needed were specular and roughness maps.
