It's now official! Reallusion has announced that HW Dawn will be fully compatible with their upcoming Character Creator 3 (CC3) as soon as next month (September 2018). Check out how pretty Dawn looks in their CC3 promo! ^____^ As far as I could see, CC3 will ship with state-of-the-art content creation features that can leave Poser/DS on the dust, and Dawn will be there when it happens. This is very exciting! I have used iClone since version 4, and since then, Reallusion has been taking giant steps towards integrating the latest and greatest tech into it. So much that iClone 5 was rather mediocre in comparison to how advanced iClone 7 has become. Coming from that, Reallusion has become one of the most exciting companies to follow nowadays, with very creative products such as CrazyTalk Animator and iClone. All of their 2D and 3D animation products render in real-time, where iClone 7 can do it with PBR quality, using some of the latest tech, such as real-time Speed Trees, DX11 GPU accelerated real-time tessellation, native support for Substance PBR dynamic materials, full body mocap, facial markerless mocap, real-time cloth and hair sims, and real-time GI (global illumination). I have already been using Dawn in iClone for a while, but CC2 can only use the default Reallusion figure. So I have instead used Reallusion's 3DXchange to convert Dawn into an iClone figure. The process of converting her facial expressions would take forever to finish, so until now I have been using her without expressions. All this will change with the arrival of the brand new CC3, which will already support Dawn, so we will no longer have to go through these cumbersome 3DXchange conversions. Based on the CC3 release previews, it will be able to convert, fit, and rig clothing to Dawn with features way more advanced than Poser or DS could dream of. This, of course, means that Dawn will enter a new content market at Reallusion. I am eager to put my grubby hands on the upcoming CC3 and get into the exciting new features for clothing and character creators. It can get as simple as using dials to create your character, or to create your own stuff from scratch and add it to CC3 and iClone 7. Kudos to HW for this new alliance with Reallusion, one of the most exciting companies to follow nowadays. Just think of it - Dawn will be the first figure to exist natively in Poser, DS, CC3 and iClone 7. Yay!
