Character Creator 4.2 Has Been Released

The update introduces a new Dynamic Wrinkle system, the ability to export heads with Target set to "Mesh to MetaHuman", and more.

Reallusion has announced the release of Character Creator 4.2, a long-awaited update to their character creation solution for designers to easily generate, import, and customize stylized or realistic character assets for use with iClone, Maya, Blender, Unreal Engine, Unity, or any other 3D tools.

The highlight of the update is the new Dynamic Wrinkle system, an intuitive and customizable system that will enable you to set up highly-realistic wrinkles for your digital 3D characters. According to the team, the system features Flow Map and Wrinkle Constraints technologies, designed to help "create realistic and stylized wrinkles, perfect for pushing the boundaries of realism for digital human actors and giving comical expressions to cartoon characters".

The update also adds:

  • New Preference > Included baked wrinkle textures on save can help speed up the loading of wrinkle assets.
  • Using Export Head with Target set to "Mesh to MetaHuman" lets users export the head mesh with baked MetaHuman UV layout and textures.
  • New Snap to Center Plane lets the users precisely position selected joints on the center plane of the scene.
  • AccuRig > Skeleton and Bind Skin > Force Symmetry lets users work on both sides of a symmetrical model at the same time.
  • Optimize and Decimate > ActorBUILD provides several options for converting the hair. When the Hair Type is set to "Body Mesh", the conform data for the facial hair is assigned to facial morphs.
  • Vertex colors will now carry over from ZBrush to Character Creator when the character is created and updated.
  • Smooth display mode now shows the vertex colors of the meshes.
  • And more!
