FaceBuilder for Blender & Character Creator 4 Help Make 3D Characters from Photos

The tools now work together to create realistic people.

KeenTools and Reallusion announced the integration of FaceBuilder for Blender with the latest Character Creator 4 and Headshot 2. This should "provide users with a shortcut to creating look-alike full-body 3D characters with unique facial features using photos of real people."

Starting from KeenTools Blender Pack 2023.2.0, FaceBuilder incorporated a new Export to Character Creator option. This enables users to create and export a fully textured digital replica of a real person's head with a single click. There is now no need for manual mesh wrapping. 

Character Creator 4 provides a variety of body types and extensive collections of clothing, hairstyles, and animations. By combining the head and body, you can craft a unique 3D character with a high level of likeness ready for export to any 3D software or game engine.

Here is how you turn a photo into a 3D character:

  • Take 4-8 photos or snapshots of a person
  • Create a fully textured digital copy of the head with FaceBuilder for Blender
  • ‍Export-open the head to Character Creator 4 in one click. Fine-tune mesh with the Headshot 2 plug-in
  • Finalize your character: generate body, hairstyle, clothes, animation, etc.
  • Export your ready-to-use character to any external 3D software or game engine
