Geoffrey James, the contributing editor for Inc.com, author and professional speaker, recently posted an article on Inc.com sharing his observations on real-time animation technology that will massively transform how movies and animated videos are made.
Reallusion’s iClone is proud to be mentioned as one of the pioneers of real-time animation technology alongside Unreal game engines. Based on Geoffrey’s research and experiences there are five areas where
3D real-time animation is disrupting established practices and establishing new markets.
Industry sectors like: Low-cost CGI and VFX Footage for Feature Film, Deep Pre-Visualization to Reduce Film Production Costs, Television Studios Located in Virtual Reality, Independently Produced Animated Features and Trade Show Kickoff videos.
For example, the latest Hollywood movie Replicas applies iClone real-time animation as a Previsualization tool to reduce production costs.
“Keanu Reeves used the iClone 3D animation software to reduce the shooting budget for his recently released film Replicas. Replicas is heavy on mixed live action and effects, which would have been prohibitively expensive if shot using traditional methods.”
