Reallusion Releases Character Creator 3.3 and SkinGen


The New Industry Standard in Digital Human Design

Reallusion is devoted to the digital human design pipeline and now adds another link in the chain of tools to design the ultimate digital human.  Character Creator 3.3 features new realism tools that work with the already released Digital Human Shader and the Headshot plugin for rapid digital double creation for a total solution.  Accompanying the release of Character Creator 3.3, the digital human workflow evolves with SkinGen – an intuitive, dynamic skin layer system, and CC 3 Base+, a greatly enhanced character topology for overall visual upgrades.

The 4K high-res images generated by SkinGen

“SkinGen is a major breakthrough in the digital human workflow that introduces an ultra-realistic dynamic material system dedicated to human skin synthesis. “ said John Martin, VP, Product Marketing, Reallusion. “The tools inside SkinGen are also empowered by the combination of industry leading partners like Texturing XYZ and Substance.  SkinGen makes it possible for anyone to create a character with custom looks for age or appearance, and ultra-fine details down to the pores.

“Texturing.XYZ and Character Creator 3 is a dynamic combination for creating real-time digital humans. The partnership with Reallusion and Texturing.XYZ enables a pipeline to rapidly design detailed characters ready for animation.”  – Jeremy Celeste, CEO, Texturing.XYZ
