HD Rendered IClone Animation Clip

Here’s a very short animation clip I made using Iclone 7. I used Character creator 2 to create it and used iclone animation to make a brief clip. Most of these same animations you can use in your Unreal Engine 4 Project as taunts or even as movements. I will soon try to make a little cinematic clip using the animations as well.


Animations added in my Unreal Engine 4 Test Project

Hey folks, as you’ll see in the video below I’ve made a lot of progress from the previous post I posted on my Unreal project. The graphics are improved and I was able to add some motions and character movements. You’ll see as I press 1 on the keyboard my character in this case I call her Tanya I’m able to make her start doing an air dance. And the camera isn’t exactly where I want it to be but I can fix that later. This is only a test to see how to use the engine and add in all the animations from Iclone 7/IClone Character Creator. There’s a few errors I made but I have gotten the concept of how this program works. Unreal Engine makes the projects very easy the hardest part is setting the blueprints and setting the animations in right. It also helps because they provide a debug log as well, but having animation blueprints help alot in the sense you don’t have to code anything really. The graphics can be improved as well. Stayed tuned once I complete a playable type game I’ll upload it to my blog. Thanks for reading and tell me what you think.

Unreal Engine Progress

Hey everybody, I’m happy to say I’ve finally figured out a lot of the Unreal Engine 4 and am starting to understand the Animation blueprints more. One thing that I can say is you have to know how to use both Character Creator 2, 3DXChange 7(PIPELINE), and the Unreal Engine 4 itself to make your game a success. Their are plenty of YouTube video’s with tutorials on how to make this possible and I will share one that is brief and right to the point. Below is my current progress with the Unreal Engine 4. My latest progress I will post on my Instagram and Twitter! Let me know what you think.

Coding! What is it? How to use it?

Hey folks, as we advance with technology coding is growing and is the way we operate when it comes to computers. Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, etc.  they’re all made with coding. Coding is also used in a lot of video games that we play on xboxOne, Playstation 4, App Store games, and PC gaming. There are game engines that use coding to create their video games Unity is one that uses coding for most of the programming. Unreal Engine 4 using coding in a way but most theirs is broken down into blueprints which we will talk about in a later post. Coding is also used to create Game Engines like Unity and Unreal Engine. Coding is something that takes some time to learn but their have a lot of free courses available out there to teach you how to code, with some even offering you a certificate in coding. Now here is the thing having a certificate in coding isn’t going to help you get a job unless you fully understand how to code and have to have projects like websites, games, apps, etc. showing proof you know how to code and that you got the certificate with your knowledge of understanding it. I will be creating a page in the artist tips page soon to talk more about coding and show you some of the projects I’m working with right now in coding. I will also be posting on twitter websites you can go to take free courses for coding.

Below is a picture from google showing you Unity 3D and as you can see its free software too you. Go check it out at madewith.unity.com
