What’s NEW

iClone5 allows you to create in-house animations by simply moving your body in front of any Kinect Motion Capture system.

You can easily customize a variety of daily motions by using the motion puppet and MixMoves system! iClone5 enables characters to interact realistically with their environment or even other characters.

Also included are real-time physics, toon rendering and many other shader effects that will bring you to the next level of professional movie-making.
Seamless Motion Connection

The MixMoves (motion graph) system consists of hundreds of well-calculated, daily motions for top mocap quality. The system automatically generates natural transitions between previously selected motions for male or female actors. Its motion graph technology presents a general framework for human motion states to blend together, seamlessly. Storytellers simply need to select target motions under different states such as standing idle, sitting, kneeling or lying down. It then automatically sequences motions and blends them together in a natural, believable manner.
Body Motion Puppeteering

You may use a mouse or any other handheld device to create an unlimited number of motion variations to reflect your character's personality. Users may select body parts and add puppet behaviors while they control their animations during playback or real-time recording. You may also manually control the puppeteering speed and direction, or let the animation loop with slider alterations. Animators are now able to create frequent motion alternatives with 55 different male & female puppet profiles found in 4 categories. 
Human IK Motion Editing

Licensed from Autodesk®, the same core technology of Motion Builder for human motion control; iClone5 meets the highest standards of human bone structure and motion editing systems. Using Human IK as the core character engine allows your 3D characters to now have automatic floor contact while the intuitive real-time IK motion control keeps a proper body balance. Props also have motion controls with flexible motion adaptations such as holding a gun with both hands, or advanced person-to-person interactions such as shaking hands. 
Direct Puppet

Puppeteer your characters and record the animation progress in real-time with the motion editing controls. iClone5 also incorporates a comprehensive new IK engine that allows you to pin body parts to certain locations, while allowing you to move characters naturally or use iClone to animate the rest of the body for you.
Prop Puppet & Look At

Use a mouse to freely control the movement, rotation, or scale of a prop and record its animation in real-time for authentic movement. With the Prop Puppet panel you will be able to simulate different object movements by using prop animation profiles to further customize movement, rotation or scale; with different X, Y, Z parameters.
Timeline Enhancement

By default the playback speed of each motion or animation clip of a character, or iProp, is linear. However, you are allowed to alter the clip into different dynamic speeds, which changes the overall speed of the motion within the clip.

Reallusion iClone5 provides a better motion management system that well organizes your animation clips.
Device Mocap

iClone5 offers the most affordable and intuitive, motion capturing solution in the industry. Now you may simply use your body to control virtual actors, in real-time, with motion smoothing optimizations. Lightspeed your animations and create realistic-looking motions as now you can literally control actors with your body movements. 

The additional Mocap Device Plug-in (List Price: US$99.95) will be readily available for users who wish to connect their iClone5 with real-time input devices such as Kinect's Motion Capture system. This will allow for highly customized, at-home motion capturing that requires no special suits, additional cameras or sensors.

The Mocap Device Plug-in is the must-have tool that turns iClone5 into a complete Mocap studio solution.

With iClone5's new Mocap Device Plug-in, now you can use your own body to control virtual actors, in real-time, with motion smoothing optimizations.

Lightspeed your animations and create authentic-looking motions without having to rent a mocap studio or even wear a markered jump suit! (the plug-in works with PRO edition only)
