Author Topic: PBR coming to iClone 7  (Read 1959 times)

This iClone section of the forum sure is lonely.

Reallusion has recently started announcing their plans for iClone 7, hopefully to arrive in March of 2017.

Scroll down just a bit on the page to see the video.

One of the long-awaited improvements is a PBR shader.  That should make the use of Substance Designer and Painter much more interesting to the iClone community.  Materials with exposed parameters are fun, but it's a shame to have to dumb them down to iClone 6's non-PBR shader.

Work-in-process video #1 has been released, with #2 targeted for January and #3 in February.

There's not a lot of iClone news or activity here, but I will give two quick updates.

1) iClone 7 is now released, and it has phenomenal improvements in its visual quality.

Here's a "new stuff" video (1 of 3)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdqDKY_rRUY

You can learn more at https://reallusion.com/

2) My suggestion that iClone support the $TIME variable on substances has been granted, so now things like "animated caustics" will actually animate inside iClone.  Very cool.

I love the painter for 3d models and it has been a journey of learning (to use it); but after many hours of you tube in think I have it down. It was ICLONE that pointed to your site when I pre-purchased your program and ICLONE together, back in Feb 2017. I am a little disappointed in the transfer of materials from painter to ICLONE; first 2 models looked good, but on the third model (most complicated) the materials transferred (some) did not look like the ones from Painter. Also the emissive (s) do not look the same as In painter. So, I don't think it is your issue in ICLONE 7 Pro but I though I would mention it. It could be that I am not using the correct shader or some other parameter. I purchase the indie 3 pack with designer and material 2d to 3d.
I will keep trying other things. Thank you for your updates.

Hi,

Can you please post some images of what you are getting? I can take a look at the setup.
