trying to achieve cartoon with daz or other software

  • #1, by vozerWednesday, 12. February 2014, 23:15 6 years ago
    hey! i just started out with visionaire, but have a little experience in 3d since i am an architect.
    After i read it here i started trying daz 3d. Its super easy for gestures and walk cylce, lovin it.
    But I find all the characters so "simsy".

    I wonder, is there any way to render in daz or another program, so that it really has a toony character like deponia?

    There is a toon render setting in Daz
    Carrara has a Vector Style plugin which is more likely to do what you want, if you look at the 3D World magazine back issues you can get Carrara Pro 6 for free
    I doubt the new Genesis models will work in Carrara 6 but the older Victoria 4 etc will

    have you looked into iClone for character animation? there's plenty of video tutorials for it I think & one of the nice features is that it already comes with loads of pre-made animations that you can add to your characters with fine tuning options etc & it also has ms Kinect support which allows you to create your own animations through motion capture. wink

    There's also the amazing crazytalk animator 2 which is produced by Reallusion (iClone creator also). It supports an automatic multi-dimensional character animation feature. You simply create your character (puppet) in a front view then animate it and then it automatically produces 10 angles of your character (left, right, back, diagonal, etc) inhereting the animation on all those angles.
    Moreover the craziest thing is that you can import 3d motions from other tools (such as iclone, maya etc) and implement them into to 2d characters! I have never tried it but take a look at the videos (reallusion.com) and you'll be tearing your clothes apart!

    just tried around a little bit.

    I would say for beginners who just want easy characters, crazytalk is the way to go. Facial Expression setup takes 2 minutes from a photo and works great. if you want to photomatch a body it gets a little harder, but still smooth.

    The presets, that come with the buy-version are completeley setup and work really good.

    for beginners i would say i found my solution.

    edit: just found a freebie-package for it to try: http://myclone.wordpress.com/2014/01/23/big-bundle-of-500-fr...

    As far as i know freestyle is a renderer for Blender to achieve cartoon like models. I have followed the basic tutorials for blender and have an idea about the UI. It's very powerful but for my purpose (and i believe for the most new guys) i'll stick with 2d modeling/animations for now.

    Of course in blender you can make 2d animations (it has all the modern tools to do it) but you have to import the layers from another source (like gimp, photoshop etc) or make a 3d model of your character/object and animate it at any perspective. This way you might achieve what crazytalk is doing with it's new features.

    But does blender have some kind of preset animations library to apply to a character/object?
