In my pursuit of game development I have sought software assistance via the Reallusion combo pack available at a discount on Renderosity! It is a sweet deal imo. It’s still the most money I have put down for a software program on my Game Dev journey, other than my 3D Asset collection.
I spent this past weekend getting to know Character Creator 3 and imported a handful of Daz figures, along with some clothing and weapons and did a few test renders. I was surprised by how fast CC3 will kick out a 4K image render! Blazing fast.
Currently I have a long way to go, and realize that there are many more steps to Game Dev than just getting a 3D character into CC3 or iclone7. I feel it’s a start. Based on the timeline that I have so far, maybe by end of year I will have something to show for the effort I have put in this year.
Ultimate goal is to create realistic VR games and experiences. Prior to achieving that, I want to create playable desktop games and cinematic shorts using 3D assets.
