Character Creator 4.3: support for Headshot 2.0 and better prop editing
The main feature in Character Creator 4.3 is support for Headshot 2.0, the latest version of Reallusion’s paid head-generation plugin, which has also just been released.
Headshot 2.0’s new Mesh Mode makes it possible to convert imported 3D models into CC4 characters, using AI to generate missing parts of the head: for example, when processing 3D facial scans.
You can find more details in our separate story on Headshot 2.0.
In addition, the update makes it easier to edit props, adding the options to weld vertices or to bake the current subdivision level on the 3D mesh.
The software also now supports progressive texture loading, which should reduce start-up times and improve interactive performance.
