PopcornFX Tools exclusively designed for iClone particle creation, allowing for quick VFX generation without the need to code a single line. They are fully integrated with iClone physics, global illumination, self-cast shadows, as well as textures, sprites and mesh import for maximum flexibility.
Distortion Emitter generates transparent particles to simulate water, heat or ripples. The visual illusion is caused by the refraction of normal images. Realistic visual effects can be achieved by using animated image sprites, or transforming them during their lifetime.
The Text Tools are designed for creating text animations like; Titling, Teleprompting, Scrolling Descriptions or to work as Text Labeling in any 3D Stage. Sequentially display multiple lines of text for TV subtitle effects.
This Ribbon Emitter connects particles (or sprites) into a seamless stripe; create circling, twirling or trailing animations in 3D space. Widely used for casting magic spells, or simulating a swimming school of fish, wiggling snakes or hovering insects.
This Mesh Emitter Tool can spit out 3D meshes with up to 4 meshes as the particle source. You get higher visual realism, full-calibre physics capabilities, and perfect collision simulations.
The classic Texture Tool emits image billboards (or decals), which can either be selected from a sprite sheet, or from a single image. It’s frequently used to create effects like fog, rain, smoke, bubbles, fire and explosions.

In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how easy it is to customize and animate a 2D character in CTA3.1 Pipeline version. After 6 sprite-based body parts – head, torso, legs and arms are created, you then used the CTA3 PSD template for structural instructions on how to create an instantly animatable PSD character. In order to animate your PSD character, you need to watch out for the pivot point alignments and layer orders. If you follow the tutorial, and the PSD template then this will help you easily setup the G3 character bone structure for animation. Note: You need CrazyTalk Animator 3.1 Pipeline version for this
In this tutorial, we are going to show you a quick solution for adding animatable facial parts to your G3 characters. First, you may notice that you cannot create facial animations for a character that only has a face image. You need animatable facial parts. Instead of creating facial features one by one, you can add ready-made facial parts in CTA 3.1 through a PSD template that we provide. Note: You need CrazyTalk Animator 3.1 Pipeline version for this
Sometimes, body language like hand gestures speak louder than words. However, it can be a painful process to have to align these hand sprites one by one. Do you know that with CTA 3.1, you can add hand gestures to one character directly from PSD files in about 7 minutes? In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a full set of hand gestures for G3 characters in Photoshop or PSD compatible tools. We will go through the number of the sprites needed, how to add hand sprites onto your PSD characters, how to flip hand sprites for the opposite side, and the importance of the order sequence of folders.
