Interactive prop can only be created in
iClone? No, not really. You can even make your own iProps in 3ds Max
once you created the motions for the iProp. But certainly you need our
plug-in for the embedded code to work.
Design and Create your Model
- Create any
models you want to make it as an iProp.
- Make several different type of
animations to form a combination of motion. Such as rotate, scale and
You may download the iProp with the animation created
in 3ds Max.
Export the iProp
- When you are done with all the
animation of the prop. You can then export the prop.
- Now, save the prop as the file
type, iClone3 File. Click "Save".
- The Reallusion iClone Panel pops
up. On the left side of the Reallusion Panel, save it as "Prop"
in the File Type field.
- On the right side panel. Export
the prop as "ALL". This export both the model and the
animation. Define the animation clips in the animation clips list.
From the animation I created I have defined two motions for my prop.
You can define as more as you wish. When these cycles are defined and
the names of each motion is set. They will show exactly the same in iClone once
you import it into iClone. Of course you may edit the AML script
once you import it into AML Script Editor. So don't worry, if
the names is not what you want in here.
- Click "OK".
Note: Some of you may
notice that it's the same procedure for creating LiveProps in iClone
Import into iClone
Import into iClone to verify that we
have all the animations embedded in the iProp. Then we can export and
import the script to modify in AML Script Editor.
- Import the iProp from Set > Props
> Modify Panel.
- Click the "Import" button to
import the iProp into iClone.
- Now the iProp is right in the
scene. Right-click on the iProp and select perform command to see
the motions of the iProp.
- Right-click on the iProp and
select DramaScript to export
the AML Script of the iProp.
Download the iProp for iClone.
