Want something different?
Import your own custom characters
Simply import parts or whole characters designed in external software and use them with the included character rig & animations. While still keeping some functionality of the Character Studio.
When using your head image instead of the included head design studio, the head design studio and head rig will be bypassed by your own image, eliminating most of its features. To keep most of the features you can customise specific parts, like adding your own images of hair styles, noses, whiskers, etc. This will give you a good level of personalisation, while still retaining all the advanced features that come with the toolkit.
