Reallusion’s iClone 3: The New Standard for Machinima

“I’ve been playing with iClone since version 1.5 and without reservation iClone 3 sets a new standard for machinima and the casual animator!”…Ricky Grove (gtoon)

Hey everybody, recently I got a chance to sit down and chew the fat with one of the true voices of the Machinima movement, Ricky Grove (gtoon), for an upcoming interview you guys are sure to hear more about in the near future. We had an awesome conversation that spanned everything from the Punk Rock birth of the DIY generation to the sometimes questionable and judgmental views that are taken in relation to some great films out there. It’s sure to have you nerding out right along with the two of us, but Ricky is also one hell of a writer and has put together a spitfire article at Renderosity.com about his thoughts and views on the new iClone 3 build. There’s also an audio interview with John C. Martin II from the Martin Bros. talking about the software we all know and love. You won’t want to miss this if you are a fan of Reallusion and the best real-time production tools on the market. Check it out at


Ricky Grove [gToon], Staff Columnist with the Renderosity Front Page News. Ricky Grove is a bookstore clerk at the best bookstore in Los Angeles, the Iliad Bookshop. He’s also an actor and machinima filmmaker. He lives with author, Lisa Morton, and three very individual cats. Ricky is into Hong Kong films, FPS shooters, experimental anything and reading, reading, reading. You can catch his blog here.

    Thank you, James. I enjoyed writing the article/review except for the fact that it was too short! I left out too many great new functions of iClone 3 like Clone Bone and great new prop system. Ah, well, maybe in the next version review.

    Working hard on a short film shot in iClone for a child’s charity that goes live Nov 1. I’ll be sure to let you know more about when it’s done.

    BTW, enjoyed chatting with you a lot. Will post the interview in another week or so at the Machiniplex.com blog.

    I’m surprised at you. You’ve been holding out on me. I would love to see some of your iClone work and I totally look forward to it Nov. 1. Why don’t you bring it to NY in a couple of weeks and we can sit back and take a gander together. I am eagerly awaiting the interview and was wondering about how long do you plan for the final edited version to be. I know you and I are both “talkers” so I will be interested to see what you kept. Anyway, again, great article and look forward to working together for many moons.
