IC Python API:RL Python Samples
Main article: iClone Python API.
The following samples demonstrate the use of the iClone Python API for creating simple and useful tools, including the implementation of major APIs exposed in iClone. If you are new to Python scripting or the iClone scripting environment, we recommend that you start off with the novice and fundamental level lessons.
Python of the Month
Python of the Month are monthly to bi-monthly lessons on various topics with the sole purpose of getting you up to speed on the various features of the iClone Python API. Each lesson comes with a plugin script as well as five fundamental lessons that are based on the content within the plugin script.
|Release Date||Plugin Script||Fundamentals I||Fundamentals II||Fundamentals III||Fundamentals IV||Fundamentals V|
|June, 2019||Smooth Camera Follow||List All Props||3D Look At||Transformation Key||Linear Interpolation||Float Slider|
|July, 2019||Audio Driven||Progress Bar||Animated Material||Audio Visualizer||File Path||Color Picker|
|August, 2019||Camera Auto-Focus||Stopwatch||Bounding Info||Linked Controls||Blurry Vision||Align to Camera|
|November, 2019||Camera Dolly Zoom||Object Type||Message Box||Item Lister||Dialog Callbacks||Local Move|
|December, 2019||PopcornFX Sequencer||Table View||Tree View||Plugin Window||Loading PFX||Loading JSON|
|February, 2020||Spring Joints||Transform Math||Rotation Math||Error Handling||Handling Time||Basic Math|
|March, 2020||Pose Manager||List View||Icons and Images||Serialize Pose||Screenshotting||Saving JSON|
Cells in light yellow are lessons derived from full-fledged paid versions, but they are still useful on their own. For a better understanding on how they integrate into the bigger picture, you might be interested in purchasing the fully-featured scripts from the Reallusion Marketplace. For more information see the Python of Month script article for the corresponding month.
These lessons come in the form of free plugins. They are classified into different difficulty levels:
- Novice: Recommended for those who may be new to scripting and are not familiar with the iClone API library.
- Intermediate: Recommended for those have made an effort of understanding the iClone API and are getting comfortable with Python.
- Advanced: Recommended for those who have deep knowledge of the iClone API and are proficient with Python.
|Novice||Batch Render Folder||Takes multiple iClone projects within a directory and renders each one to a separate video.|
|Novice||Joint Driven Morph||Drive morph targets via real-time rotation of bone joints.|
|Intermediate||Group Manager||A utility that creates layer controls for iClone.|
|Intermediate||Musical Keyboard||Creates key-press events that can respond in real-time.|
|Advanced||Light Remote Control||Implements Internet of Things to drive functions within the iClone application itself.|
