High quality: The model is detailed, but low poly. It is fully quad based, with good edge loops, a clean mesh, and useful rigging controls. The included optional hair is especially nice, although as it is geometry based it raises the poly count considerably.
Fully rigged: The model is fully rigged, including the head and mouth. The high quality rigging supports IK/FK switching, and squash and stretch. It's ready to be handed off to your animation team without modifications for anything from crowd scenes to close ups using lip sync.
Production ready: The model has been used in commercial productions before, and is easy to work with. The included textures are detailed and look very good in renders.
Fully supported: Browndog stands behind the models we sell, and we're actively working on improving them. As we make improvements to our models - such as creating new clothing sets - we will update the model packages. Any such updates will, of course, be available at reduced cost to existing purchasers.
Customizable: The model comes with a single generic clothing set comprising blue jeans and a t-shirt, which you can retexture to fit a range of roles. It's also relatively simple to change the clothing geometry, with only minor tweaks to the rig needed. The model also comes with an optional hairstyle, but again you can easily use other hair models from your existing library.
- Verts: 18k
- Edges: 34k
- Faces: 16k
- Tris: 32k
The optional hair is unavoidably detailed, and raises this to:
- Verts: 728k
- Edges: 1.4m
- Faces: 695k
- Tris: 1.4m
Textures are all high res, ranging from 512x512 to 2048x2048, as appropriate. All textures are provided in lossless IFF and PNG formats for enhanced quality.
Note 1: The rigging has been done using Anzovin's The Setup Machine 2 and The Face Machine plugins for Maya. The resulting rigs are easy for animators to use, and very functional. You do not need these plugins to use or animate this model, nor to modify the body rig. However due to limitations in Maya animators must install the free Anzovin Rig Nodes plugin. This plugin is very lightweight and is included with this package.
Note 2: The model is also supplied in the .obj format - this version is unrigged due to file format limitations.
