RPG Maker Unite details 3D Character ConverterConvert 3D characters into 2D character animation files.
Gotcha Gotcha Games has released new information and screenshots for RPG Maker Unite introducing the role-playing game creation tool’s “3D Character Converter.”
Get the details below.
■ Make Character Walking Animations and Battle Animations with Just a Few Clicks!
Since the Character Animation Data has changed drastically in RPG Maker Unite, it will not have a default Character Generator like in previous titles. However, due to Unity having great compatibility with VRM, a very popular 3D character format, we too, adopted VRM models and converted them into our default character’s animation images!
Due to this reason, we are developing the 3D Character Converter to enable all users doing something similar, through just a few mouse clicks!
—Import VRM models and export into 2D animation images! Fine-tune by selecting different frames! (Above walking animation is six frames.)
■ Free for RPG Maker Unite users! Also Available as a Separate Purchase!
Since the 3D Character Converter is an external app outside of RPG Maker Unite, it could be purchased separately. However, all RPG Maker Unite users are able to download it for free!
Also it is worth noting that despite the converter being made with RPG Maker Unite in mind, it is possible to select other resolutions too! It is totally fine for users using the 3D Character Converter for other purposes as well.
—The RPG Maker Unite setting outputs into files similar to that of the default assets. Users can also select other resolutions like 48×48, 64×64, 128×128, and 256×256 for other uses!
Since the recent advent of virtual reality games and VTubers, VRM character models have become extremely popular within the game creation community, and countless extraordinary 3D models have been born. Users can either use existing VRM models available on the internet, or convert their own custom VRM models for 2D game uses! Let’s make good use of available VRM models or your own characters and make the most unique RPG adventure for them!
