Orion with custom avatars

Orion provides a pipeline for adding custom avatars (models) via a dedicated IKinema service channel. The process requires the following steps:

  • Conact to apply for the service
  • Pay a service fee of £200 per character (over PayPal)
  • Send to IKinema the required FBX model (ModelName.fbx)
  • Receive from IKinema a special retargeting asset for Orion

 Once the retargeting asset is received:

  1. Copy ModelName.ret to /Runtime/retarget
  2. Copy ModelName.fbx to /Runtime/resources/chars
where /Runtime is a directory inside Orion installation path

Restart Orion and select from Options/Output/Output Avatar -> ModelName

You should be able to preview in Viewport and stream out animation directly to the custom character ModelName.


You must also choose either Action for Maya or Action for MotionBuilder as a part of the package.
