Adobe Fuse has recently been added to Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite, and it’s shaking up the world of character design. Creating new characters can be a tricky task for any 3D artist, and it’s even harder when the artist is new to CGI creation. While downloading basic models from stock sites can certainly be a good starting point, Adobe Fuse helps when you need something more bespoke.

What is Adobe Fuse?

This often-underused system allows a 3D model to be part of a normal ‘2D’ Photoshop file. Adobe Fuse files can be exported as OBJ models with their associated textures for rigging in 3D applications. They can also be uploaded to Adobe’s Mixamo service, where rigging and animation can be managed on the fly for the creation of an animated FBX or OBJ file. 3D Animation Studios Chennai

However, the wide range of customisation points for modifying the body, along with detailed control of elements such as eye detail and skin effects, make the creation of many unique characters very easy. This makes Fuse an ideal solution for a wide range of character uses.

We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to creating a character with Adobe Fuse. Let’s see what it can do. 3D Animation Studios Chennai 2d

01. Create a character

Fuse allows the user to choose each body part then blends elements together

Starting with the head, Adobe Fuse allows the artist to choose the major body parts. Although there are distinct body parts for each figure, the four main constituent parts (head, torso, legs and arms) can be assembled together in whatever order the artist desires.

Adobe Fuse will do its best to create a blend between the elements. Fuse follows normal 3D application conventions in terms of its UI, making it easy to move around and zoom in on the figure.

02. Customise the Adobe fuse figure

On the right-hand side of the UI are a range of sliders that control a wide variety of points on the model. The more intuitive method involves moving the mouse over an element and clickdragging it.

03. Add clothing

Clothing is the one area where Adobe Fuse could definitely do with more options.

04. Integrate with Photoshop

Move, scale and relight the model within Photoshop and 3D Animation Studios Chennai
