What is a IAVATAR file?
An IAVATAR file is a 3D character used by Reallusion iClone, a 3D animation program. It contains a 3D mesh and textures used to skin that mesh. Reallusion users can create IAVATAR files in iClone, Reallusion 3DXchange (now discontinued), and Reallusion Character Creator.
iClone is a 3D animation program available for Windows, used to create animated videos for films and video games. Notably, iClone is often used to create precise facial and lip-sync animations.
Animators can use default iClone characters, create new characters using the program itself, or create characters using iClone's accompanying Character Creator. All these characters are saved as IAVATAR files. For example, a Character Creator user can select File → Export → iAvatar to export a character as an IAVATAR file. While exporting the character, the user can select the character's max texture size and detail quality.
NOTE: IAVATAR files are often stored with accompanying iClone Motion files.
How to open a IAVATAR file
You can open an IAVATAR file with Reallusion iClone (Windows), to use it in an animation. If your IAVATAR file was created by Reallusion Character Creator (Windows), you can also open the file with Character Creator, to edit the avatar the file contains.
