Options for Creating a Custom Character

Unleash Your Creativity: Character Creation in Rapport

Imagine captivating characters that elevate your interactive experiences. Rapport empowers you to bring them to life with a suite of options that cater to your workflow and artistic vision.

Ready Player Me Integration:

For a seamless experience, Rapport integrates with Ready Player Me (RPM), a popular platform offering extensive character customization. Design unique characters without prior 3D design knowledge. Rapport directly downloads the highest-quality version, ensuring optimal performance and flawless animation within your projects. Only use the RPM integration within the Rapport platform to create your RPM characters, as this is setup to enable those characters to use the Rapport animation system.

Beyond Ready Player Me:

Rapport understands the value of choice. We offer support for various character creation tools beyond RPM, including industry leaders like Reallusion and Unreal Engine Metahumans (direct Metahuman creation within Rapport is coming soon). Utilise Rapport's control files to seamlessly drive animation for characters created in your favourite tools.

Get Started:

Whether you prefer the user-friendly interface of Ready Player Me or the power of advanced creation tools, Rapport has you covered. Explore the possibilities and create captivating characters that elevate your interactive experiences!
