Introducing Cyclist Animated, a high quality photoscanned character with motion capture animation (slightly tweaked to fit bicycle), perfect for game developers and content creators who want to include photorealistic cyclists in their projects. This package includes one animated photoscanned character which has been baked into a Static Mesh with vertex animation textures, meaning far greater performance than using a Skeletal Mesh with an animation sequence. The character includes the option to toggle on/off a high visibility jacket with a cloth animation, which has also been baked into a Static mesh with vertex animation. Finally, the bicycle is also a Static Mesh (nanite enabled) with rotating pedals and wheels. The bicycle chain can be toggled on/off and is animated using a vertex animation texture.


The standout feature of this package is the fact it is solely made up of animated Static Meshes, no skeletal meshes or simulations needed, meaning the optimal performance can be achieved. The cyclist blueprint includes the option to toggle on/off the front and back bicycle lights and randomise the colours for the cyclist's clothes, helmet, high visibility jacket and the bicycle, and also randomise the cyclist/bicycle scale and pedalling speed. Furthermore, three different animation options are included for the cyclist, for even greater variance.
