They may live in Vyond Studio, but now they look just like us! The Vyond characters have been getting mini-makeovers over the past few months, and now they’re ready for their big reveal.

What’s New?

Realistic Eyes

The Character Creator now has eye shape options with realistic movement. Real-looking eyes will help your viewers identify with the characters, aiding in higher engagement and video retention.
All eye colors can be adjusted, and pre-existing eyes are still available (some of them blink now too).

Traditional, Religious, Holiday & Historical Attire

Last year, we released a series of templates for the holidays with outfits to match, and expanded on cultural and religious attire. Additions include: yarmulkes/kippot for male characters, burkas, hijabs, turbans, historical Native American and Pilgrim outfits, saris, and kurtas.

Most of the characters below are available as stock character options in the video-maker, while a few have been modified in the Character Creator.
