Character customization in REDkit?

We don't know. Myself and a bunch of other people have inquired on this, but there was no definitive answer yet.
You can add your own 3d models and as such, in theory there is no real reason to not let you change the model of the player character. However...I believe that CD Projekt fully realises that once the player character changes to one that is NOT a witcher, there's a bunch of other things regarding the character that need to be changed - from what we've seen in The Witcher 2 game.
To give an example, one of the many things that bug me is Geralt's ability to extinguish/light up torches with the Igni sign. If my player character in my module is not a witcher nor a mage, such an ability would be a huge immersion breaker. There are obviously other examples: the bottom line is that if we do indeed can tell our stories through someone else as Geralt, CD Projekt needs to allow us to tailor a lot of the game's mechanics, else the option isn't as powerful as one would expect - and that is considerable amount of work to be done for the guys working on REDKit, so it very well may be the reason we would in fact be NOT allowed to change the player character at all.
It really depends on what REDKit is set out to represent: Witcher 2, or RED engine?

found the vid where they mention editing this
It would be pretty awesome if we could fully customize these things,a lot of cool adventures will be possible for us to create

CD Projekt RED usually keeps their word. In an interview they said that it would be possible to make a Cyberpunk game (they actually want someone to do that). So I guess it's pretty obvious that you will be able to change things like the main character, skill trees etc. IF they didn't lie.
The Igni sign light up/extinguish element of the game can easily be removed by not adding any light-able sources. You can still make torches and campfires and stuff, but if you don't want them to be light-able, that can be easily achieved.

The customize character option is too vague unfortunately, that could simply be minor alterations to npcs.
