Drawing from talent agencies we will work with you and to your brief to source the ideal subject to become your very own synthetic human. Jon is presented here within a bespoke cross platform player that enables the triggering of various discreet emotions.
Synthetic Humans adopt the latest in 3D modelling and rendering techniques in order to provide the highest levels of realism. Each synthetic human build starts with the selection of model to be scanned for the production process.
Dubbed 'The Italian Speedboat' due to it's construction from laminated wood and aluminium, this multi-camera rig is custom built specifically to focus on capturing multiple portrait images simultaneously and also to be portable enough to enable flexibility in the shoot process. Currently comprising of 12x18mpx canon 600d DSLR cameras (for the main facial detail) and 12x10mpx canon 400d DSLR cameras (for more general detail) up to 72 images can be captured for a neutral scan (whole head) and 24 images for any supporting FACS based scans. The resulting images are then used to create both meshes and textures for the final Synthetic Human.
The images captured with the camera rig are then used to create accurate lifelike 3D models, From skin pores, wrinkles and skin tone through to individual FACS based blend targets for animation.
Using high end video performance analysing software (used for AAA game and blockbuster movie production) realistic and lifelike emotion and movement is captured from actual performances and applied to the Synthetic Humans to bring them to life.
