Digital Doubles for Visual Effects
Digital Doubles and Virtual Actor Cyberscans in Visual Effects for Television and Feature Film demand deep knowledge of a broad range of artistic and technical topics. Anatomical Subjectivity, 3D Scan Resolution and Mesh Topology are only a few of those.
All of the above have been much debated topics in the field of Character Modelling for Animation way before 3D Scanning and Photogrammetry advances. Being a part of our vibrant Vancouver Film Industry for 15+ years, our experience will be truly valuable to your Virtual Production needs and our quality speaks for itself.
For years, we've been extending ourselves into finding solutions to some of the most common Digital Double and 3D Avatar Customization problems. Contact us for more info!
Indie Game and VR Developers
Our Digital Actors Library includes people from all walks of life and professional disciplines: Models, Performers, Extras, Athletes, Cosplay, Tattoo & Makeup, Artists and Makers. Our talent is eager to participate in your Indie game projects to help expand your and their own viewer-base. Increasing the speed with which you create and inspire is essential to the success of all.
With the help of our Character Talent Agency arm or any local Talent Agency of your choice (See our growing library of Vancouver talent), Scanlab provides Indie Game and VR Developers with Character asset libraries of fully 3D Scanned, Textured, Rigged and Animation-Ready Characters with a NON-Exclusive License at a reduced rate.
Our hope is to provide competitive prices and fair compensation rates for Indie Startups, a scheme working in favour of all, by helping you bootstrap and get Greenlit faster. The obvious catch, you would have to hire your actors back for custom Cyberscans of Facial Animation and Motion Capture!
I’ve been looking for scanned human models for my game, Aliens, Trolls & Dragons all over the net, but it seems no one is offering animation ready models (meaning not more than 15 000 tries and symmetrical pose). I lost hope and started modelling my heroes the traditional way, but it looks like your company may be on a right track.Jakub Kisiel
