Pore Detail of a 3D Scan
Effect of Age on 3D Scan Detail
As you can see, the Pore-level detail is very easy to get using our technique and 3d scan cleanup process. But, the age of talent plays a huge role in whether the morphologic properties of their skin can be reconstructed using Photogrammetry.
3d Scanning in Makeup
When 3D scanning young people, especially women, the results can vary drastically due to the quality of their makeup. In fact, it would be interesting to see whether better makeup is able to interfere with the 3d reconstruction of faces. If the reconstruction is bad, you would know that the makeup which is being used is good, therefore, able to hide skin imperfections from our 3D Scanner.
Generally, if you would like to get a good quality 3D scan, I suggest you do not use any makeup at all. We can always add it later at the Texturing stage if needed.
I look forward to sharing with you more about this research in the future. Meanwhile, Like and Subscribe to our Facebook Page updates!
