Character scanning (photogrammetry)

In April 2016, we completed our works on the Innotech Project, conducted in association with the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology and the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The project was delivered with the support from the National Centre for Research and Development. The initiative focused on developing a photorealistic face animation system and works on methods for creating digital characters with the highest quality possible using currently available technologies.

  • Creating a photorealistic face animation system.

  • Optimizing the use of motion capture animation (marker in VICON, mixed marker and multi-camera, and multi-camera).

  • Use of photogrammetric scanning as a base for facial expression poses.

  • Scanning and recording live actors to obtain the best possible alignment for the model and animation.
