Modelling Digi-Doubles with Scan Data
Guest Speaker: Jan Jinda
Working from actor scan data is now a common task in the VFX and gaming industry. In this masterclass, Jan Jinda will give you a quick but complete tour on how to go from a rough scan to a clean production-ready model.
Jan will first cover prepping the model and scan alignment by wrapping a base mesh to the scan data. He’ll then continue to make model tweaks to bring the geometry to a ready state for texturing and rigging. He’ll also cover testing the model with a series of FACS expression shapes to ensure it is fit for deformation and animation.
Creating a production-ready model from a scan may seem easy, but without a solid workflow in place, it can be tricky to get right. Join us for this ‘digi-double’ workflow fly-through where you’ll be able to see industry techniques at play, and worthy tips and tricks to help push your assets to the next level.
