Technology Is Accelerating & Helping Us Live Smarter

Usually we talk about 3D scanning and visual effects and how the two connect. But let’s take a moment and talk about technology today. Do you think we have seen it all? Look at where we are already. We can ask the devices in our pockets what the weather is, for a phone number, for directions, to send someone a text, and the list goes on. It takes us back to an earlier episode of Star Trek where Scotty tries to talk to a Mac computer.

star trekCars are finally starting to catch up with our expectations. Maybe we haven’t discovered how to make them fly yet, but they are driving themselves. Tesla has jumped out with their version of getting on the highway and letting the car steer itself, change lanes and slow you down before you hit the car in front of you.

For those tailgaters not driving a Tesla, maybe the break lights will flash “SLOW DOWN.”

We’ve also noticed more cars coming out with parallel parking assist. By the time we have to give up our licenses, cars will drive themselves!

Another technology that could be coming our way is Corning’s vision of the future. In their video “A Day Made of Glass,” they highlight a multitude of benefits of having the ability to easily transfer video from one surface to another. Click on the picture.

A Day Made of Glass

We are in for some real treats in the not so distant future. In fact, we are getting little tastes of them now. For those of you that take some time to adopt to change, there’s always the option of moving to the country and living in a cabin. :)

Last Minute 3D Scanning?

You wouldn’t think something like 3D scanning would be an afterthought or that it could be done last minute. But you would be surprised at how many of our customers call us asking for a 3D scanning session within a day or two of the call. Sometimes the need isn’t realized until it becomes obvious the story line calls for it.

The question is can a 3D scanning session happen last minute? The answer is yes! Our equipment is small and portable and allows us to bring it to any location needing 3D scanning. We go on site most often, but from time to time the talent will come to our studio in Los Angeles. Typically it is not the 3D scanning part that can lock you up, unless of course the talent suddenly becomes unavailable. What can become time-consuming, however is the clean up and polish.

3d scan day

As with many companies in this industry, when we are called on a bigger job we work with contractors to assist us with the project. The contractors work under our guidance to keep all work secure and to keep the quality at its highest level. With smaller projects we find our core group to be sufficient.

Catch the Christmas Spirit

When deciding to work on last minute needs for 3D scanning, be sure to do a thorough check of the company you select. Compare your options not only for quality but delivery time as well.

When You’re Hot, You’re Hot

Building multi-layered 3D models, whether you begin with a 3D scanned model or a character modeled from scratch, takes a little planning at the start. The first thing to find out is if the character will be wearing layers of clothing such as a shirt, vest and jacket, and if those items will be removed during a scene. An example would be a character needing to increase in size with clothes ripping off or if they need to transform into an animal or monster. What will the under layers need to look like to make the transition more believable?

Our Fireman above has many layers. From his mask and asbestos shielding pants and jacket to his air tank, helmet, and gloves, there is a lot going on. (On a side note, just looking at their gear lets us see how truly brave they need to be.)

We 3D scanned this fireman in our studio in Los Angeles. Knowing we were going to build out a variety of digital doubles using this model, we first scanned him in his basic uniform and without facial gear.

Taking the raw scan data, we stitched it up and began building out and texturing the first 3D model.

We then scanned him in his more detailed firefighter uniform and gear.  Layer after layer we built him into the image you see below in his full get-up.

Layers are very important and help keep consistency with the character.

Another example of a character in layered clothing is a mobster-type, like the one pictured below. Sam is dressed in a layered suit, but could also have a gun and holster underneath. To add layers even further, we could include a tank top beneath his shirt and some tattoos.

The idea here is to first find the need for the character, then find out what small details are needed to keep the storytelling going?

We do our best during a 3D scanning session to point out the parts that should be scanned, just in case. It is more time-consuming and expensive to try and figure out what is needed the day of the shoot.
