A great deal of work and planning goes into each and every inch of a character to create a world that the audience wants to be a part of. In the past, that required countless hours of anatomical sculpting, touch ups, and revisions. With the help of 3D scanning, an artist no longer has to toil endlessly to achieve the likeness of an actor or the proportions of a costume. The more tedious steps of that process are eliminated which allows them to create at a higher rate, bringing down budgets and raising quality all at once.
