A New Wave of Technology: Presenting Your Merchandise in 3D

The internet is a fresh faced landscape still yet to be fully explored. Recently Amazon has had their 20th anniversary of establishing a marketplace for household goods of all kinds. When viewing a product, there are generally a handful of images. That was the past. One of the newest waves of technology that break upon the internet’s shore are 3D representations of these goods. They are digital replicas which can be viewed from an entire 360 degree gamut. You may zoom in, rotate, and inspect the texture and surface – therein enhancing the consumer’s experience (possibly first experience) with a product.

Photography is not going away any time soon, but its downfalls should be known. The following variables exposure, focus, composition, resolution, and white balance are key to creating an image that is candy for the eyes. Browsing the internet will show you quite a range in the quality of images. To create a digital replica there are precautions to make to ensure a quality result ensues. Using 3D scanning to first capture the object’s shape, scale, silhouette, and likeness is the first step to creating the ideal digital replica. Secondly is the photographic reference which must be taken with 3D emphasized as a focus. That means the photographer must be experienced in working in 3D to know the essential camera angles necessary to reproduce the product accurately.

The previous medium of magazines, brochures, and newspapers would not be able to support 3D environments, yet today’s smart phones, laptops, and computers are most enjoyable when pushing the medium – when playing in the third dimension. Perhaps the new jump will be holographic, but for now let’s embrace 3D digital items of all kinds.

Cyber Scanning and its Future

Cyber scanning, 3d scanning,  and lidar scanning are all popular terms being used right now, but do you know what the difference of each term is? Cyber scanning and 3d scanning refer to the scanning of people and small to medium sized props. Lidar scanning refers to large area scanning or vehicle and building scans plus landscapes and sets. There are also technologies that allow for CG pipelines to be condensed, which speeds up production time and saves capital, solving budget issues.

CG elements are very useful and flexible to work with. When you are shooting a scene on location, afterwards during post production, characters, materials and objects can be added to the scene. If you were to 3D scan the entirety of an environment using lidar scanning, opposed to modeling CG elements, you would be able to add precise detail, as lidar scanning captures exact measurements. For example, if you were to click on two points in the scan data, you would know the actual distance from one wall to the next, or from the ground to the ceiling, or one object’s distance in relation to another object. This makes for a more believable effect, and allows you to destroy an environment in any way you want. Utilizing a lidar scanned environment will also allow an entire scene to be acted out on a green screen, minimizing travel time for the talent.

This technology is also used in film. By having the characters cyber scanned, they can be used for a video game version of the film using the same exact characters in the same exact environment.

A film can be an immense experience. To take things a step further, imagine being a character in a film, opposed to watching the story unfold statically and safely in an armchair. Imagine having a free-roam 3D camera at your disposal as the viewer. As a scene plays out, you would be observing each moment from multiple angles as if you were really there. What if you could appear as an avatar in the film and could have this experience with friends online. The non-human actors could be programmed with AI to react differently depending on your dialogue and actions, making movies transform from one you’ve seen 100 times and can quote every line, to a dynamic experience that is free-flowing and rapidly changing before your eyes.

The meld between forms of media all taking advantage of the latest technology will create a seamless model to be used in film, television, commercials, episodics, or even game cinematics. Soon the same characters will be performing in over-the-web multi media or social media. The list goes on as digital assets with photo real characteristics find their way into our experience more and more every day.
