November 20th in Brisbane – Six teams gathered in Australia to compete in SIGGRAPH Asia’s Real-Time Live! Reallusion was invited as a guest to showcase its latest Headshot technology for Character Creator 3.
The show featured the host and Real-Time Live! chair; Mike Seymour – editor of FXguide, introducing each team in the competition from Australia, Japan, China and the USA. Reallusion’s John Martin presented Character Creator Headshot with a demo that created a digital human from a photo and added the character to a virtual production previs shot in iClone.
“SIGGRAPH Real-Time Live! is a great experience for both those in competition and the audience. Reallusion was happy to be invited to present Character Creator Headshot at Siggraph Asia Real-Time Live!,” said John Martin, vice president of Reallusion. “Digital Humans are everywhere these days and the Reallusion tools and workflow we shared in Brisbane shows how real digital humans are able to be quickly created for films, games, immersive projects or virtual production.”
Character Creator Headshot launched on November 19th and first debuted at Real-time Live!. The AI powered plugin, Headshot turns any photo into a 3D digital human head that takes digital doubles to a new level. Coupled with iClone 3D Animation software, Character Creator Headshot can create a 3D character ready for animation and motion capture.
