Game developers and animation designers can reproduce real-world objects and characters, construct virtual scenes, and build fantastic 3D worlds. Thanks to their highly realistic 3D reconstruction capabilities, 3D scanners highly contribute to 3D animation production.
3D Scanning in Entertainment
3D scanning technology cuts down the cost of 3D game development and 3D movie production, effectively turning innovative imagination into reality.
Explore some common applications
Digitizing Real World Objects
3D scanners can capture real-world tangible objects and spaces and generate digital models for video games and movies. Whether it’s a character model, clothing, furniture or food, you can make your production more authentic.
3D scanning together with 3D software enables you to create 3D models of real-life objects for 3D visualization. This technology is applicable in creating CGI in animation movies and games, archiving, and preserving cultural relics and ancient architectures.
