Epic are the makers of the videogame production software “Unreal Engine”, known for producing some of the best graphics in videogames (and recently, in films and TV shows as well).
Now, they have just showed off their newest software for producing lifelike human faces and characters, faster than ever before.
It is called the Metahuman Character Creator, and it allows artists to create unbelievably lifelike human character models almost in real time.
Check out the video at the top of this blog post to see just how quickly it works.
These models can then be exported to be used in animation software, or used with motion capture from human actors.
It promises to speed up the process and bring down the cost of developing rich, natural-looking human characters in all sorts of media in the future.
