Los Angeles-based effects and 3D scanning specialist Realscan 3D has announced that its RealCapture NexGen image scanning solution was used successfully in Midway Games' Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run. According to Realscan 3D, the process creates an exact 3D replica of the object or person being scanned, shortening the amount of time productions need for talent to sign off on their likeness. Realscan 3D officials note that the RealCapture NexGen solution took just three days to create a photo-real double of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for his lead role in Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run. The technology is also currently being used on several unspecified video game projects, as well as films such as Jerry Bruckheimer Films' Deja Vu and Walt Disney Pictures' Underdog. "You no longer need a lot of time to create digital assets worthy of the next-generation game consoles, movies or television," said Frank De Marco, CEO of RealScan 3D. "RealCapture NexGen adds value to productions by producing a digital double of the talent suitable for cinematic or game productions in a matter of days -- not weeks. This leads to quick approval by the talent, keeps clients on-budget and allows in-house production and modeling resources to focus on other tasks." "Until now, the creation of digital doubles has been dependent on the creation of hand-modeled interpretations of talent by artists, or scans of colorless lifecasts that are re-textured with photo references that contain baked-in highlights," added Joel Thornton, CTO of Realscan 3D. "These processes are prone to errors and frequently push productions behind schedule and over budget. RealCapture NexGen creates an exact likeness of the talent in one pass and at a fraction of the cost."
