Purpose built by Goodbye Kansas in collaboration with the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), our proprietary system achieves the highest fidelity acquisition required for today’s 1:1 photorealistic digital doubles.
Each scan is taken within 1/100th of a second enabling us to capture finer pore level detail of your subjects face and skin contours for the highest possible accuracy. Full FACS expression sessions are directed by our experienced crew in a professional and timely manner so as not to disrupt talent schedules.
Our face rig consists of 60 Nikon cameras and over 300 LED flash units, the 360 Dome configuration has complete coverage of every possible angle of the face.
Our advanced pipeline integration with the capture system enables rapid turnover of high resolution data in a lossless process, expediateing throughput and allowing for faster delivery of processed data.
Our ratecard offers Tier 1-4 levels of Raw scan delivery to fit the needs of your project, which we are happy to talk through upon request. Bespoke requirements can be handled however to meet any specification including capturing with polarised and cross-polarised lighting conditions.
Face data can be processed from raw untouched meshes all the way through to fully rigged and textured photorealistic humans suitable for high-end VFX or Cinematics. A service that cannot be achieved without access to the experienced artist talent and digital human research collated here at Goodbye Kansas Studios.
New and improved full body scanner was built in Stockholm July 2021 and is designed with 200 Nikon cameras in a dome configuration.
Using the same technology found in our state-of-the-art Face Scanner, it captures the full body from 360 degrees – including the underside of the feet due to the unique glass platform.
The precision scanner is mm accurate to perfectly capture a 1:1 digital version of your talent as meshed geometry with texture acquisition.
