Developers Diary (July 1st): “Black Technology” of Face Model
In Tiger Knight, soldiers may have different faces. In order to provide players with the most realistic effect, some of these faces were created according to team members. In the past, we had to spend much time on creating face model. Recently, we adopted a new technology to save time, quicken working process, and enhance precision. This technology makes it possible to mass-produce human faces in the game.
We made this improvement by using Agisoft PhotoScan. It generates 3D model by performing photogrammetric processing of digital images. It has a better result when scanning some static objects such as stone.
To generate those face model, we only need to use a camera and the software to scan a face in a bright place.
Of course, some details of these face models are not elaborate enough because of some uncontrollable factors. For instance, people may move slightly and a camera may jitter when taking photos. Hereafter, we will introduce more advanced technology to reappear human faces in the game. What’s more, your face may appear in the game.
