Our scans implemented in film projects


Based on the photogrammetry technique,
our technology allows us to precisely measure a model based on photographs,
and restore the exact geometric position of its points.

The setups

Both 160 cameras body rig and 90 cameras facial rig are set up to a modulable 360° metal rig surrounded by lights, based on the concept by Lee Perry-Smith. They are triggered simultaneously in 1/100th seconds around the subject, in order to recreate the 3D model.
The structures include long lenses meant to capture the maximum quality for the scans.

Scan morph

Our proprietary pipeline was developed specially to anticipate the animation of the models, and thus enables us to handle scan morph while keeping a perfect alignment for topology and textures.


Our team is composed of professionals from the 3D and VFX studio Unit Image.

Thanks to our expertise and passion, we are able to produce very high quality renders quickly, and ready to be implemented in our clients’ projects.
