All the regulars by now know I’m a little bit of a Liverpool fanatic so when this video of the Liverpool squad being head scanned into FIFA 14 arrived I knew I had to get it up onto the site.
But then I started watching it and was blown away by the amount of effort that goes into each and every head scan that exists in FIFA 14.
The players are put into a capture booth where 18 HD cameras surround them and the pictures are then taken. The images are then processed by the machine to 3D model the face after which they are touched up to ensure the colours are as good as possible and then the wireframe enables emotions to be added.
It really is quite something and even more surprising is that they don’t get the players to come to their studio but rather this is a mobile solution that they can simply unpack and setup where ever they go. Something which is a necessity when it comes to high paid sports stars who can’t just take a few days off to come play in Vancouver.
Even the none sporting fans out there have to be impressed with this tech.
