Craft Photorealistic People in Your Browser: Epic’s MetaHuman Creator
Epic’s using the Unreal Engine to create a tool that lets you create photorealistic faces in your browser. If you still believe anything you see, it may be time to stop. Here’s more from The Verge:
Epic says the MetaHuman Creator can be used in conjunction with modern motion capture and animation techniques for creating lifelike movements and human interactions scenes built for video games, film, TV, and other formats. The company says these photorealistic humans can be generated in a matter of minutes and equipped with unique hairstyles and clothing, and then they can be tailored further to meet the needs of a production. And these “metahumans” can be manipulated in real time within the tool itself and just using a web browser, Epic says.
