This morning Epic unveiled a new tool as part of Unreal Engine titled the “MetaHuman Creator”.
MetaHuman Creator is a cloud-streamed app designed to take real-time digital human creation from weeks or months to less than an hour, without compromising on quality. It works by drawing from an ever-growing library of variants of human appearance and motion, and enabling you to create convincing new characters through intuitive workflows that let you sculpt and craft the result you want. As you make adjustments, MetaHuman Creator blends between actual examples in the library in a plausible, data-constrained way. You can choose a starting point by selecting a number of preset faces to contribute to your human from the diverse range in the database.
You can find additional details on this impressive technology via the MetaHuman page on Epic’s site.
We continue to be amazed at the technology that is driving this industry forward. The advancements in human behavior, both visually and behaviorally, will be the next big leap forward for gaming. We love being along for the ride.
