How To Transform Generated Photos into 3D Characters

The diversity of Generated Photos makes the creation opportunities limitless: a character of any age, race, or face type can be made. And no need to worry about copyrights, royalties or model releases. With multiple options for skin texturing, physique, clothing, and expressions it really is a great way to produce a detailed 3D model. You can do it in 7 steps:

1. Select a face from Generated Photos: you can use a combination of filters or the Anonymizer tool to find a match.

2. Generate a 3D head using the Headshot plugin: it takes only seconds.

3. Morph the character’s head shape to create highly detailed facial features.

4. Add realistic skin effects, such as details, blemishes, and makeup, using SkinGen plugin.

5. Dress up your character choosing from a massive library of hair, cloth, and accessory assets.

6. Make vivid facial expressions and pose your character.

7. And, finally, animate your fully-rigged 3D character.

Scale-up and Instantly Generate 3D Crowds

Besides the creation of unique and highly-developed lead characters, Generated Photos and Reallusion provide an easy solution for character production at scale.

The developers of YouXia, a 3D game set up in a dark future where people are crowded into shantytowns and overpopulated megalopolis, used Generated Photos and Reallusion to generate large mobs and non-player characters. It allowed them to generate up to 100 quality characters in a Day!

Stephane Biesse, the CEO of Aardwolf Interactive that developed YouXia, notes:

“It is truly remarkable how Character Creator and Generated Photos are shaping the future of game development with artificial intelligence, by providing a way for indie game studios and solo developers to aim higher than their initial budget, while producing visually stunning games.”
