The guys from Legacy Effects behind those jaw-dropping special effects in the Avengers, Avatar and Jurassic World keep blowing us away with their work. They have released a new video showing their special effects for the latest installment of the Terminator, including how they used Artec’s MH scanner, an early model that Artec Eva was built on.
At the beginning of the video you can see how the team 3D scanned Arnold Schwarzenegger and also made what they call “old-fashioned casts.”
Scott Patton, the company’s lead designer, explains why that was needed: “We had life casts of Arnold, we had a couple of scans of Arnold, so we took them all into Zbrush, cleaned them all up, made them all nice and then took an endoskull, put that inside and started carving it down like you would with clay, like they did on the original.”
The result is immaculate hybrid makeup, where the exposed parts of the endoskull fit perfectly beneath the facial skin of the Terminator.
University medical art students need accurate 3D models as a foundation for their work as medical illustrators. The University of Dundee teaches them how to use Artec Eva and Space Spider for creating 3D models.
The task in this case: to equip a helicopter with a downward and diagonally facing camera for capturing aerial views of the area beneath it, for use in rescue missions and environmental surveillance, among other applications.
An archaeologist needed a way to digitally preserve ancient Peruvian artifacts and petroglyphs in damp, humid conditions, far more reliably and quickly than traditional photogrammetry.
