Epic Games reveals MetaHuman, an upcoming tool that will allow you to create a custom, photorealistic digital human in a matter of minutes. The game publisher uploaded a couple of videos that show off digital humans that were created using this new Unreal Engine technology. A browser-based MetaHuman tool is expected to be released later this year.
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.
