From AI-generated Faces to AI-generated Humans
Headshot, the AI-powered plug-In for Character Creator 3 from Reallusion, generates 3D real-time digital humans from a single photograph. Allowing users to employ intelligent texture blending and head mesh creation, to rapidly generate fully-rigged facial and body characters that are also 100% royalty free.
“It is mesmerizing to see how Reallusion’s toolset transforms 2D headshots into 3D full body humans. Generated Photos provides creators with a massive variety of faces, from where they can select the right persona by age, gender, ethnicity, physical features, or image similarity. Then with Reallusion’s software, the 2D image becomes 3D in seconds and gets morphed and detailed to create strikingly realistic and developed characters.”
