To the aspiring and professional 3D animators and VFX artists out there, Epic Games is about to revolutionize the way you create human characters with their MetaHuman creator tools.
And now, with their latest announcement during the State of Unreal keynote at GDC 2023, you’ll be able to animate those characters with just an iPhone! Yes, you read that right, no more expensive and complicated motion capture setups required. Epic demonstrated this game-changing technology with a live demo featuring an actor from the upcoming game Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, and the results were nothing short of amazing.
And if that wasn’t enough, the company also showcased how the same animations captured onstage were used to bring another MetaHuman character to life. This new feature is set to launch this summer, so get ready to take your animations to the next level with Epic Games.
