DI4D unveils highest fidelity facial performance capture at SIGGRAPH 2017

Jul 28, 2017 -- World leading facial performance capture company DI4D will unveil its highest fidelity facial performance capture so far at SIGGRAPH, which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 01 to 03 August 2017. DI4D’s proprietary “motion scanning” technology captures 4D data comprising video rate 3D surface scans tracked with a dense fixed topology mesh. The DI4D solution, which does not require any markers, make-up or structured light, provides much higher fidelity facial motion capture data than alternative solutions and ensures that every nuance of an actor’s facial performance is recorded. Using a DI4D PRO system upgrading with nine 12 mega-pixel synchronised video cameras, the company has been able to capture higher fidelity 4D data than ever before.

Dr Colin Urquhart, CEO of DI4D said:

“We always try to present something new and exciting at SIGGRAPH and this year we will certainly do that by showing the highest fidelity DI4D facial performance capture data so far. We have increased the resolution of cameras used on one of our DI4D PRO systems by a factor of four from 3 to 12 mega-pixels and we have also significantly enhanced our 4D processing and mesh tracking software. As a result we can capture much higher fidelity data and track even denser meshes than with our current DI4D PRO system. This ensures that we can record every nuance of an actor’s facial performance and satisfy the requirements of even the most demanding of movie visual effects projects.”

Colin adds:

“We are also demonstrating the use of DI4D data in VR for the first time on our booth (342) at SIGGRAPH this year. The level of detail of facial performance we are now able to capture really needs to be seen - or even better, experienced in VR - to be believed!”

DI4D is a world-leading technology company, which was formed in 2003 and based in Glasgow, UK and Los Angeles, CA. DI4D provides 4D facial performance capture services, systems and software for visual effects in movies, television, video games, VR and advanced research applications. Recent entertainment projects to have used DI4D include the Warner Brothers movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and the Microsoft Studios video game ‘Quantum Break’, with several more movie, television and video game projects currently in production. Leading research customers include University of Glasgow, Imperial College London and Dallas Children’s’ Hospital. For more information visit www.di4d.com.
