HUMAN SCAN INSTRUCTIONS
Before starting shooting, you need to have carefully read the
1. OPERATOR & ACTOR
It takes 2 people to shoot for the Human Scan service.
2. SQUARE METERS
For full-length in-person shooting, you need 4 x 4 meters of free space.
The time required to perform a HUMAN SCAN shot is approximately 3 minutes.
Posture and expression must remain unchanged for the entire duration of the shooting,
Assume a neutral expression: vice versa it would be difficult to keep it unchanged for 60 '', thus invalidating the creation of the model.
5a. HUMAN SCAN > FOR ANIMATION
Assume the A-Pose position, with legs and arms naturally open, head parallel to the floor, and fingers spread.
Warning: the posture in A-Pose is used to animate the avatar and not tight clothing limits the movements of the model.
Depending on the intended use of the model, it may be appropriate to wear overalls or underwear.
5b. HUMAN SCAN > STATIC POSE
The posture is free and can be, for example, with arms folded or with legs crossed and or of any other type.
In any case it is necessary to remember that:
Depending on the location it may be difficult to remain still,
What is not framed during the video is not present in the model,
Very close surfaces are welded together; for example, legs not spread apart involve a mesh with a single volume of the legs and in the event of any subsequent modeling interventions it will be more complex to separate them.
Where a posture is difficult to maintain or assume, you can purchase the HUMAN SCAN FOR SPECIAL POSE service.
6. GUIDELINES FOR THE OPERATOR
Before shooting, remember that:
It is very useful to make a test video to compare with the DEMO SHOOTING - HUMAN SCAN video ;
Fast camera movements create blur effects, so it is important to move around the subject slowly;
Never use the zoom to simulate an approach, you need to physically move to get closer and further away;
Use the grid to keep the frame of the subject aligned with what is foreseen in the SHOOTING STEP BY STEP.
7. SHOOTING STEP BY STEP
Although the video is only one, the shooting for the HUMAN SCAN is made up of 6 phases; pay attention to what must be framed at the beginning and end of each phase so that the video contains all the points of view necessary for the scan of the model.
APPROACH: shoot the subject from the front and in its entirety, get closer while keeping the focus on the face, extend the front shot up over the head and go back a little to the position of the initial frame of point 2.
This is the first of 3 sequences which include head and face.
NECK, HEAD AND SHOULDERS: framing it from the front and a little from above, it turns around the head with the mobile phone tilted to also capture the nape of the neck, while you rotate keep the distance constant that allows you to frame the shoulders from above, after a complete turn ends with the starting position of step 3.
HEAD, SHOULDERS AND STERNUM: shoot the head and chest from the front, while rotating 360 ° keep the distance between the mobile phone and the subject constant, ending with the starting position of point 4 which involves the framing of both hands with straight open fingers.
BODY, HANDS, LEGS AND FEET 1: rotate around the body framing from the neck to the feet and without framing the head, when you reach the middle, lower yourself slowly continuing to shoot from the bottom up, the framing includes armpits and crotch and ends like this in the initial position of point 5 which provides a view from below.
BODY, HANDS, LEGS AND FEET 2: get up by framing from the neck to the feet and finish the tour around the body without framing the head, when you arrive in the middle, frontally, you have reached the initial position of point 6 and the last phase of the video.
BODY, HANDS, LEGS AND FEET 3: lower slowly while maintaining the front view, approaching and tilting the mobile phone to film the armpits, the crotch and both feet from the bottom up. Hands and breastbone in the last shot will remain outside.
Press stop while holding the phone still.
Analyze the video below to replicate the movement of the camera and compare it with your video before uploading.
