In the new book ‘Reimagining Characters with Unreal Engine’s MetaHuman Creator’ author, and 22-year film and TV industry veteran, Brian Rossney dives into using Unreal Engine 5 and MetaHuman Creator from a filmmaker’s angle. Showcased in its own chapter, DeepMotion offers a complimentary tool for Unreal Engine creators, specializing in creating realistic animations for virtual characters. You can explore chapter 6 ‘Adding Motion Capture with DeepMotion’ to learn more about using AI motion capture to breathe life into your MetaHuman characters.
Unreal Engine is a powerful and widely-used game engine developed by Epic Games. It is known for its ability to create high-quality graphics and realistic visual effects, making it a popular choice for game developers, designers and filmmaking. Overall, Unreal Engine is a versatile and reliable tool that can be used to create a wide range of interactive experiences.
AI motion capture provides a more efficient animation creation and editing workflow. Using deep learning algorithms, animations can be generated and adjusted using a dataset of real-life motion data rather than traditional keyframe animation techniques. This can save time and resources for game developers, animators, filmmakers and creators of all types.
