3D Scan a Digital Double of Yourself to Dance in the Virtual World

Apr 21, 2022

Have you ever watched a stunning dance performance on television and thought to yourself: I wish I could do the same. Some people may not be as gifted as the professional dancers, yet still want to explore the fun of dancing, this is where high-end technology could help. With the iReal 2E 3D color scanner from iReal 3D and the help of motion capturing software, we have successfully brought a high-precision 3D human model into a virtual world dancing like a pro.

Watch the video below to see how we 3D scan the man and create an animated digitized him.

iReal 2E 3D color scanner supports highly-accurate 3D color scanning, meaning that it save time of post-processing. And its infrared structured light source allows invisible scanning, which causes no harm to the scanned person and gives him a 100% comfortable scanning experience.

The overall digitization process can be summarized as follows:
1. 3D scan the entire body using iReal 2E (common scanning postures: A-pose, T-pose, etc.) to obtain a 3D human model;
2. Sculpture, optimize and map based on the 3D model;
3. Obtain the motion path file of the professional actor via the motion capturing software;
4. Bond bind the complete 3D human model with the motion path file.

Nowadays, you can find the presence of the digital human in the entertainment industry, the news industry, and the mostly-talked-about Metaverse. Even the traditional industries such as construction and manufacturing have utilized digital humans to enhance their businesses.
