24 October 2016 14:30


‘3D Scanning a Zombie Awakening’

The Zombie Apocalypse reaches a terrifying new level of possibility thanks to SnapTank, the affordable marketplace for photorealistic 3D scanned assets.

Partnered with local specialists, SnapTank have created a series of one of a kind Zombie 3D models. Highlighting the new heights of photorealism that are now attainable. “We’re massive Walking Dead fans. We thought what would be more awesome than to 3D scan some zombies. Taking on the challenge of making blockbuster style zombies accessible and affordable for 3D artists.” - Ross from SnapTank.

SnapTank is also shedding light on the whole process from using traditional makeup techniques, state of the art photogrammetry scanning and rendering, with a ‘behind the scenes’ video. Educating those who want to know more about the methods involved, how photorealistic scans are created and used, along with entertainment for the general public.

“The scanning rig works on a basic level – 150 DSLR cameras fire at the same time. We put all of those images into our software, creating a 3D model. The method is called photogrammetry.” Matt Bowler, Clear Angle Studios. A method garnering increased awareness in the 3D community.

London based 3D animation studio, Feed Me Light, got involved in the final stages of the project. Working with 3D models to create an apocalyptic zombie render for SnapTank, showing off the detail and benefits of using scans. “The project was a really exciting one to be involved in. It was our first time using 3D scans and we feel the results really turned out great.” Denis, Feed Me Light.

“We believe in photorealism. In making it accessible and affordable to the 3D community. We wanted to involve a collective group of people in an exciting project to show the in’s and out’s of what’s involved in a highly technical process. We feel we’ve achieved that”, Ross from SnapTank outlines.
