Students see double with 3D animations

Our Level 3 Creative Industries IT students have had some fun playing with IR cameras and 3D modelling software.

Using an iPhone 10, Luke Hocking downloaded an IR camera app to take a 3D scan of his model, Kealin Doak. Luke then used 3D modelling software to clean up the model and used another app that projected the image onto a 3D model.

Luke achieved all of this in under two hours – we’re amazed by the resemblance. This type of 3D animation could be used in a game or animation film.

David Ray, IT Lecturer, commented: "The level of knowledge Luke demonstrated was exceptional. I'm still not 100% sure I understand how he did it. The likeness is uncanny!"
