Photogrammetry: a technology that uses images of the photographed object to reconstruct their 3D shapes and spatial positions. This technology is used in many fields such as games and film, etc. With the help of photogrammetry, we can accurately scan models and objects and obtain high-quality initial 3D models in a short period of time, which improves the overall game development efficiency.
NExT Photogrammetry Lab: Studio-grade scanning environment that supports xFaceBuilder® digital character production pipeline developed in-house. xFaceBuilder® uses superb algorithm optimization and convenient tools to increase the efficiency of high-fidelity human face production and create a film-grade, flexible process that includes modeling, binding, and animation.
- 150 Canon SLR cameras
- 16 Professional Photography Lamps
- Supports up to 16K high-resolution texture
High-Fidelity Eyelash Geometry Reconstruction
- With the help of eyelash capturing and image separation technology, we can accurately render the eyelash on digital human faces, significantly improving the quality and efficiency of custom digital human face reconstruction. The related research result "EyelashNet: A Dataset and A Baseline Method for Eyelash Matting" was included in the Technical Paper by SIGGRAPH Asia in 2021.

Digital character eyelash
- Real-time garment simulation method for loose-fitting garments enhances the real-time animation quality and artistic expression of digital human and game character costumes. The related research result, "Predicting Loose-Fitting Garment Deformations Using Bone-Driven Motion Networks," was accepted by SIGGRAPH in 2022.
