The 3D Scanning Session

Medusa Visual Effects; 3D Scanning Session Tips and Tricks to make your output data better!
All Natural
Facial oil or excessive make up can cause people’s skin to be reflective. Reflection will create noise (bounce back) in 3D scans. For this reason, using a powder make up foundation and applying it to the face before 3D scanning will give the skin a tone matte (Dulling) appearance and even out the skin color.

Jewelry
The Scanner cannot pick up anything that is reflective, glass, mirrors or chrome, ie.… necklaces, bracelets and earrings. However, if you have a piece of jewelry that’s difficult to remove – don’t worry about it, we’ll be able to work around it…

Hair
Most scanners do not read hair so in order for us to fill in the area, the model is required to wear a Wig Cap (wig caps will be provided by MedusaVFX). Reference photos will be taken of the model after the scanning session with their hair down as well as in their wig cap.

Movement
Minimizing movement as much as possible will produce a much better scan. 3D scanning takes a certain amount of time and movement affects the scan quality. People have a tendency to move just by breathing alone.
Look at it this way, a 3D scanner is basically like being recorded on a video. The best thing is to relax, take a deep breath and hold it, and breath slightly through your nose. The Scan Tech will do a count down from 3, 2, 1 allowing the model to have a couple of seconds to get ready.

If you have any questions please email us at sales@medusafx.com.
