As Artificial Intelligence has taken a giant shift in technology, Epic Games, with the help of said advancements, has come up with a brand new way to make humans more humanly in their newest software tool called “MetaHuman Creator.” Since 3D characters have become the new standard to weigh any new or impending tech-related content, particularly in the field of realistic-looking humans, a big portion of time and energy has been invested into this department. As confirmed by the Epic Games’ Vice President Vladimir Mastilovic, “After decades of research and development, and thanks to bringing companies like 3Lateral, Cubic Motion, and Quixel into the Epic family, that barrier is being erased through Unreal Engine, and we’re thrilled to introduce MetaHuman Creator.”
This powerful tool, rendered under the Unreal Engine and its support, is all set to turn the tables to bring more clarity and a deep virtual experience for the users. The company has been promoting this extraordinary software on YouTube by placing their unique characters under the spotlight to explain the variety of animations and details tethered with their exterior and facial movements.
The company particularly focuses on the ease with which these characters could be assembled and dressed. Another feature added by Epic in this software is that of Manipulation. According to the software and its extensive flexibilities, a user can easily play with these convincing characters over just a web browser. Currently, the mission to form a convincing human face has been accomplished, but there is still a long way to go as adding motion algorithms to the bodies of such characters for a video game requires real-time action.
It is still unclear when Epic Games will release MetaHuman Creators, but the expected date is very soon.
