Each 3D scan is manually scanned on-site with proprietary hardware in a controlled environment. The geometry is then manually processed with over 200 steps of cleaning, reconstructing, retopologizing, UV mapping, LOD:ing, baking and quality checking. The entire process requires about 6 days of manual labor per asset.
Onsite at a scan location in Australia - A range of diverse areas are explored for interesting subjects.
Megascans revolves around premium quality scans, and so it is of paramount importance that the full dynamic range of the source data is retained throughout the processing pipeline and that the albedo is captured in such a way that it is completely flat and shadow free, to avoid the need for destructive post-processing at all costs.
