Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Can UE use real photos for character creation?

I am new to UE, and wonder if I can create more photo realistic characters. Here is the high level idea

  1. I take photos from an athlete (from multiple angles/perspectives)

  2. I create characters (like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo-c7t_Fb_0)

  3. Step 2 can create 'normal' robotic-ish characters, but I would like to improve it to be more 'human' by somehow merging information from Step 1 into the characters.

Is there a known existing technique to achieve this?

  • If so, any pointer to the tutorial/starter point?

  • If not, any suggestion toward a solution like that?

If you are asking "Can I take some pictures and put them in the Unreal Engine 4 and it make me a model that is animation ready?" Well... the short answer is this: No. Unreal Engine is not a modeling software.

That being said, if you WANT to simply use iClone's Character Creator for making your models (using pictures to help), and then you want lifelike animations, you may want to start off with a little something called MoCap (Motion Capture) animations.

Here is an introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm-A1lknrxE

Hope this helps!
