Head scans in the Los Angeles area?
« on: May 08, 2014, 02:07:13 AM »
Does anyone know if there are any high end, photogrammetry, face scanning systems in the Los Angeles area that are open for business?

Thanks in advance!

Gentle Giant are located in LA and have been in the business just about forever.  There are others with differing levels of ability, Googling can find them pretty easily.  What is your planned use for these models?  Would help to know to make suggestions.

JR00t,

I have a high end mobile photogrammetry scanning service in LA.  I can PM you with my contact info and    send you more information about our services.

If your looking for high-end solution, can't beat the ICT Lightstage... google it, but prepare to spend some $$$$

Thanks for the suggestions thus far. We are aware of ICT and Giant, but we are specifically looking for a high end photogrammetry set up for its ability to capture a facial expression instantly. While Gentle Giant and ICT are both very reputable vendors, their acquisition times would be too slow for our needs.

Really? Isn't performance capture one of the things ICT is really good at? For example one of their older papers: http://gl.ict.usc.edu/Research/CFPC/

I guess they're a little bit north of LA but I hear ILM has a pretty good rig too.  ;)

ICT's setup is photogrammetry-based, they wrote all their own software for it. You may be confusing their reflectance field capturing, which does require holding still for awhile, with a purely geometric scan, which is instantaneous. Others who have worked with them more recently said that they do indeed do scanning of full FACS poses.
