Lighting for head scan: strobe vs continuous

I am planning a 40-camera head photogrammetry shoot. We will be using Esper ShutterCells for wired trigger, Smartshooter for file transfer, and Nikon d7200 for the cameras.

Does anyone have any suggestions in choosing strobe lighting vs continuous led?

During our first shoot (just the face with 16 cameras) we used three Kinos for continuous light. Results were very good, only one of our model scans turned out rough due to sweat from heat from light boxes.

Any opinions or insights appreciated!

A strobe (flash) can get considerably brighter than a continuous light. That allows you to stop your cameras (DSLR) way down thereby increasing depth of field. In that case, I would say strobes are preferred. In my case however, I need continuous light because our scanner is made up of machine vision cameras for animated faces. For this we use Arri Sky Panels.
