Selfie to MetaHuman

General / 01 July 2022

I thought I'd go through the steps to make myself a MetaHuman one Friday afternoon.

Step1. Spin around in my office chair in front of my camera on a tripod with a remote in my hand. Took 150 photos at three different heights.

Step2. Process photos into a mesh in Metashape.

Step3. Reduce, align, wrap another topo around it. I think the only one of these steps that was required was to align it. I wasn't keen to bring in a super high mesh to Unreal though.

Step4. Mesh to MetaHuman Identity alignment in Unreal.

Step5. Customize in MHC.. add sweet hair.
