Unity Technologies has released a short film showing the new possibilities for rendering photorealistic digital people live. The technical demo was first seen by participants in the Game Developers Conference.
The two-minute presentation, titled Enemies, revolves around a middle-aged man. The developers focused on a new solution in the implementation of hair strands, as well as photorealistic skin and eyes.
The unit last year acquired Siva Dynamics and Veta Digital, which provided technology for the Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.
Attendees of the Game Developers Conference 2022 can view the demo in the Unity Booth in the showroom and see it in action in the Engine Editor.
The unit announced that the Digital Human 2 pack will release a number of upgrades and updates used to build enemies. “One or two months”. Additionally, GitHub offers the ability to create hair strands at the same time.
The company added: “Most enhancements to Unity, whether born or used directly by enemies, already exist in Unity 2021.2 or will be released in 2022.1 or 2022.2”.
