Market Desk (New York): Leading photogrammetry developer Capturing Reality’s software to be integrated into Unreal Engine ecosystem; New and existing customers will continue to be supported.
Today we are thrilled to announce that Capturing Reality, creator of RealityCapture, the state-of-the-art photogrammetric software for 3D scans has joined the Epic Games family. Capturing Reality’s software is able to reconstruct objects and scenes of any size from images or from laser scans, yielding 3D scans with unparalleled accuracy and mesh quality at speeds many times faster than competing software.
Photogrammetry involves stitching together multiple photos or laser scans of real-life objects to create 3D models. The method can help studio developers create photorealistic assets in a fraction of the time it would take to create a similar 3D asset.
Epic Games hopes to use the Capturing Reality team expertise to help improve their own 3D scans of environments and objects. The company also dropped the price of Capturing Reality’s services, dropping the perpetual license fee and the terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
