What is 3D Character Scanning?

3D Character Scanning is the process of using Photogrammetry to produce hyper-accurate, full-body or head and shoulders scans of real world Artistes.

This high resolution, 3-dimensional scan can then be used to populate digital environments with ease, as well as with astonishing detail and accuracy.

Working with Uni-versal Extras grants you unfiltered access to the UK & Ireland’s Largest Database of Artistes, and a selection of hundreds of thousands.




The art and science of extracting 3D information from photographs.

The process involves taking overlapping photographs of an object, structure or space and converting them into 2D or 3D digital models.
