Renderpeople

Booth number 1.8

Renderpeople is a team of specialists in the fields of photogrammetry, visualizations and measuring techniques. The team unites one goal: to simplify the digital workflow of using highly-detailed human 3d models for architectural visualizations. The team members know the post-production-problems of renderings from many previous projects: there is hardly any time for the time-consuming integration of 2d content. This is obviously a huge issue because humans are one of the most important components when it comes to the overall quality of the visualization.

Renderpeople’s goal is to reduce the effort of integrating humans significantly by providing the biggest library of ready-posed 3d people. More than 350 of them are already available in the Renderpeople library; more than 10.000 RAW scans are waiting to be processed. Besides that, the Renderpeople team is currently working on the next big project: animating human 3D models with motion capturing data.
