Creating fun, stylized avatars with the Big Stage Avatar Platform is easy. The style of choice for casual games is typically a 2Dor 3D cartoon avatar. Knowing this, we set out to alter our core technology - not simply to toon-shade the photorealistic avatar we create, but to provide a rich variety of style choices. Because ease-of-use and speed is critical to the casual game user experience , we have employed a new “Any Photo” system, enabling users to use any photograph as a starting point to build their avatar.
Avatars for core games could range from styled to photorealistic. Depending on the look and feel of your game, you can elect to use either the advanced stereo 3-photo Big Stage system or the new “Any Photo” system. Both systems are tightly integrated into leading game engines, and can be easily incorporated into any video game.
The Big Stage photoreal avatars are perfectly suited for the serious games category. Placing personalized, photorealistic avatars into virtual training, education, virtual conferencing and messaging applications is a must have and will significantly drive up the value of any serious games application.
These types of hyper-realistic virtual world environments typically demand that a user accurately represent themselves. Users can take photographs of themselves using a standard camera or in some cases the user may have access to our HD Stereo Kiosk which utilizes proprietary hardware to make a high definition avatar. Either way, users will have the ability to create a photorealistic avatar of themselves in seconds, fully animated and ready for lifelike virtual simulations.
Implementing our Avatar Platform inside of a game engine is a straightforward process. Using your engine’s default system as a guide, we define the head format, customize the translation engine and support the complete platform integration.
