How Eisko Makes Realistic Digital Doubles?

Are you interested in creating a lifelike digital double? Look no further! In this article, we will guide you through the process of making realistic 3D human that can be used in various applications such as movies, video games, AR, VR, and more. At Eisko, we specialize in 3D technology and offer top-notch solutions for creating stunning digital humans. Let’s dive in!


3D Scans: The Foundation of Realism

To achieve unparalleled realism, it is essential to start with excellent professional 3D scans. At Eisko, we utilize state-of-the-art 3D scanning technologies to capture ultra-high-definition geometry, ensuring a detailed and accurate representation of the subject. These scans serve as the foundation for creating lifelike digital doubles, like Margot Robbie in the movie “I, Tonya”.

We employ both photogrammetry and structured light technologies for body scans, capturing the subject’s appearance and physical attributes. For head scans, we utilize photometry, which allows us to generate ultra-high-quality Physically-Based Rendering (PBR) textures. These textures simulate the real physical effects of the skin, resulting in a highly realistic and believable 3D humans.

At Eisko, we understand that capturing not only the appearance but also the expressivity of the subject is essential for achieving an accurate rig later on. That’s why our cutting-edge 3D scanning technologies go beyond capturing mere geometry. We pay meticulous attention to capturing the unique expressivities and facial movements of the subject during the scanning process. By incorporating these nuanced details into the digital double, our expert riggers can create custom rigs that faithfully replicate the original subject’s emotions and facial expressions. This meticulous approach ensures that the digital twin exudes a lifelike quality, making it truly immersive and realistic in every way.

Our photometry 3D scanner is renowned for its accuracy and reliability, making it a preferred choice not only for entertainment purposes but also for cosmetic companies conducting research and development. Its ability to provide precise and authentic representations makes it invaluable for capturing the intricacies of human features.


Advanced Rigging: Bringing Expressivity to Life

To truly bring your digital double to life, an advanced rig is crucial. Our team of expert riggers at Eisko specializes in creating custom rigs that are tailored to each individual subject. These rigs are based on Facial Action Coding System (FACS) blendshapes, which are a standardized set of facial expressions and movements.

FACS blendshapes allow us to recreate the subject’s unique expressivity captured during the 3D scanning process. By incorporating these expressions into the rig, we ensure that the 3D character accurately reflects the original subject’s facial movements and emotions. This level of fidelity contributes to the overall realism and believability of the digital double.

Creating a realistic digital double goes beyond capturing appearance and expressivity—it also involves providing animators with a seamless and efficient rigging experience. At Eisko, we understand the importance of adaptability across different platforms and animation software such as Maya, Unreal Engine, and more. Our expert riggers specialize in developing custom rigs that are tailored to each specific platform, ensuring compatibility and ease of use for animators. By providing an accurate rig that is user-friendly, we empower animators to bring the digital double to life with natural movements and realistic performances. This attention to detail and platform adaptability are the secrets to achieving a truly lifelike and convincing virtual human.

By combining cutting-edge technology and meticulous attention to detail, our rigging process guarantees an accurate faithfulness to the subject’s original expressivities. This attention to detail sets our digital doubles apart, making them truly lifelike and immersive.



Creating realistic digital doubles requires a combination of advanced 3D scanning techniques and expert rigging. At Eisko, we pride ourselves on providing top-notch solutions for achieving unparalleled realism in digital human creation.

Starting with professional 3D scans, we capture ultra-high-definition geometry and utilize photometry to generate high-quality PBR textures. This attention to detail ensures that our digital doubles accurately simulate the physical effects of real skin, resulting in lifelike appearances.

Furthermore, our custom rigs, based on FACS blendshapes, enable us to recreate the subject’s original expressivities, capturing their unique facial movements and emotions. This level of fidelity adds an extra layer of realism, making our 3D models truly immersive.
