MetaHuman Creator Preview – The Future of Video Game Characters?

Epic just released their rather neat MetaHuman Creator in Early Access which offers and we quote: “a new tool that will empower anyone to create a bespoke photorealistic digital human, fully rigged and complete with hair and clothing, in a matter of minutes.” We had a quick look and came away very impressed with the creation process. Whilst games like The Last of Us Part II already offer high quality photorealistic models, MetaHuman allows anyone to create new characters with relative ease using similar tools seen in other creation programs. Take a look at our video which provides a basic overview of what you can do with the current early access version.

Bringing compelling real-time digital humans to life is incredibly challenging and time-consuming. It can take months of research, costly scanning equipment, and an army of tech artists. What if we could make the process radically simpler, faster, and more scalable—without compromising on quality? We’re excited to introduce MetaHuman Creator, a new tool that will empower anyone to create a bespoke photorealistic digital human, fully rigged and complete with hair and clothing, in a matter of minutes.
