Wild Capture's Cohort Fashion technology for Digital Humans and Volumetric Video
With it's ongoing development and demonstration of its new Cohort Fashion for volumetric video, Cohort Fashion is being offered as part of Wild Capture's Digital Human Platform. Cohort Fashion applies CG Cloth to volumetric video assets as an interactive CG cloth with lifelike performance and physics. Digital dresses, pants, shoes and jewelry can all be utilized in 3D spaces and then modified for customization onto each digital character.
Cohort Fashion helps create next level volumetric solutions by creating CG fabric in 3D virtual spaces and solving the necessary volumetric character interaction to create lifelike realism. Also adding logos or designs for art direction and product placement and the ability to adjust cloth dimensions and attributes, your unique character models can be exported to your preferred simulation pipeline, like Maya, Houdini or Unreal. All digital fabric is created from traditional CG Cloth design tools, then applied and adjusted for collisions and real world physics.
