Epic Games is launching a tool that lowers the barriers to creating digital humans. Be prepared for a wave of photorealistic humans at your service.
Epic Games is planning to launch a software later this year named MetaHuman Creator. It allows building photorealistic humans to be more accessible, more efficient, save labour costs, and provide more time for innovators to think about the narratives than replaceable technology manipulation. The cloud-streamed app designed to take real-time digital human creation from weeks or months to less than an hour, without compromising on quality.
The software, which looks similar to The Sims Creator, comes with digital human presets that innovators can build on top of. It works by drawing from an ever-growing library of variants of human appearance and motion, and enabling you to create convincing new characters through intuitive workflows that let you sculpt and craft the result you want. It can also be exported in ready-to-animate file extensions, which can give you a seamless transition to bring your digital human to life. For creators, this tool will be the infrastructure of building digital humans.

How will MetaHuman Creator impact the society? Much like Adobe, we think this tool will become a common skill. More people will be trying to build their own digital humans, which means in the near future, you will see them more often in every setting you can think of that requires human interactions.
This is tool is the start of a new world, where real and virtual humans co-exist. Are you ready for a hybrid human society?
