At The Scan Truck, we’ve mastered the intricate journey from raw scan data to polished, game-ready assets. Our data processing pipeline is a well-oiled machine, designed to transform complex scans into assets that seamlessly integrate into your gaming projects.

Here’s a glimpse into our data processing workflow:

1. Scan Data Acquisition: We start by capturing high-quality scan data using our cutting-edge equipment, including 3D scanners and photogrammetry systems. Whether it’s capturing physical objects or environments, our expertise ensures precision and detail.

2. Data Cleanup: Raw scan data can be dense and unrefined. Our skilled technicians meticulously clean and prepare the data, removing noise, artifacts, and imperfections to ensure a clean foundation.

3. Retopology: This crucial step involves creating a new, optimized 3D mesh (game-ready asset) with a lower polygon count. This not only reduces computational overhead but also ensures smooth performance in games.

4. UV Unwrapping: Proper UV mapping is essential for textures to adhere seamlessly to the 3D model. Our UV unwrapping process ensures efficient texture application.

5. Optimization for Specific Game Engines: We tailor the asset for your chosen game engine, be it Unreal Engine, Unity, or another. This optimization ensures that the asset seamlessly integrates with the engine’s rendering and physics systems, maximizing performance and visual fidelity.

6. Texture and Material Mapping: Our artists apply high-quality textures and materials to bring life to the 3D model, capturing every detail and nuance.

7. Rigging and Animation (if needed): For character models, rigging and animation are integrated to make them interactive and dynamic within the gaming environment.

8. Quality Assurance: Rigorous testing and quality assurance checks ensure that the final game-ready asset meets the highest industry standards, free from glitches or issues.

9. Delivery: Depending on your needs, we can deliver a fully optimized asset ready for your chosen game engine, or we can provide a high-poly hero-level asset to hand over to a studio with its own pipeline. Your project’s requirements are our priority.

Our unique pipeline can specifically cater to our clients’ particular needs while also maintaining top industry-level quality and accuracy.

Our data processing expertise is more than just a service; it’s a commitment to delivering assets that enhance your gaming experience. Whether you need an asset optimized for a specific game engine or a high-poly hero-level asset to collaborate with other studios, trust The Scan Truck to turn your scan data into immersive, game-ready assets that captivate players and bring your vision to life.
