Many shooting tasks of film and television dramas require special customization, and the amount is generally relatively small; this demand is innately compatible with the rapid prototyping of small batches of non-standard parts that 3d printing is good at. Therefore, the application of 3D printing in film and television is developing very rapidly, and foreign cases are not uncommon.
From Hollywood to Bollywood, from fantasy dramas to cartoons, 3D printing technology has gradually penetrated into all aspects of the film and television industry. Take Marvel movies as an example. The prop scenes of many movies are made with 3D printing technology and are presented to customers. Below, the editor of Anet combines the experience of 3d printing technology in recent years to talk about the citation of 3d printing technology in the film and television industry.
3D printing technology is mainly applied to props in film and television, especially visually. It is the art of the crew, especially “clothing, makeup, and props”, referred to as “fuhuadao”. Provide various design, modeling and manufacturing services through 3d scanning, 3d modeling and 3d printing digital technology to create more faithful to the original work.
The application of 3d printing technology in props is mainly to save time and material costs. Because of traditional manufacturing methods, mud, wood, foam, silicone and other materials are used for modeling. These props often have rough surfaces, simple shapes, few details, and long production cycles, especially for fantasy movies. The use of 3d printing technology to make props, first of all, the production process is short, not to mention that the crew can save a lot of time, and secondly, there is almost no limitation of complexity. Texture.
3D printing technology puts on makeup for character modeling. Special styling is often required during film and television shooting. For example, the eternal classic-“Journey to the West” is a styling made under extremely difficult conditions. The hair on Monkey King’s face is glued on, and Zhu Bajie’s body and face are both Silicone clothes and masks.
But now, by combining 3d scanning and 3d printing technology, it is very convenient and effective to collect actor’s body data, and use body data as the basis; through digitalization to liberate creativity, and then output through 3d printing technology, not only can create more realistic shots As a result, celebrities can also suffer less.
The use of 3d printing technology in clothing and apparel can create an environmental atmosphere. The special feature is that clothing and apparel have wearable requirements. Usually, the production needs to integrate the three methods mentioned above, both direct and indirect, and 3D scanning is required.
For example, the movie “Legend of Conferred Gods” Douban scored 2.9 points, and was complained as a bad film. The stylist Zhang Shuping cast his breath on the 3D printing body and complained about Fan Bingbing’s “chicken frame” head, saying that 3D printing was laborious and time-consuming . The editor of Anet wants to say that this is wrong 3d printing technology, and what he needs is a complete set of digital modeling and 3d printer manufactur solutions, not just the gimmick of 3d printing.
