Publisher description for GenHead

GenHead program icon

GenHead is standalone software tool that is designed to enable both professional and amateur digital content artists to quickly and easily create 3D heads from 2D digital photographs. GenHead then guides you through the process of turning your photos into a 3D head, so no experience is necessary. First of all you load the photos in, there is a preview so you can check you've got the right ones. Next GenHead prompts you to correct any problems with the images in order to get the best possible result. You can correct their orientation and you may adjust the brightness and colour Balance. After that, GenHead asks you to place a series of markers around the face. An active Help window shows you where to place each marker, making it a simple process. A new window is automatically loaded in which you will see your original 2D front and profile images in their own pane, and a seperate pane with the newly generated 3D head. This whole process takes just a few minutes, then GenHead will generate the 3D head. See our tutorial for more information on this process. At this point GenHead gives a you a number of tools with which to modify the geometry and texture to a high level of detail. The shape and the texture mapping can be altered together or independently, delivering quick results and the flexibilty to get the head exactly right. The 3D preview immediately updates as you make changes so you can see the effects those changes. The preview mesh can be shown in various modes; including a new high-quality mode where the bump and specular maps are also rendered. GenHead automatically generates a bump map from the images you have given it. GenHead can generate left or right Symmetric, or assymetric heads where the symmetry of the shape and texture can be set independently. See the tutorial to learn more about how you can edit in GenHead to produce the results you want. When you are happy with the 3D head you have create, you can export it in a variety of formats:
