Volucap’s Studio is located on 1830 square feet (170 sq meters) in the FX Center within Studio Babelsberg. The almost 13 feet (4 meter) high light rotunda is equipped with a minimum of 32 cameras that capture every movement and facial expression from a 360° perspective. Inside the room, people and objects can be scanned three-dimensionally and lifelike. Recordings are later transformed into structured and animated 3D surfaces by intelligent software algorithms. Eventually, filmed subjects can be placed into any AR, MR, VR, 360, or 2D video/web application on a variety of devices — such as phones, holographic headsets, and Windows Mixed Reality Immersive Headsets. Furthermore, 4D People are perfectly suited to be used in conventional 3D renderings of any kind, whether architectural visualization, product visualization, virtual production or visual effects.
4D People clients therefore range from the cinematic industry to professionally commissioned productions in areas including healthcare, architecture, engineering, construction, automotive, and the gaming industry.
Volucaps portfolio includes recordings for high-end feature film productions like “Matrix Resurrections” and experiences including musicians like “Die Fantastischen Vier” and “The BossHoss”, fashion designer Lana Müller and basketball sports legend and team captain of the Bonner Baskets, Josh Mayo. It also includes the tagesschau 2025 experience which shows the future of news as well as important contemporary witnesses for preserving history for future generations and more.
4D People enable the dawn of a new era where authentic digital people become a reality and digital environments become more vivid and realistic.
Renderpeople CEO Lukas Lamprecht emphasizes: “Thanks to the fast and continuous advancement of technology, the demand for realism and authenticity of 3D moving images is becoming greater every year. It is in these two aspects that 4D People models far surpass anything that has been used before. Implemented in a 3D scene, the 4D People are perceived as real, but at the same time bring with them the many advantages and flexibility of using 3D assets.”
“Thanks to Volucap’s world-leading quality and Renderpeoples’ leadership in distributing realistic human 3D assets, 4D People are a new product that finally meets the demand of being able to use authentic real three-dimensional people with motion as stock footage for projects.” says Volucaps CEO, Sven Bliedung von der Heide.
