About Volumetric Video:

The “3D Human Body Reconstruction (3DHBR)” technology of the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI is being used for the first time a joint test production with UFA/UFA LAB. The result is the fully immersive film and volumetric virtual reality experience “GATEWAY TO INFINITY”.

This innovative reconstruction method makes it possible to generate dynamic 3D models of people, which appear natural, going far beyond the conventional animation of virtual characters. In this test production, the 3D models were created based on real actors so that gestures, facial expressions and textures (skin, hair and fabric) could be recorded in detail. This made the lifelike reconstruction of facial expressions and moving clothes possible. The 3D models of people were subsequently integrated into a virtual scene. Viewers with virtual reality glasses can therefore view these virtualised people at very close range and from various perspectives. Thus the viewer is immersed directly in the scene, experiencing the story close up and personally. This level of immersion and virtual experience is entirely new.
