PANASONIC Augmented Reality 3D Prototype


Fortune-500 companies come to Digital Double for assistance in producing state of the art prototypes. Panasonic came to us for assistance producing an innovative 3D tabletop augmented-reality display. The application included real-time parallax technology using special eye-wear and Kinect detection.

We generated a number of art pieces that allowed them to simulate an Augmented 3D GPS navigational paradigm. This allowed users to virtually enter popular stores in downtown France and shop for brand-name retail products.

SUMO SUMMIT App Development


Digital Double creates Sumo Summit App! While we usually finds ourselves busy developing games for other studios, Sumo Summit was squeezed in between projects. It's our first IP developed all in-house. This free iOS app explores a new visual art style and game design approach meant to relax the player, not stress them. Give it a try for free on the iOS app store while it's still in Alpha; it works on all iOS devices. Digital Double produced everything from scratch, including the code, engine, art and music.

Click on the link below to find it on the App Store and visit www.sumosummit.com to leave us your feedback after playing the game.

SHARK WEEK App of the Week


When Smashing Ideas came to us asking for assistance in producing a top of the line app for Discovery's Shark Week program, we knew we had a challenge ahead of us. Not only did we have to create digital doubles of dozens of sharks, but we also had to create anatomical diagrams for each, featuring muscle and organ layers.

The study of anatomy is one of the things we do for fun, so the challenge was ripe for the taking. Over the course of two months, we assembled a team of six artists and generated dozens of shark replicas. Soon after its release, Apple featured it as their App of the Week and it was praised by reviewers as a graphical accomplishment.

WIZARDS OF THE COAST


Wizards of the Coast approached Digital Double to help them explore 3D character development for use within their cinematic art production pipelines. We got to work closely with Wizard's concept artist to develop a 3D version of Elspeth, entirely from scratch.

While we prefer to leverage internal assets developed form our Digital Double library, it's not unusual for clients to want works that they can claim entirely as their own, including moral rights to the work; for unlimited future use. In such cases, we'll develop everything from scratch and assign all rights to the customer, including source files and documentation on how to operate them. This was the case for Wizards.

NORRIS FREDERICK Digital Double

Our raw 3D scan data has come a long way here at Digital Double. When Olympic hopeful Norris Frederick approached us interested in getting his digital double made, we took this as an opportunity to test out new scanning and fusing pipelines that render very clean raw scan topology and texture data that you could take into most 3D applications and use as a great starting point for your characters or digital sculptures.

Norris spent an hour with us at the studio and these images show the result.

3D SCANNING Laser / Optical

Digital Double is a one of the only quality providers of optical/laser-based 3D scanning services in the Seattle area.

Recently we've applied new methods for fusing and creating watertight raw 3D scan data. Our data is incredibly smooth and realistic. We can also create animateable (edge looped) versions of the models ready for your production pipeline. We can generate the model, uv's and even convert the highly detailed point-cloud data into texture data for real-time optimization.

DANCING WITH LIGHT Performing Arts

In 2010, Digital Double produced a work titled “Dancing With Light” in collaboration with Melissa Farrar (dancer & choreographer). The work was featured in the 2010 and 2011 Digital Art Festivals and broke new ground in the field of the performing arts.

In this piece we explored a blend of dance, motion capture and special effects to create an analog augmented reality experience for live audiences that required no glasses or displays.

We did all the motion capture in our studio in Redmond.

Our Redmond mocap studio is convenient to Seattle, Bellevue and Kirkland, within close proximity to numerous video game studios including Microsoft, Bungie, Valve, Nintendo, and others.

What's unique about our service is that our fourteen (14) camera volume is completely markerless, which allows performers to walk in on a moment's notice and start generating usable motion capture data. We'll even work with indies on an hourly rate. Just click on RFP's above to learn about our rates and how to schedule a session.

CNC MANUFACTURING 3D Aided Design

Classic Foundry approached Digital Double seeking assistance with a life size statue to be manufactured with a CNC machine. After we 3D scanned the artist's base clay sculpture, we took it into ZBrush and carefully integrated additional details based on the art direction provided by the artist. This mesh was then exported into a format they could read with their CNC machine, and voila, a large wooden statue emerged.

The sculpture features a life size rendition of the Holy Family commissioned by a church in Seattle.

PHOTOS FOR ARTISTS Create Derivative Works!


Over the last ten years, Digital Double has produced an impressive library of photographs and devoted countless hours to sifting, sorting and tagging thousands of images.

Internally we have amassed close to 20,000 photographs and released close to 5,000 of these on our online storefront, and continue to release more as time permits. Unlike most royalty-free services, these images are meant for studios and artists to use as points of departure for their creations. Creating derivative works from a random image found online is illegal but our library allows you to modify and manipulate to your heart’s content and still own the copyright of the resulting work.
