Scan Engine, a spinoff of world-class VFX studio Unit Images, boasts an impressive track record of 3D scans for VFX projects, including notable titles like Terminator: Dark Fate, Love, Death and Robots or The Killer. Drawing from this extensive experience, we are well-equipped to deliver cutting-edge, high-quality 3D models tailored to enhance the visual effects in your movies or series.

Our team is used to working with VFX studios from all over the world such as MPC, Weta Digital, Mac Guff or Buf. We understand the constraints and needs of VFX pipelines and film production in general and are able to communicate effectively with supervisors, directors, producers to ensure a seamless experience and timely deliveries.

Adaptable 3D human models for films and series

Our flexibility shines through in our ability to create models based on any given topology, offering comprehensive deliveries that encompass both high and low-poly versions of the asset, along with all texture information meticulously captured during the scanning process. We understand the importance of accommodating your unique constraints and production framework, ensuring that our 3D scanned assets seamlessly align with your guidelines and expectations.

Our proven track record in the industry includes collaborations on projects such as The Substance (2024), Cuckoo (2024), Under Paris (2024) David Fincher’s The Killer (2023), Love, Death and Robots: Beyond the Aquila Rift, Love, Death and Robots Vol2: Snow in the Desert (2021), The Substance (2023), Astérix et Obélix: L’Empire du Milieu (2023), Titane (2021), Lupin (2023), and The Serpent Queen (2022). These credits underscore our ability to deliver exceptional 3D scans for VFX projects.

Complete digital human creation

From raw data to final assets, we offer comprehensive support for the entire digital human creation process. Our capabilities encompass the scanning of full-body characters, complete with clothing and wrapped FACS expressions seamlessly integrated into your base mesh topology. The package can also include spline-based hair solutions, and our meticulous manual retopologizing of clothing ensures optimal deformations, elevating the overall quality of your character assets.


Whether for quality issues or the comfort of actors, we are increasingly working with SFX companies that wish to 3D print a faithful version of their actors. We have had the opportunity to collaborate on projects such as The Substance, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Lupin to provide makeup bases necessary for creating incredible prosthetics!

With 3D printing, it is no longer necessary to go through the tedious process of plaster molding, which greatly simplifies and speeds up the process.

The character Assane in Lupin makes his own prosthetics and makeup!
