Input Image Requirements
GHOST MANNEQUIN SHOT
A ghost mannequin image of the garment is required. This image of the garment is what we will primarily use to process the
GARMENT_2Dasset. Ghost mannequin images can either be the front or the back view of the garment.
Note that front view garment image are intended to work with front view avatars and vice versa (back view garment images and avatars) for a realistic result.
What is a Ghost Mannequin Image?
The ghost mannequin is also known as invisible mannequin, 3D mannequin or hollow man.
It is a post-production technique for apparel product photography.
Brief Guide to Preparing a Ghost Mannequin Image
Take a photograph of a garment on a mannequin.
[Optional: only if parts are hidden] Take one or multiple of the parts the garment that were covered by the mannequin (e.g. collar backside, cuffs of the sleeves, etc.)
In Post-processing, remove the mannequin of the first image and reconstruct the hidden parts using the images captured in step 2.
A detailed guide is available here.
Although providing reference images is optional, it is encouraged to submit them because it helps us ensure the accuracy of the garment’s overall fit.
(Optional) Tech Packs for Size Recommendation & Visualisation
To enable size recommendation & visualisation, we require sizing tables which are usually part of the tech packs of a garment. Since these come in different forms, please send us an example, so we can make sure that we can work with them.
