Derived from high-resolution body scans, Michael 5 allows characters with different heads, body shapes, genders, ages and races to be morphed and mixed, providing an unmatched platform for limitless character creation. High-resolution photo-realistic skin texture maps showcasing irregularities such as pores, freckles, veins, age and muscle striations produce stunning levels of realism.
