Their arguments are based on seen Making Of various movies and video games, and have been hard to me to find arguments to convince him otherwise.
I think Making Of are sensationalist and only shows the nice part.
I have experience modeling and rigging characters and I know the importance of a clean mesh topology for a correct behavior of the character animation, and i think there is not magic scanners that can replace modeler yet.
I did a hard research before posting, trying to find arguments, examples of workflows from big companies, but i couldn't find anything valuable.
Would be a pleasure to hear your comments...
