YouUp is a Ubisoft’s project, which I’ve been working on for the past 3 years. First as CG Artist / R&D with the real-time tracking technology and the internal 3d engine, also as Modeler/Mapping for the first assets we have made and finally as a TD Artist (designing features, tools, workflow, techniques, assets production pipeline, training graphic team, and so on).
It’s been a long way since then, this is the really beginning of this kind of technology, a lot more will come out of our work beside youup (so I hope).
For now you can download YouUp Windows Live Messenger version, which is a special version we brought with a Microsoft paternship. Download it here : http://www.ilovemessenger.fr/youup
You can also watch this interview (it’s in french, but you can only watch it, what they say is not that important, I appear in the end, that’s the important part )
