Increasingly, forensic CGI is being used to assist Juries to visualise sequence of events, evidence of hypothesis or interpretation of a complex action or incident. Using skilled technicians Acumé Forensic can construct forensically accurate CGI.

  • Weapon or tool reconstruction – murder weapon or broken implement reconstructed.
  • Implement fit between wounds and weapon – does the weapon actually fit the mark.
  • Disaster or battle scene reconstruction – used for air crash investigation to detail routes and events pre-incident of to show movements.
  • Medical operation or tool visualisation – from plans to tool identifying if it will work, is the design suitable before the tooling and application stage.

Realistic avatar

The series of events around sustaining an injury can be critical to a court case. At Acumé Forensic we create pathology body map constructions and realistic 3D avatars for law enforcement. Body maps create a rendered visual of injuries, mapping post-mortem or other various traumatic injuries on to a 3D avatar. This method ensures suitability for viewers, without the potential shock hazards caused by real explicit imagery. A 3D visualisation also helps focus the jury on the injuries, without the potential negative effects caused by a photograph.

Another benefit of making use of 3D avatars and softwares is that Acumé Forensic technicians are able to render points of focus from different angles. This ensures maximum control over what is presented in court, whether it has been produced as a standalone series of graphics or as part of a more complex EPE.

All forensic body mapping is checked as accurate by the properly qualified medical practitioner conducting the initial investigation.

Crime scene reconstruction

Crime scene reconstruction is the process of reconstructing a digital version of a real world object from pictures or scans of the object. This may be a single room or a whole building, street or area, constructed to show evidence placement. Potential architectural applications include people and vehicle movement, bottlenecks, sea floor mapping etc.

The possibilities of 3D crime scene construction is broad and flexible, used in court to visualise and reconstruct a crime scene using 3D modelling and animation with supporting graphics. 3D crime scene reconstruction is an engaging way of presenting complex information to the jury into a format that is clear, concise and easy to digest. The CGI is constructed and produced as an interactive virtual world, fly through or graphic or series of graphics to aid the court, and is supplied as a standalone sequence or series of graphics as a standalone tool or as part of a more complex EPE of all the evidence. The EPE must be presented in an Electronic Courtroom to maximise its full evidential potential and ensure that all the information contained in it is fully understood by all.

Virtual and interactive tour

Acumé Forensic have expert forensic technicians at disposal to reconstruct interactive crime scenes for a pre-determined fly-through or an interactive tour. A virtual tour enables an operator to trigger events on direction from counsel and simulate a fly-through of the scene, rotating, panning and zooming. This is done through hand-held controls which can be used to move through the constructed virtual world.

Virtual and interactive tours aid in providing clarification and detail as it gives counsel the ability to focus on key details of a reconstruction. For this reason, it has been shown to help the jury in understanding the complex information of a case.
