The Chaos Scans Library is unique in quality and variety. It includes categories such as car paint, leather,fabric and more. Last year, 300 Foilco foils were published on it. Now 1'300 cover materials from WINTER & COMPANY are added. Coated and uncoated papers, textile leather imitations and book cloths are now available in Chaos scans in unprecedented quality. These scans have a real-world response to light and are therefore the ideal building blocks for ultra-photorealistic images and animations. The perfect starting point for digital prototyping, virtual photography and 3D animation.

Scanning the 1,300 WINTER & COMPANY cover materials took over one year. With this offer, books and luxury packaging can now be optimally prototyped, rendered and visualised. Almost all WINTER & COMPANY materials can be finished with hot foil. A stroke of luck that the 300 foils of the British supplier Foilco are also available as Chaos scans. Combining both offers results in more than 300'000 possibilities! This is the ideal starting point to represent projects in a lightfast way. With this technology, one can quickly present different variants worldwide anywhere at any time, compare options and facilitate the decision-making process. The .vrscan format can be used in V-Ray and the most popular content creation tools like 3ds Max, Maya, Rhino, SketchUp, Cinema 4D, Modo and Houdini.
By publishing their offer as scans, WINTER & COMPANY, Foilco and Chaos set completely new standards for designers, creatives and the industry. The digital prototypes created with these scans can also be produced physically, because all WINTER & COMPANY materials and Foilco stamping foils are available from stock. The digital prototyping effectively accelerates processes and gains accordingly in relevance.
The Chaos scan format enables a consistent appearance. Packaging and books present themselves in a seamless appearance, from the digital prototype to the product.
The offer of WINTER & COMPANY, Foilco and Chaos forms a growing and exciting ecosystem. Thanks to this collaboration, digital presentation possibilities have moved a little closer to the physical world. For a #phygital future.
