Benefits of Using Real-life Actors in Training vs CGI

By May 13, 2024No Comments

MOONHUB’s VR training leverages real-life actors and environments to mirror real-world scenarios, enhancing the authenticity and effectiveness of the learning experience. By integrating human actors and real-life environments into VR training, MOONHUB ensures that learners engage with realistic characters and situations, promoting emotional involvement and skill transfer. MOONHUB’s approach combines the benefits of traditional acting techniques with cutting-edge VR technology, offering a compelling and cost-effective solution for immersive training experiences.


Real-life actors bring genuine emotions, reactions, and nuances to training scenarios, creating a more authentic learning experience compared to CGI-generated characters. Through MOONHUB’s VR platform, learners can access a diverse range of training scenarios, from customer service simulations to emergency response drills, all featuring real-life actors for an unparalleled level of realism and engagement. Observing real-life actors allows learners to mimic and learn from their behaviours, gestures, and verbal cues, facilitating skill acquisition and behaviour modification. The use of real-life actors allows for dynamic interactions and personalised feedback, enabling trainees to practice essential skills in a supportive and immersive environment. 

Emotional Engagement

Human actors can evoke empathy and emotional engagement from learners, enhancing their ability to connect with and retain the training content. This is particularly great for MOONHUB’s Elara training in dementia and healthcare, as well as, our Workplace Well-being training. A Study shows an increase of cognitive and emotional engagement while learning with VR. Results show that emotional engagement throughout the overall learning experience was captured via facial expression extraction.

Flexibility and Adaptability

Real-life actors can portray a wide range of characters and scenarios, offering flexibility in training content and catering to diverse learning needs and preferences. Real-life actors can adapt their performances based on trainee reactions and feedback, providing a dynamic learning environment that CGI cannot replicate. 

MOONHUB uses real-life actors to create realistic VR scenarios that will immerse learners into equipping them with the essential skills needed for their job role. In doing so learners are more likely to retain information, engage deeply with training, and develop practical proficiency. By bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience, MOONHUB revolutionises traditional learning methods, empowering learners to excel in their roles with confidence and competence.
