Here are some tips on how to get a perfect scan:

  • Natural light is better than artificial so you need as much light on your face as possible. Outside on sunny day would work better.
  • You should have no shadows on your face.
  • Take off your glasses, hat or other accessories if you may have.
  • If you have long hair, Pull back enough so that they do not cover parts of the face.
  • Use front-facing camera.
  • Hold your phone at eye level, about 45 cm or 18″ from the face.
  • Make sure the face fills the complete circle drawn on your mobile screen.
  • Do not move your phone around, just rotate your head.
  • Do not blink while scanning or you will not get good results.
  • If you have blinked on any picture, repeat the scan.
  • Rotate your head slowly up to 45 degrees in each direction.
  • Just look straight ahead of you and not into the camera.
  • After you have uploaded your scan to NBA 2K17 game, it’ll grade the quality of your face scan. Repeat the scan, if it is not great, because anything lower than that quality may yield horrifying results.
