Markerless Facial Capture and Facial Animation, in Real Time

Face Plus is the world’s first facial capture and animation technology delivered directly inside a 3D game engine. Forget about expensive equipment, sticky markers, endless importing and exporting from and to several 3D programs… With Face Plus, all you need to do is sit down in front of a webcam, act out the expressions you want to apply to your 3D character, and watch it happen in real time within your game engine.

Want to see it in action? Watch Unplugged, a Mixamo animated short.

How does it work?

The Face Plus and Mixamo Face Rig documentation provides more information about how Face Plus works and how to set up your own character. Face Plus is provided with a few demo scenes and the Battery Boy character, so you can start animating in Unity with a single click of the mouse.

How do I use it with my character?

You can hook up any character to Face Plus. If you are using Blendshapes (we recommend this for simplicity and flexibility) all you need to do is to create Blendshapes for your character using the Mixamo Face Rig naming convention as described in the Face Plus and Mixamo Face Rig documentation.

Included with Mixamo All Access

Face Plus is available as part of the Mixamo All Access pass. On top of Face Plus, All Access users enjoy one year of unlimited access of the entire suite of Mixamo products: All our 3D character models, the entire collection of 3D character animations, our Auto-Rigger and the Unlilmited+ Animation Store plugin that brings the Collection directly into Unity.

Made for Unity Developers

The Face Plus plugin was developed with Unity devs in mind. The UI is simple: click the record button to capture your facial expression, creating an .anim file for your character. You are then free to edit the 3D facial animation, tweak it to get the exact result you want and… that’s it!

Face Plus requires a Unity Pro license, version 4.2 and above. Face Plus will work with bone animations for 4.2 users. Unity 4.3 users will get the full Face Plus experience with blendshape facial animations.
