Markerless Facial Capture and Facial Animation, in Real Time
Face Plus (Preview) 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 (Preview), all you need 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.
How do I use it with my character?
You can hook up any character to Face Plus (Preview). 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.
Made for Unity Developers
Face Plus was made for Unity devs. Click the record button to capture your facial expression, creating an ANIM file for your character. Then edit the 3D facial animation to get the exact result you want.
