11. When you long press the screen of the SmartPhone App, the 3DCG character's face will face forward.

 

12. If you create up to 52 shapeKeys according to the sample scene naming rules, you can move the original character.

If you want to move the shape keys of multiple objects

 

By specifying the name of the group that contains the object, you can search for and move the shape keys of all objects, such as children and grandchildren, within the group hierarchy.

 

(As the number of ShapeKey nodes increases, the operation becomes heavier, so if you want to make the operation faster, it is better to combine the meshes as much as possible and use it)

If you bake while animating a character in Blender in real time, the processing load of Blender will increase and the motion may shift.
Press the “REC” button in the iOS app to record, then use the “Bake Recorded Animation” button in the PC app to receive and bake the motion in non-real time for better baking.
