Upgrade to Facemotion3d


iFacialMocap was my personal project, but I was invited by my partner to start developing a new application called Facemotion3d.

The release of Facemotion3d will not make iFacialMocap obsolete, but it will differentiate it in some functional aspects.

I will not discontinue any of the functions that existed in iFacialMocap until now.

 

Information on Facemotion3d can be confirmed from the following WEB page.

[Comparison of iFacialMocap and Facemotion3d]

The button design has also been improved, including animation when the button is pressed.

Facemotion3d can communicate in real time with DAZ Studio.

It also improves the speed of baking animations recorded via streaming.

You can also import audio into the timeline via streaming when baking your animation.

In addition, Facemotion3d makes it easy to create games because you can embed object names inside Unity.

An option to automatically connect to the app at the start of the game and a method to communicate via TCP / IP as well as UDP have been added.

6. multiple VRM import

Facemotion3d allows you to import and register two or more VRM models in the iOS app. You can also fine-tune settings such as lights and camera.

 

7. BlendShape calibration

 

Facemotion3d can calibrate BlendShape.

You can deal with problems such as the avatar's eyes not opening wide and the mouth not closing tightly.

8. The ability to make BlendShape respond to voice recognition

 

When you speak a word that you have registered in the app, you can move the BlendShape corresponding to that word. For example, when you say hello, you can move the hello BlendShape.

 

9.  Importing .scn files

Custom avatars with the .scn format extension can be imported into the Facemotion3d application.

How to create and use .scn files is described in the following article.

Facemotion3d has many other features that iFacialMocap does not have. 

Facemotion3d is a free download. Please, try it.
