Upgrade to Facemotion3d


iFacialMocap was my personal project, but my partner invited me to start developing a new app called Facemotion 3d.

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

https://www.facemotion3d.info/

 

Facemotion3d has several advantages over iFacialMocap.

 However, Facemotion 3d also has some concerns.

Facemotion3d now does a lot of processing on the iOS side.

Facemotion3d has increased the number of avatar polygons.

Therefore, the load on the terminal may increase easily when using it for a long time.

Since we have just released the app, there may be some glitches.

There is also a free trial period, so please consider purchasing carefully.

 

I will focus on the development of Facemotion3d, but iFacialMocap is never deprecated.

Rest assured that iFacialMocap will continue to be updated as long as your relationship with your partner does not deteriorate.
