FaceRig is a program enabling anyone with a webcam to digitally embody awesome characters. It is currently in development and we estimate the public Beta to become available on the 29'th of August 2014 (and the final version to be ready in December 2014). It is meant to be an open creation platform so everybody can make their own characters, backgrounds or props and import them into FaceRig.
FaceRig is being developed by Holotech Studios and the image based face tracking SDK being used is provided by Visage Technologies. If you want to independently test the Visage Technologies face tracker you can do so by visiting the following link on an HTML5 enabled browser
FaceRig has three versions:
We believe that FaceRig will entertain many gamers, modelling and animation artists, members of various fandoms, streamers, web casters, YouTubers and their audiences.
For now we're focusing on just tracking and rendering the portrait with its expressions, but we aim to do more in the future. The FaceRig end goal is to provide a full featured real time digital actor set for home use.
Voice alteration will not be available at the start of Beta except as a local effect (it will not be streamed out). You can test streaming it out ahead of time if you use a third party virtual microphone driver).
Numeric export of the tracked expression data (exporting the motion capture data to use in other applications) will be a feature reserved for the Studio version. FaceRig Classic and Pro only output already rendered video and audio.
FaceRig is an indie initiative, and its development so far has been successfully crowd-funded through Indiegogo. A warm thank you goes to our amazing backers for their support and enthusiasm.
