Category: GDC
Santa Monica, Calif. - Image Metrics Inc. announced the availability of Faceware 3.0, its video performance and artist-driven facial animation software for the videogame, film, visual effects, commercial, and television industries.



Faceware 3.0 incorporates several new features to ensure creative consistency within animation teams, and to increase productivity and ease of use.

A full version of the software is available to download at www.Image-Metrics.com, including assets for free evaluation.

Faceware 3.0 uses a marker-less video analysis technology and artist-driven performance transfer tool set to deliver ultra-high-fidelity, believable facial animation in a fraction of the time of traditional and alternate methods. Faceware offers studios creative flexibility, empowering them to handle creative decisions and iterations in-house.

New features include:
Auto-Pose: Automatic pose suggestion quickly shows artists the most extreme and physically different video performance frames that should be added as relationship poses.
Shared Pose Database: Increase efficiency and consistency with a shared pose database allowing lead animators to establish a character's 'feel' prior to the animation process.
Curve Refinement: New curve refinement tools allow animators to take results output from the retargeting stage and adjust them to suit the intended usage.
