Facial Motion Capture

Project Description

For the Tool of Destruction project I was also in charge of the facial animation for the character. This was my first experience with facial animation and facial motion capture. 

Throughout the process I learned to do a facial shoot, retarget the animation, do the Cleanup and merge it with the body animation.

Project Description

I did research into facial motion capture for the fighting game project during the first half. I wanted to look into getting facial to work with voice overs and different types of rigs. 

For our game the possibility of using facial animation and voice over was still there, and our rigger needed to know the limitations.

During the process not using dots to pinpoint the locations to retarget to and the actor having a moustache made it difficult to work with the footage.
