If the characters in your gaming experience haunt your mind, visit you in your nightmare and cause you to stay awake with your lights on – we’re thrilled to be a part of that digital fright!
Faceware’s solutions have been used across a wide variety of digital entertainment products, from NBA 2K titles to the latest in the Call of Duty franchise, each time ensuring that the digital faces we see on screen feel completely convincing.
In virtual reality games, these facial animations swoop by in moments of sheer terror, striking fear into the heart of those who dare to look. A realistically contorted face is key to that, and that’s what Faceware’s hardware and software delivers for developers.
Faceware products deliver what developers are envisioning for these gruesome visages – specifically, the Faceware ProHD Headcam, which is worn by actors when performing roles, and then the duo of Analyzer and Retargeter with their animation team.
Analyzer draws upon Faceware’s sophisticated back-end to capture every nuance of the facial performance – all without the need for markers. From there, Retargeter takes the captured data and applies it to the facial rig, bringing the actor’s performance to life in the game world.
