There is any opensource option to faceshift, I’m curious about it.
Currently not that I know of: So for now we are stuck with using the normal camera tracking, which should open source.
What the interface does is basically poll an interface that the Faceshift has open, and uses that information to change the avatars blendshapes on the fly.
seems a few things around hifi has the dde built in that works with a webcam
would be nice if that had gui
its interesting technology all stuck waiting for a dominant capture system to emerge.
Interesting, so lets say that I create shapekeys… I have to buy faceshift so I can incorporate them and make it work in HiFi if I want to upload my own avatar and make it work even with the normal camera tracking?
you dont need faceshift , u just need to make a fst file thats a tex file that hooks up the blendshapes to the facial tracking.
I did a post that i hope hasnt gone out of date 2 much a while back on how to do it
Ohh ok, now I’m more clear, thanks a lot Judas.
I suggest also taking a peek at the generalized standards suggestion I wrote a while back https://alphas.highfidelity.io/t/avatars-standard-compendium/6200
It covers everything from skeletons to blendshapes, naming conventions and custom stuff.
I found this back in the archives too: https://alphas.highfidelity.io/t/face-analysis-sdk-by-the-csiro-csiro-gpl2/1215
Looks unfinished as far as interfaces go, but it is OSS so could likely be pulled in and adapted.
