Opensource option to faceshift?


#1

There is any opensource option to faceshift, I’m curious about it.


#2

Currently not that I know of: So for now we are stuck with using the normal camera tracking, which should open source. :slight_smile:

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.

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.
