Faceware Tech Launches New Indie Facial Mocap Package
Faceware offers complete facial mo-cap package for indie game studios; upgrades pro versions of software and hardware
March 05, 2014 --
?The games market is undergoing tectonic shifts as new platforms emerge. With that shift, we?ve seen downward pressure on production budgets. Yet at the same time, gamers continue to demand quality games with good stories and believable characters,? said Peter Busch, vice president of business development at Faceware Technologies. ?With the new Indie Facial Mocap Package, we hope to give animators at every budgetary level the tools to create and add more realism to their characters, no matter what platform they are created those characters for.?
Faceware has also launched upgrades to two products in its Professional Product Line: the ProHD Headcam and Faceware Analyzer Pro. The HD Headcam Pro system upgrades the current Professional Headcam system with a new option for an HD camera head with 1080p30 or 720p60 HD-SDI output and simultaneous 480i 29.97fps SD composite output. Other enhancements include polished fiberglass helmets, slimmer belt systems, and an optional zero-frame delay HD wireless system. Faceware Analyzer Pro now includes the features of batch/script capability and export landmark positions, which gives users the ability to export the X,Y positions of the landmark (Marker) positions and is great for quality control, shader integration, and/or facial research and study. For more information on the new package and product upgrades, visit Faceware at GDC 2014 (Booth 735), go to www.facewaretech.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
