Faceware Technologies Partners with Binari Sonori to Offer New Video-Based Localization Service

April 29, 2014 --
DMN Newswire--2014-4-29-- Faceware Technologies, the leading innovator and most experienced provider of markerless 3D facial motion capture solutions, today announced that it has partnered with pioneering localization service provider, Binari Sonori, to launch a new video-based localization service. The service uses Faceware?s professional headcam systems to capture video of a voice actor?s performance at the same time that the audio is being captured, providing both actors and animators with time-saving video reference for localization. The service launches today. Animating the facial movements, and in particular, the lip movements, of digital characters speaking multiple languages can be a very laborious task. If the English audio track is not synced correctly between languages, it requires many time-consuming and costly adjustments. By introducing video-based motion capture into the initial stages of the process, Binari Sonori is now able to provide perfect facial performance and audio reference to international actors. This, in turn, guarantees that facial animation and localized performances sync perfectly in any language.
