Faceware face rigging on Voxon volumetric display

Using Faceware To Create An Animated Face For Our Volumetric Display

We recently collaborated with Faceware Technologies to see what face rigging animation could look like on the Voxon VX1 volumetric display. Faceware is one of the world’s leaders in facial motion capture technologies. Jim Su from Beach Studios provided us with the rigging and motion capture and we set about putting this onto the Voxon VX1 display. Programming is done via Unity Plugin or 64-bit Windows API.

You can find the face that we used here: http://cgiface.com/ and the photogrammetry can be found here: http://pixellighteffects.com/

The Results

Here’s the results when displaying onto the Voxon VX1… You can easily see how this may be interesting for the advertising and experiential marketing spaces.
