Rokoko accessible facial motion capture
Rokoko has announced a new facial motion capture solution that doesn’t require markers and promises to work on iOS, Android and Desktop.
It works using a camera agnostic add on inside of Rokoko studio, according to the developers all that you require is a simple calibration to get started.
In addition to being able to record and export data, you will also be able to see a real-time preview inside Rokoko Studio and stream capture data live to Unreal, Unity and Motionbuilder.
To hold the phone in place, a head-mounted rig will also be available to purchase and for studios that use Rokoko’s Smartsuit Pro body capture solution, facial capture can be synchronized to capture both body and facial animation
The launch is scheduled for June 2019, but you can sign up now for early access and get a month for free. After the free period, the service is offered for $39 per month. The initial release will support iOS (tailored for iPhone X), with Android and PC planned soon.
