I would prefer a 3ds max integration! :D

Craig, can you do me a favour? We need for testing purposes good face-mocap data based on the cohan/naturalpoint marker layout in fbx format.

I have all my face-rig cameras at the moment in our full body rig, it would be really time consuming to rebuild the whole setup at the moment!

Can you give as such a test-file with the fitting reference video? Of course, only if you got them already...

thanks in advance!

When do you need it by? Im on set every night this week...., then away until the 6th.

Which template are you after?

cohan/naturalpoint marker layout... is this the 33 plus four?

If so, I have loads of this from the previous tests in april... not sure if I have the video still

Let me look.

PM me your contact details....

Hi Rock,

The FaceRobot plugin we had was not made publically available. It required a custom build of FaceRobot.

this is all very interesting and hopefully made pave the way for a cool solution. At the moment, its all there, but in a very unharmonious way... If you were keen to have a "talking head" character that relied both on having head rotate values and be used with Face robot, you quite literally hit a brick wall....

I have forwarded the head rotation issue to Autodesk, hopefully they will get back to us with a solution.

The head rotation problem is being looked at by Autodesk dev team. Will post here when I hear any updates from them.

Also next version of arena will have the markerset names updated to match facerobot.
