Facerig

Facial tracking software uses your webcam feed and presents you as a high-quality 3D character, mimicking your facial expressions and position. Also claims to alter your voice amongst other features.

The project was featured on Indiegogo and has already reached it’s target with a month to go - video embedded below demonstrates many interesting features:

FaceRig is a program enabling anyone with a webcam to instantly embody any character they want. The output can be streamed to Skype, Twitch or any service that  uses a webcam. It can also be instantly recorded as a movie. For now we’re focusing on the portrait and the audio, but we aim to do more in the future.

It is currently in development, but we’re already having lots of fun with it. We, the developers, would love to have the chance to finalize it and keep it indie to make it available at a low price for everyone to enjoy;  that’s why we’re on Indiegogo. We hope you’ll join in and help us create something fresh and fun.
