FaceBuilder for Blender 2021.1: now with AI [$]

We made the first step in raising our add-on to the new level of smartness with AI.

Precisely, we added face auto-alignment to FaceBuilder. When you press the ‘Align Face’ button, a couple of neural networks will find a face on the photo and set up all required pins to match the position, shape, and expression. The results are not always 100% accurate at the moment, so it might require some manual adjustments, but it radically reduces the time of shaping the models. So much, we’ve actually stopped doing this manually in our team and we don’t want to go back!

Also, the latest Blender 2.93 Alpha is now supported. Don’t forget that we added 51 ARKit-compatible FACS blendshapes in the previous release!

The full list of improvements:

  • Automatic face alignment
  • Blender 2.93 Alpha support
  • Simplified camera settings, removed camera groups
  • Many minor fixes and improvements

Download the add-on from 30 days of fully-functional unrestricted trial for new users included.
