The face detection technology underlying the ID Face, will help the creators to make their characters as realistic as possible without having to use the equipment for motion capture. It is in the example shown, the developers Studio Next Games, working on creating a title with elements of augmented reality The Walking Dead: Our World.
To make the facial expressions of the characters in the game similar to the facial expressions of living people, it was decided to develop a special tool that allows you to capture facial movements with a camera TrueDepth, says Mikael Achren, creative Director of Studio Next Games. The data obtained is used to generate emotions and antics of the characters, making them more alive.
The tool of motion capture created by Next Games, is impressive, says Andrew Webster, a columnist for The Verge. “I personally watched as Mikael [Acren] used the front camera of the iPhone X to record the movements of your face, says Webster. — He then gave the recording to my laptop, and I saw that his expression appeared Daryl (the character in the universe of “the Walking Dead”)”.
The motion capture technology is not new, but usually requires special equipment and Studio photography. Not all developers, especially beginners, have the opportunity to pay for the labor of professionals in the field of motion capture. Experience Next Games proves iPhone X can replace the whole thing, saving the game is a fair amount of money.
