FaceCap X is a low cost facial motion capture solution for Autodesk Maya that allows you to quickly bring to life any Daz 3D Genesis 3 or Genesis 8 character.

Using an iPhone X or newer, record your mocap data with the Face Cap app then use our plug-in to quickly add 51 custom FACS blend shapes to any G8/G3 character and rig it’s face with just 1 click.

    Hi Laylo,
    Just purchased your female Facecap X however when I installed it, it showed error.
    I installed other plugins before but this didn;t happen before.
    May I know how to contact you?

    I found your video Facecap X for Maya on youtube, and in the video, you say it works with any kind of character. My questions before purchasing this wonderful plug in is this:

    1.Do the characters have to all come from Daz? As your documentation doesn’t clearly state the plug in works with all characters.

    2. Also, how would the pipeline work exactly, if I have a fully rigged(both body and face)? Or would we need to just rig the body, and your plug in take care of the facial rigging?

    In your youtube video, around the 55 second’s mark, there’s an alien creature working with your plugin.The results is really close to what we want. So did your plugin create a facial rig for the face (a FACS rig)?

    Kindly treat as urgent. Thank you.

      Hello Toochukwu,
      Thanks for your consideration.
      1. The characters need to be based off the Genesis 3, or Genesis 8 topology, but they don’t need to be purchased from Daz3D.com. They can be bought or made from anywhere as long as they’re based off of the Daz 3D Genesis 3, or Genesis 8 topology.
      2. If your character has a fully rigged body and face you should be able to use those controls in addition to the FACS morphs and controls that FaceCap X will setup. If the face is not rigged it’s not a problem, FaceCap X sets up it’s own rig.
      Whether the body is rigged, or not, shouldn’t make a difference for FaceCap X.

      The alien creature shown in the video is based off Genesis 3 or Genesis 8 topology. Yes, it created the rig for the creature.
      I hope that answers your questions, please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any more.
