Eat 3D – Next Gen Facial Rigging for Games
In this training video the instructor takes you through the entire process of creating a fully bone based facial rig which is transferable to next-gen game engines like Unreal Editor 3. This video focuses on facial bone rigging and animation. Most game engines do not support blend shapes so it is imperative to know how to create a solid facial rig with just using bones. With the right rig and setup, it is possible to create stunning facial animations in very short amounts of time. If you are a student this video is great to become exposed to professional techniques in the game industry.
