Facial Motion Capture Products

Our facial motion capture products have been used on hundreds of titles, including Oscar-winning feature films, independent web series, and 7 of the top 10 games of 2017.

Single- Camera Technology

With our suite of facial motion capture products, you can easily capture stunning, realistic facial motion from an actor with a single video camera, completely markerless.

Balance of Quality and Speed

We believe the best facial animation comes from the combination of cutting-edge technology and an intuitive artist-friendly workflow.


Our realtime and non-realtime software is available as standalone products as well as plug-ins to common Autodesk animation packages and game engines.


We have designed two head mounted camera systems that capture ideal video for our facial motion capture software; as well as easy sync with any body mocap system.

How It Works

Record your video using a HMC, DSLR, GoPro, or Webcam

Record your performance with just a single video source, such as a DSLR, GoPro, Webcam, prosumer camera, or ideally one of our head mounted camera systems—  completely markerless.

Analyze the facial motion from your videos

Our robust facial recognition technology will automatically detect and track your performers face. Our pixel-based approach samples and tracks the entire face, including subtle eye movement that give soul and emotion to your characters.

Apply the motion capture data to your characters

Our animation software plugs-in to the most popular character animation packages.  We have an intuitive pose-based workflow that most artists refer to as their “assistant animator.”

Easily refine and polish your facial animation

We have features that allow you to easily manipulate, change, and embellish your results with ease. We also track and retarget your performances in different facial “groups;” allowing independent motion for true to life emotion.
