Analizing and Retargeting 

Once you have stabilized your video footage of the face and created the 3D model, you will have to bake and sync up the video projection onto the animated mesh. This not only allows the video to be baked into the texture of the model but also provides a "tracing paper" projection for highly accurate and speedy retargeting of animations. (or animation clean up) 

In this section, you will learn about:

 

1. Analyzing Video Footage

Use the Faceware Analyzer to track the facial movements through machine learning and markerless technology. Analyzer will create a general model of the facial movement and all in-between frames based on that model.

Estimated time: 4hrs min per minute of footage, speeding up over time as the shared poses library expands.

 

2. Retargeting Video Footage 

to animate model's mesh in time with the projected image using Retargeter and blend shapes. The DDH process provides a "tracing paper" projection for very accurate retargeting.

Estimated time: 4hrs min per minute of footage, speeding up over time as the shared poses library expands.
