FaceRig

Unknown-7

FaceRig enables anyone to live-puppet a fully 3D figure, or sprite-based 2.5D character. It uses your webcam to map your facial movements and speech to animate the avatar – with a growing list of additional modules supporting Intel® RealSense™ cameras, and Leap Motion™ (for hand control). Expressions and idle animations can be triggered by mouse or keyboard, and an app for mobile is on the way.

NaturalFront: Photo to Avatar in Unity

NaturalFront has released their latest version of their photo-to-3D head software as a Unity plugin. Features seem very similar to Reallusion’s CrazyTalk although existing entirely within Unity. You get a 3D head based on your photo, that can be animated.
