Quick Zooms in the Face Graph Editor

Create New Poses Inside FaceFX Studio

Ever see your character make a face in an animation that you really like and wish you could reuse? Did you know that you can easily tell FaceFX Studio to remember how to create that pose and reuse it elsewhere? Follow these steps to learn how:

Clientspec Configuration

When you first start FaceFX Studio, you might have noticed a warning message that said:

A default clientspec file has been created. Please check the warnings in the console for more information, and edit the default clientspec file. You must restart FaceFX Studio before changes to the clientspec file will take effect.

FaceFX Studio references audio by a relative path. If you're working by yourself, you probably don't need to edit the clientspec.

Animation Debugging

Have you ever been previewing your results in FaceFX Studio and find yourself wondering why that one spot just doesn't look correct? Read on to find out how FaceFX Studio can help you figure out what's wrong.

Meet us at SIGGRAPH 2009

For the first time, OC3 Entertainment will be exhibiting FaceFX at SIGGRAPH 2009. We're looking forward to meeting artists, animators, content creators, and producers, and demonstrating how FaceFX is an outstanding solution for facial animation outside of its traditional role in the video game production pipeline. If you're at the show, find us at booth 3706.

More information about our SIGGRAPH presence.

New Website

We're very excited to launch our newly-redesigned website. With the new site, we're trying to create a place on the web where FaceFX users can meet and exchange ideas on how to get the most out of FaceFX. This blog will be a place where the FaceFX devs post updates, announcements, and some tips and tricks. We hope you check back often to learn a little more about using FaceFX.

So browse around, check out the video tutorials, post your questions on the forums, and make yourselves at home!
