FacePro animation outsourcing at $5/sec

FacePro (http://www.facepro.net) has recently revamped their facial animation product offering with rates as low as $5/sec. To streamline the approval process, they've created REV, an online approval tool that uses FaceFX's rendering ability. Customers log into REV to view and comment on the animations that FacePro has worked on.

Definitely worth a look for developers that want to outsource tweaking FaceFX animations.

Sample FaceFX output

We've added sample output files in different languages so people can easily see what FaceFX is capable of.

Most of the files are untweaked, meaning there was no artist intervention after generating the animation from audio and text. In fact, there was no artist intervention at all because the 3D characters were generated from www.evolver.com. The entire process of preparing each Evolver character was scripted as a proof-of-concept for a potential server-based FaceFX product.
