Does Motion Live allow me to do this ?

You would need Faceware (so around $1200 or so, last time I looked) as well as Motion Live (maybe the combo pack is $1200 -- haven't looked at pricing lately).

My advice is to go with FaceLive and an iPhone XR.  You can do it for hundreds cheaper and it's far better (I have both and I MUCH prefer FaceLive over Faceware, which is a royal PITA).

Maybe. I don't know about it being a PITA though.  I don't have FaceLive. I have Faceware. All I can tell you is that -contrary to FaceLive- Faceware allows remote recording. That means your actors can live all over the world; they just have to have a common webcam, record their facial expressions and sent the video (as well as the sudio) files to you through the Internet. That's all.

And that, my friend, is PRICELESS!

Edit: You can use the iPhone for CT4, just like with iClone.  And in either case it's only a few hundred (it's the hardware that costs in those cases).

Going the webcam route will always be around $1200 more or less.

I can upgrade to the CT4 version for $219 with motion live & face3d.
This allows the use of the web cam.

The same in Iclone is £1200.

1.Am I missing something here?
2. Can the facial animations created in CT4 be exported to use in Iclone 7>
