It's released and I updated through the Hub a few hours ago. You may need to refresh the Hub and try again.

Excited to try this, especially for enhanced face animations.

If we're not using an iphone for face mocap, will other plugins like straight up Faceware work with this?

Congratulation for the new features.

I understand that the new Lipsync feature is mainly English.  However, what will happen if the voice track is not English (as in my case, my primary voice track is not English)?  Would the Lipsync still working like version 7.8, (the quality from 7.8 lipsynce with the non-English voice track is acceptable for me), or it will not working anymore?

The accu-lips is so awsome!

The generate text is pretty good, it only misses a few words and you can correct it and then apply.

I am excited, I wish I didn't have to work today.

They've been saying for a while now there'd be an iray update in early march that makes it useable for people with a RTX 3090. Is that included in this? Am I able to try it now?
