Frustrated with the reliance on expensive hardware for facial mocap production? Why not opt for pre-recorded videos for facial tracking? Maybe the technology wasn't quite there in the past, or it wasn't accessible to most. But now, the moment has come to put professional actors and video content at the forefront! See how a brand new technology can offer top-tier facial mocap and make collaborative production a reality.

Reallusion is thrilled to introduce iClone AccuFACE, an AI-powered facial tracker that delivers high-quality facial animation, accurately in real-time. AccuFACE can seamlessly capture facial expressions from webcams, GoPros, or existing video files. By integrating Nvidia RTX GPU-accelerated AI technology, AccuFACE revolutionizes facial tracking by eliminating the need for costly hardware or subscription fees, making it accessible to designers of all levels. With the synergy of iClone and Character Creator, crafting new IP characters for professional facial animation is now within reach.

Release note: iClone 8.33 | AccuFACE (Please update by using Reallusion Hub)

CAPTURE PERFORMANCES FROM ANY VIDEO SOURCE 

  • AccuFACE is capable of capturing facial expressions from both webcams and conventional video files.
  • Live Webcam: Compatible with standalone USB web cameras or laptops equipped with integrated webcams, AccuFACE offers optimal tracking resolution of 720p at 30 frames per second.
  • Remote Collaboration: AccuFACE lets production studios seamlessly collaborate with professional actors or voice talents worldwide, liberating animation productivity from equipment dependencies and the restrictions of time or location.


CALIBRATE FOR ACCURACY & INDIVIDUALITY 

Optimize Expressive Range
  • LIVE MODE Calibration: Tailor the character's facial settings to match the live performer with an easy-to-follow guided process, and receive immediate animation feedback for thorough refinement.
  • VIDEO MODE Calibration: When obtaining the ideal calibration poses from a single video source proves challenging, AccuFACE offers the flexibility to search for calibration frames across multiple video files.

FULL-SPECTRUM MOCAP REFINEMENT 
  • Strength Balancing: adapt regional strength adjustments to the actor's individuality and balance expression intensity.  Watch video >
  • Smooth Filter: Eliminate undesirable spasms from the tracking data as a result of exceeding tracking angles, excessive hair coverage, or uneven lighting and shadowing. Watch video >
  • Denoise: AccuFACE offers a comprehensive toolkit to address these common challenges, bringing artists several steps closer to achieving flawless animation. Watch video >
  • Anti-Interference: Cross-region interference and cross-triggering can lead to muddied expressions. AccuFACE interference cancellation can reduce unwanted head, brow, and mouth movements. Watch video >
SINGLE-PASS AUDIO-SYNC 
AccuFACE captures synchronized audio data and facial animation, enabling the rapid generation of voice-synced animations using data from the webcam and microphone.

TIMECODE SYNC FOR LOSSLESS RECORDING 
Timecode-based full-frame animation recording, independent of computer performance. Capture up to 60 fps of clean facial animation data without frame drops.

LIP AND TONGUE ARTICULATION (AccuLIPS) 
Incorporate subtle lips and tongue animation through integrated AccuLIPS technology. Be able to fine-tune viseme and lip shapes for flawless talking or singing animations.

MULTI-LANGUAGE SUPPORT

  • By cleverly bypassing voice-to-text recognition, AccuLIPS can extend its capabilities to other languages beyond English. Lip detection and accuracy can be further improved with additional text scripts while free tools are readily available to convert non-English audio files into their romanized counterparts.

Just comparing it to what epic games has done with Meta Human Animator. They recorded footage with the iphone to get the raw video and depth data and import it into ue5 to process. Is this something on the table to use that kind of recorded data, to help increase accuracy for Accuface in the future? I think Face Mocap only works in real-time. Thinking along the benefits of remote recordings.

Also interested to hear what other users think when comparing it to Face mocap, I unfortunately don't have a compatible iPhone to do the comparison myself right now. Interesting situation, get a refurbished iphone with true depth and Face mocap or Accuface with an RTX card + webcam (which I have).

IC8 AccuFace! !Thanks for Information (RL)
I wonder how many more facial mocaps are coming.
The advantage of Accu Face seems to be that you can also use video recordings.
I'll definitely test it out soon. (webcam)
Hopefully many IC8 users will test it and report back.

I'm currently using IC8 Face Mocap (Iphone) and I'm actually happy with it.
In UE5 I use Meta Human Animator.
Greetings Robert

That new Accuface suits me just fine. I usually find my voice-over actors through the Internet. So that new video feature is ideal. And the price also suits me. After all, this is a complete mocap recording software,

Price wouldn't matter if I was working maybe. I can't figure it out. My character doesn't move when I hit play on the video, so I uninstalled it.

I just downloaded the trial. When I connect to the application, iClone says that the"IP address is different: Sound conversion is unavailable due to AccuFACE and iClone running on separate computers". 

But they don't run on separate computers. I had to change the IP address  10.0.0.85 based on the data in AccuFACE.
