Title:

    Animation workflow in KILLZONE3™: a fast facial retargeting system for game characters

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Applying facial motion capture data on a virtual actor is always a tedious task. The main problem is how to deal with different face conformations without losing too much of the original dynamic performance range. With this talk, I would like to explain a technique that helped us deliver more than 30 different faces over 70 minutes of Cutscenes for the AAA PS3 exclusive title KILLZONE3™.
