Unity 3D and Faceshift
AnimationsBut even with rigs available in Unity, it is still a tedious process to keyframe an animation, and 2D based tracking methods just don’t give the necessary quality. This is where faceshift comes into play. With faceshift and a depth camera you can simply become your character, and drive it with your own face. And today, jointly with the Unity 4.3 release, we publish a free Unity plugin to map faceshift expressions onto arbitrary Unity assets. You can find the tutorial on our official documentation and the video tutorials directly on this page.

Unity Video TutorialsThe first video tutorial explains how easy it is to map animations onto unity characters. Animations are captured in faceshift, exported in .fsb format and dropped onto characters inside of unity. Then the user has to define for each of the parameters that faceshift tracks what the corresponding blendshapes combinations in unity are, and can write out an animation.
The second video tutorial shows you how to drive your unity character live using faceshift studio.
