Ryan Mayeda showed how you can boost your workflow with the latest app.
The iPhone's True Depth camera and ARKit are powerful tools that can be used for virtual production-ready facial animation in real-time with the help of Epic Games' new iOS app, Live Link Face for Unreal Engine.
Epic Games shared a talk by Virtual Production Program Manager Ryan Mayeda on how to use the app to stream high-quality expressions to characters in Unreal Engine via Live Link. The developer also covered advanced topics for virtual production including multicast networking for Unreal Engine multi-user workflows, timecode support for synchronization, remote control with OSC, and more.
The new app, originally released a month ago, lets you stream high-quality facial animation in real-time from iPhone directly onto characters in Unreal Engine. The toolkit combines the powers of Apple’s ARKit and the iPhone’s TrueDepth front-facing camera to track a performer’s face, and then transmit this data directly to Unreal Engine via Live Link over a network.
