Controlling Facial Rigs With A Mobile App

Controlling Facial Rigs With A Mobile App

Hot Knife Digital Media is getting ready to release Voodoo, its new mobile app and companion Maxcript.

It is a tool that allows to record voice and facial data or communicate directly with a character in 3DS Max.

The process is here quite simple: set the Frame Rate and Recording duration via the settings screen (cog in the top right) you can press record on the main screen and act away. A .wav file and a .vdr will be saved to the Voodoo file sharing folder on your device. You can transfer them to your computer by dragging and dropping into a local folder via Itunes.You should look for FIle Sharing in Itunes and the Voodoo logo to access the files.

Then you need launch Voodoo, select your character mesh, and load the .vdf. Please note that your character must have a Morpher modifier on it and you will need to map the morph channels to the incoming face shapes via the Mapping screen, found under Track / Mapping on the main Voodoo rollout panel.

You can get more details on the tool here.
