Here are the pack’s details:

1. Facial Animation Systems

  • Tools for 4D clip import and processing.
  • 4D clip rendering with timeline integration.
  • 4D frame fitting, allowing detail injection from the facial rig.
  • Integration of facial rig from Snappers.
  • Pose facial rig directly in Unity

2. Skin Attachment System

  • Drive meshes and transforms in relation to dynamically deforming skin.
  • Used to drive eyebrows, eyelashes, stubble, and logical markers.
  • Accelerated by C# Job System and Burst Compiler.

3. Shaders and rendering

  • Full shader graphs for skin/eyes/teeth/hair as seen in The Heretic.
  • Custom pass for cross-material normal buffer blur (tearline).
